404 when importing contacts from Google

Post by gazumped » Sat Jun 06, 2015 4:54 am

Hi. I'm using VM Ultimate 11.2.8 and trying to import my Google contacts; getting a 404 error when using both my Gmail username and my full address in the login box. Is this an error or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Gaz, welcome to the forums. Google recently disabled access to Google Contacts when using a username/password for authentication. Access now requires use of OAuth2.0 (the same mechanism VueMinder uses for accessing Google Calendar).

This has been corrected in the next minor release of VueMinder. The release should be available within a few days. I'll post a reply when it's ready.

Version 11.2.9 is now available. This version has been updated to use OAuth2.0 for authenticating access to Google Contacts. This is now the only authentication technique Google supports. Older versions of VueMinder will be unable to sync with Google Contacts unless updated. To update, click the "Check for Updates" command on the Help menu.
