I'm using Windows Mail (which uses the windows contact store behind the scenes) to connect to the gmail imap server. I would like to have my gmail contacts available to me when using Mail.
How can I set up a two-way sync to automatically sync the Windows Contact store with Gmail Contacts?
Please note: there seems to be a lot of resources for how to sync to outlook, these solutions wouldn't work for me as I'm not using outlook.

As far as I know if you don't have a Google Apps account, there is no active bidirectional sync. You could just set up an imap Gmail account in Windows Mail, but there's no (official) tool to sync the changes you make locally back to Gmail.
You refer to the Outlook post, but I think I they concluded something the same there.
I recommended using GcalDaemon there, but I think it only gives you access to your addressbook.

if you have an iphone, you can sync your gmail contacts with your iphone via microsoft exchange, then sync your iphone contacts with windows address book via itunes.

Try this one out:
Haven't tried it myself yet (Installing now), but it looks promising.

On the Mac you can have your address book bi-directionally sync with Google contacts. I am looking too for something like that for my desktop pc.

Windows Mail and GMail both understand the concept of a CSV, so I would export my GMail contacts to a CSV then import the CSV in Windows Mail.
