Once a new contact form has been created and published, I have set as default form. However, when I enter a new contact in the new default form, save and close, then reopen to view it is the original default outlook form. How can I adjust the actual look of the general tab for all contacts?

The General tab is not configurable, but if you use a custom form to create a contact, it should 'stick' when you re-open the contact. If you want to apply a custom form to existing items, you need to use a program called DocMessageclass to change the items to the new form.

how about doing it programmatically by vba or Visual studio interop.
I mean I found some solutions that involve registry but i wonder if there is a simpler way
also found that the solutions need CDO which is not combatible with MS-Outlook 2010

You can change the form used on an existing item using a macro or a utility - as log as you are using 32bit office, docmessageclass utility will do it, 64bit needs to use a macro or a utility written for 64bit.

You can also change the default form used for a folder by VBA. The value is stored in the PR_DEF_POST_MSGCLASS_W property. Since Outlook 2007 you can access it by the PropertyAccessor object, so no need for CDO 1.21.
