The impression I get from the occasional correspondent is that NCX does work on OS X Lion, but I can’t confirm that first-hand. All I can say is that the last release of NCX (v1.3 build 44, available at <http://newtonresearch.org/connection/>) does work on OS X Snow Leopard.

Although the iSync app no longer exists in OS X Lion, the underlying Sync Services framework is still very much alive. It is that framework that NCX uses to synchronise Names with Address Book. I would say this is not the source of the failure to launch:

I do know that the Backup Inspector fails to launch on OS X Lion unless you rename it BackupInspector (ie without a space in the name).
