reinstalling Windows Mobile Device Center on Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I've uninstalled Windows Mobile Device Center (from vista bushiness).

    Only then I've found out that the download at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/devicecenter.mspx

    only contains the drivers update and not the complete program. How can I reinstall Windows Mobile Device Center?

    Maybe this is not the best place for that question, but I could not find any microsoft forum about the new mobile device center.

    thanks

  • Hi chuck

    Here is the thing:

    I've uninstalled both "Windows Mobile Device Center" and "Windows Mobile Device Center Driver Update"

    After uninstalling I could not load "Mobile Device Center" from control panel of course.

    I've install the driver update, and still could not load mobile device center, BUT - when I reconnected my pda, Mobile Device Center was installed automatically (I have no idea where from) and everything is running again - I can set the partnership again.

    You can download the driver update from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=C23C8E6A-A72D-4AEF-9663-31CE2FEFBADA&displaylang=en

    then restart and reconnect the pda.

    Good luck

  • Did you ever get an answer to this?  I'm having the exact same problem and can't find a solution.
