Windows Mobile Device Center and Treo 700wx with release version Vista issues? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Vista is shipping with Mobile Device Center in the control panel but it does not seem to sync when you put your phone on the craddle. I may be wrong on this but below is what I had to use to get it to sync with Office 2007 Ultimate Outlook.

    Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center Beta 3 for Windows Vista (x86)

    This is a beta so I am wodering if this is the proper thing to use but everything I read points that way. Dont even tell me Vista was not shipped with out this being released . You no longer use Active Sync with mobile devices in Vista. You instead use the Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center.

    Looking to see if anyone has anything to add. Aslo now for some reason my bluetooth cababilties on my phone do not work I can not turn it on. This may or may now be related to Vista.

  • I have nothing to add to this except thanks for posting this. I am running on Vista Ultimate and Outlook 2007 both RTM versions. I had to install this beta piece to get the sync to work. Even then it seems to have critical errors when syncing sometimes. I find it hard to believe that they would ship Vista minus this piece. Oh well thanks for the post it helped me out.
