ActiveSync 4.5 for windows 7

    General discussion

  • There is a compatibility problem to install setup.exe with ActiveSync on my Asus Notebook. A connection by PC and PDA with Windows mobile platform should be running. These PC goes on by Windows Vista and Windows 7 on different partition. To perform setup.exe a window is shown with error message “no compatibility”. It’s the same with Windows 7 compatibility mode. What have I to do to avoid this problem?

  • You cannot use ActiveSync 4.5 because it is not compatible with Windows 7: starting from Windows Vista, you have to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center.

  • I have been experiencing the same problem since July 1st.  Activesync was working fine on Windows 7 and then stopped syncing.  I uninstalled and now can't re-install.  After reading this string, it seems like I need to download Windows Vista to get the Windows Mobile Device Center and then I can re-install the Activesync 4.5.  Does that mean I have to purchase both Window Vista, and then Windows 7 again?  I'm trying to figure out the sequence and also I don't want to loose anything I have on Windows 7 that might not be available on Windows Vista.  Any recommendations?  Thank You!
