Synchronise IPAQ 3010 on a Vista Machine

  Tycho 10:55 10 Jan 2008

I have Vista Home Premium on my new laptop. I am told that Office 2000 pro will install. Will I be able to install the ActiveSynch software and then synch the old HP310 with Outlook?

The mobile device centre will not work with older versions of Outlook. You will need Outlook 2003 or newer. If you use an older version Vista, in its inimitable way, suggests a solution - update to the newer Microsoft software!

Without a new version of Outlook you will be able to copy files but syncing calendars etc. will not be possible.

I have Pocket PC version 4.20.0. Will that do for the mobile device centre?

Windows Calendar, Contacts etc. which are supplied with Vista won't do, then?

I was unable to sync with Windows Calendar. If I remember correctly, mobile device centre does not give you the option to sync calendar unless you have Outlook installed. I would be interested to know if you find a way to do this.

When I originally set up to Synch with Ofice 2K on a W2K machine I read the dire warnings on the box about installing the software before connecting the iPAQ to the computer.

Have you managed to synch using Office 2003 even after experimenting with Windows Calendar?

I can sync files but I do not have a copy of Office 2003 to try syncing calendar etc..
