Publisher's Description

Microsoft ActiveSync is the latest sync software release for Windows Mobile-based devices. It provides a great synchronization experience with Windows®-based PCs and Microsoft Outlook right out of the box. ActiveSync acts as the gateway between your Windows-based PC and Windows Mobile-based device, enabling the transfer of Outlook information, Office documents, pictures, music, videos and applications to and from your device. In addition to synchronizing with a desktop PC, it can synchronize directly with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 so that you can keep your e-mail, calendar data, tasks and contact information updated wirelessly when youâ??re away from your PC.

I, too have experienced the same "breakage" when simply trying to install ASync to "fix" the time-change issue. Little did I know that the installation of 4.5 would BREAK EVERYTHING! I can't sync my P/PC now and in my line of work this is very necessary. Thanks a lot Microsloth!

Works fine for me with zero problems. Does everything that I would expect it to do and does it very well.

Great application

If we break it you will pay.. (pay for upgrade, fix, support etc.)

By reading the README.DOC (microsoft.com), there are several drawbacks when installing ActiveSync 4.5 that prefer to keep with 4.2.

Going from 4.2 to 4.5 BROKE my SYNC!

UNACCEPTABLE!

This is not release candidate stuff. This is junior SDETs getting their feet wet.

For those of you who end up with error 85010014...

Very unstable version. Version 4.2 works ok, but not this beta.

The last USABLE version was ActiveSync 3.8.

What the HELL are you doing to our software, MS?

Gotta agree here, not only does it crash BUT still no not possible to have two different items synched.
1 PDA
1 Smartphone "WM5"
Not only rthat but if there is unresolved items, clicking resolve, ALWAYS gave you a choice via pop up as what you want to do..replace pc info or Device info.
This is no longer the case.
Removed and back to 4.2

Sorry "atab0y" I don't see any WLAN sync capabilities on this version. Just a few minor changes. Am I missing something? The ability to do a wireless sync to my PC again would be great.

The improvements did not deserve .3 versions.
It just a minor update. so better to call it 4.21 or something like that.

Microsoft need to add many thing to improve it.

the something new is that it seems to be able to synch wirelessly again. i think the last version that did this was v3.8. since we have to rate, giving it a 5 due to the re-ad of wireless synching. otherwise don't know, haven't used the product. haven't used my ipaq since went blackberry and ibm x41 tablet...

What is new in 4.5 Beta 2 compared to 4.2? Is there a backup function available like in the 3.x versions?
