MS ActiveSync 3.0 not finding COM port on IBM Thinkpad
Posted on 2000-02-15
I am trying to synchronize (for the first time) an Compaq Aero 1530 (running Windows CE) and an IBM ThinkPad (running NT 4.0) utilizing Microsoft's ActiveSync 3.0 setup. When it tries to connect, I continue to get an error indicating that Com1 & Com2 are unavailable, and that Com3 is available, but not being recognized. I have an network/modem card which is utilizing Com3. I have changed it to use Com2 and even removed the card to see if that would free up the Com port it's looking for...but it still gives the same error message. Both the palm pilot and laptop are using Outlook 2000.
