Conduit setups

I haven't been able to find any authoritative information on this issue, so here goes. In the "custom" selection on the Hotsync application, you get a list of conduits, and have the opportunity to enable/disable, or select sync, palm or desktop overlays the other, etc. However, some conduits seem not to let you do any of this; you hit "change" and nothing happens. Furthermore, there seems to be no way to remove a conduit once you have added it to the list.  

I have tried out a couple of third party sync programs and conduits, much to my dismay, since my setup is now hosed up totally, and I don't know how to undo it. Removing/uninstalling the offending apps seems to have no effect. Uninstalling and reinstalling Palm desktop seems to have no effect either. It "remembers" all the offending setups. I am sure that Hotsync keeps a table or database somewhere that defines what conduits it uses, and what options are set, but I can't find it, or any reference to it in any of the documentation. Does anyone know where they hide this info?  

BTW: Win NT 4.0 SP5; Palm IIIx, PalmOS 3.3, Palm Desktop 3.0.1, Hotsync 3.0.4.  

Thanks to all

This information is stored in the Windows registry. I'm on Win98 and you're on Win NT4 so I'm not sure how different the tree structure is, but here's where mine is...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/U.S. Robotics/Pilot Desktop/

and then Application 0 through Application X

You're right.  I have the same registry entries.  Ugh... this may be worse than I thought.

Anyway, thanks for the help.  I'll see where it leads...

Just a suggestion - never tried it.

Delete all those entries and download and install the latest Palm Desktop. Try to get syncing to/from the Palm Desktop working correctly before moving on to other conduits.

thanx david, your answer has helped me also. :)
one thing - remember to unload and re-load the HotSync manager so the changes to the registry apply (the HotSync manager loads the information from the registry only when IT is loaded, not at runtime)
