I recently did the automatic upgrades to a Windows XP Pro machine. Since then, I have not been able to HotSync my Palm Pilot (Tungsten T2). I re-installed the Palm software and selected USB port as my connection. When I put the Palm in the cradle, Windows "finds" the Palm and states that the hardware is ready to be used. When I try to Hot Sync, the Palm tries to connect to the computer and then I get an error on the Palm stating: The connection between your handheld computer and the desktop cound not be established. Please check your setup and try again.
When I look at the setup in the Palm software, it states that Com1 is not available.
I am unable to remove the Windows update that I downloaded earlier this month - it is just not an option.
