ActiveSync 4.5 wont sync two PCs Calendars, Contacts & Tasks. Only ONE set allowed ?!?!
Posted on 2007-10-18
I just got a new PDA (ASUS A626 - WinMobile 6 Classic) which requires MSActiveSync 4.5. I was able to Sync with my work PC without a problem. When I brought it home and set up the Sync AS 4.5 informed me that I COULDN'T Sync Contacts, Calendar & Tasks as <WorkPC> was already set up to do that and if I DID want to change I could. THE PROBLEM is that in order to change to the new config (NOT simply ADD) AS 4.5 would first need to DELETE that data from my PDA.
Both PCs are WinXP Pro SP2 running ActiveSync 4.5.
Rather than Impact either my Home or Work Exchange environments (Yes, I run an Exchange server at home) I have ALWAYS Sync'ed two PCs instead of One Exchange Environ and one PC environ.
In having upgraded my device and ActiveSync am I no longer going to be able to COMBINE and maintain both sets of information ?!?!? WHY ON EARTH WOULD NEW SOFTWARE TAKE A STEP BACKWARDS ?!?!
