You can sync using Active Sync on two computers.

For example, I sync from work desktop to pda, take my pda home and then sync those details onto my home PC.

Try clearing all the selections and deleting the computers in Active Sync and setting them all up again. Tools - Options

I have done that twice.  Is there a setting for allowing synching of multiple items.  For instance, I want it to sync the contacts in both the desktop and laptop.  Seems like there has to be something not quite set up right.  Otherwise, I would not be getting a message to disassociate with the first computer to associate with the second for the sync.

What version are using (I assume it is 4.5) as syncing with 2 machines is standard.

See the image below


Sounds as though your install is corrupt?

Thanks for points.

Was it a corrupt install? How did you fix it?

The install was corrupt.  I reinstalled it, and it worked. Thanks.
