Windows Mobile-Based Device connectivity service won't start = error 126
Posted on 2013-05-17
I have a customer trying to get an older Dell Axim to connect to her Windows 7 computer via Windows Mobile Device Center, but will not. WMDC will not open...because neither of the "Windows Mobile-based" services will start. The main service "Windows Mobile-Based Device Connectivity service" will not start--I get Error 126:the specified mobile cannot be found, and the other service "Windows Mobile2003-based Device Connectivity service" will not start because the main service won't start.
I've tried permissions - both are now set to local system, this is a fresh install of Win7 32-bit after customer had a drive crash. Not much on google...other than a format->reinstall, anyone have any other ideas?
