Hello -

I am having trouble installing Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 on Windows 8.1. I realize it is not fully supported by Microsoft but many people have been able to get it to work. Most responses online have come down to .Net 3.5 which I have verified is installed and confirmed it is working by installing other software that requires it.

When you plug the device in it says the installer has encountered an error. If you run the software manually it will start the install get about halfway and roll back the bar and close the installer without any notice. It does not write anything to the event logs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

WMDC will automatically install if you have .NET 3.5 installed: http://community.intermec.com/t5/General-Development-Developer/Howto-run-Windows-Mobile-Device-Center-in-Windows-8/td-p/21516

You do not need to download and install wmdc yourself.

I had verified .NET 3.5 was installed and working. Even tried reinstalling to no avail. Ended up having to reinstall the computer to get it to work.
