Re: Palm Desktop 4.2 with Windows 10 - Hotsync problem

Thanks for all your advice WyreNut, which is much appreciated. 

 

And I am much relieved that I can go on using my Palm set up for the foreseeable future after moving from XP to Windows 10.  It will allow me to decide when smart phones have progressed to the point where I want to change over to one.  So far there have been lots of whiz bangs, but the substantive functionality has seemed rather limited.

 

With regard to versions, I was merely wondering what my options were in terms of managing the change over - whether I could get to grip with any issues by running v6.2.2 on my xp machine to reduce the number of elements of change that I have to manage at once.

 

I gather from the way you put it that references to v6.2 are to v6.2.2, and that that version is produced by Aceeca (their website is currently down).

Re: Palm Desktop 4.2 with Windows 10 - Hotsync problem

Finally, success with Hotsync Palm Destop 6.2.2 on Windows10

 

I get a 100% success rate on my  notebook (Samsung NP500P4C, core i7, 6 GB RAM)  with windows10:

 

It was so simple, thus so hard to find out:

 

 - NEVER SYNC WHILE PALM DESKTOP IS RUNNING!

      * I used to get random results, from no syncing at all to duplicating entries on Datebook;

 - Always check that Hotsync Manager is running - mine usually shuts down after I close Palm Desktop;

 

This works for me 100% of the time now.

 - Best practice: run Hotsync 1st thing after you start your computer, BEFORE OPENING PALM DESKTOP

 

Hope that helps you guys out there.

How do I sync my Palm (Handspring unit) in WIN10?
