I just found my old Zire 71 and placed the desktop software on the laptop 64 bit windows7 and of course no HOT SYNC. Just read the other site about this solution and downloaded the ACcea material. Now before I go any further, I had already tried from Palm and read about how 64 do not sync via cable. However, I had already uninstalled everything with Palm Zire 71 even the desktop software. Do I need to reinstall my CDs before going further with the ACCea driver material????? To me it makes since, but for now I must go and hope upon my return in about 30 minutes maybe an answer to carry on with this project. Sure would like to use this investment Zire 71. thanks for your help and quick reply!!!!


Palm Desktop must be installed before running the Aceeca patch.

Re: 64 Bit Windows USB drivers for Palm Desktop

I have a different Palm issue. I have a new win 8 / 64 laptop and want to cradle/usb to hotsynch T3 to new laptop. I have downloaded the aceeca 64bit drivers - and the hot synch works fine - It's the Desktop (4.1.2, 4.1.4, 6.2) etc that will NOT open - it will launch - just not open! Weird. I know it is 32 bit - but how do I get the desktop to launch, open and work - so the hotsych will marry up?

 

Your can see the device manage in palm is fine

Trying to launch as admin does nada

Compatibility does nada

reboot, uninstall, does nada

[ Edited ]

I too am posting a different Palm desktop issue here because it seems like this may be the last known Palm help thread.  Hope that is OK.  My problem could also relate to not having the right drivers.  I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. 

 

Previously I read about someone running Palm Desktop 4.1, the version that has the color codes, on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with no problem.  They didnt' have to run virtual XP to make it work.  So I upgraded my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit to Windows 7 Utimate 64 bit (this Windows upgrade can easily be accomplished for free:  do a search on google).   Now the color coded Palm Desktop v. 4.1 that I want runs perfect, all except for the alarm manager.  Even though I checked the box under TOOLS, OPTIONS, ALARMS for the alarm manager to  "always be available in the Startup folder", the alarm is only available and working when I have the Palm desktop application open; hence, I miss alarms if I don't have the Palm desktop application open.  Has anyone got any suggestions for keeping the alarm on the desktop open besides checking that box for making sure the alarm manager is always working in the startup folder?  Thank you for your help.

Re: 64 Bit Windows USB drivers for Palm Desktop

Folks, this thread has grown so large that it discourages new users from reading it in its entirety.

 

I'm going to close it now.  Any new questions about the Aceeca drivers, or using Palm Desktop with 64bit systems should be asked as a new question.

 

PalmOS rocks!  :-)
