Hello RedQueen_1, not sure what you're asking.

 

Perhaps you are having to start Palm Desktop manually to perform a HotSync?  To fix this, be sure the HotSync Manager program is running before initiating a HotSync.

 

You should see the little red and blue icon in the tool tray when it's active.

What happens when you choose Start Button/Palm/Palm Desktop?

 

It sounds to me you may be clicking on the installation file for Palm Desktop instead of a shortcut to the program after it has been installed?

Re: 64 Bit Palm Desktop Drivers are HERE!

sorry been to bed & slept since I had any contact with you guys so cannot remember exactly what this was about.

 

I have an old Tungsten T3 that I would love to be able to use again.  I need to synch this with my 64bit Win7 G62 running Office 2007 so I can synch Office Outlook & Access files

 

Is this possible using the original installation disc?

No.

 

To sync your device, please read thru this thread and many others about the 64-bit Aceeca USB drivers.  You should use Palm Desktop 6.2.2 and will also need PalmHotsyncSetup from www.pimlicosoftware.com

 

The Palm Support site has Outlook conduits, but I doubt they'll work with Outlook 2007.  You could look into CompanionLink,  a possible third-party solution.

 

As for Office 2007 files, you would need to use the most recent version of Documents To Go for Palm.  Unfortunately, Dataviz no longer sells DTG for Palm.  If you have an older version of DTG, you can try saving your desktop documents as older versions of Word/Excel.  Unfortunately, the older versions of DTG are not compatible with Windows 7.

 

The only app I knew of to sync Access files with Palm devices was SmartList To Go.  It was also a Dataviz product.  It has also been abandonded by Dataviz and is no longer available for purchase.

What happened when you clicked on Start/Palm/Palm Desktop?  Did the program run correctly?

 

You can use that older version, but it will require a complete uninstall of the 6.2.2 version, and a reinstall of the Aceeca drivers.

 

I'm still a bit confused by your original problem.  Palm Desktop is an .exe file after it gets installed. You should get a shortcut to Palm Desktop installed...

Thanks for this.  Guess I'll just stick with Windows devices!
