i have noticed you cant install ActiveSync with Vista - it uses "Windows Mobile Device Manager"

this is causing a few problems because i cant install any apps to my Apache ? as it cant find activesync

any ideas ? apart from booting into XP

Havent used the new device manager. Not many apps these days that dont have an OTA install option - simply download the cab file, and run it locally on the device.

no problem at all :-)

Also saves having more crud installed on your PC that you dont actually need...

Only some software explicitly look for ActiveSync. Most just use a call to the installer service. I have a few Pocket PC around and none of the software I tried to install presented a problem and worked fine with Windows Vista and WMDC.

I found out that WMDC and Windows Lve One Care beta for Vista are not compatible. So i removed One Care and problem solved. Me, my Apache and Vista get along fine now.
