The only thing I can find that I think it might be is that this laptop is telling me that this copy of Windows might not be genuine. This is not my computer. I am setting this up as a favor for a friend.
Is there any way that validating the copy of Windows will help this work?
I have windows xp pro. Activesync 4.2. Glofiish X500 (PocketPC Phone).
It will not connect. The error message is this:
"ActiveSync cannot connect to the Windows Mobile powered device. To troubleshoot the problem, click OK."
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I have tried the beta version (4.5). I have configured Norton Firewall exactly as shown on Windows website. I have even tried disabling Norton altogether. Still nothing works.
The maddening thing is that it is recognized as a PDA with Windows Mobile 5.0 on it, yet ActiveSync still will not connect with it.
