Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

Palm does not support Windows Vista 64

I have a Palm Centro Smartphone. I upgraded to a new Dell desktop which came with Windows Vista. I tired to install the software for my phone and it would not run. It seems that Palm does not support Vista 64 (ridiculous) so I am told that if my desktop does not have bluetooth (it doesn't) I need to purchase a dongle to sync my phone to my computer. Is there any other fix?

Copy Contacts from Palm Centro to SIM Card


When I migrated from my Palm Centro (best smartphone ever) to my current BlackBerry, I did the following: 1) Export Palm contacts from the Palm Desktop software to CSV (comma separated values or tab-delimited text) format. 2) Import the CSV file to your Google Contacts account. 3) Wirelessly sync Google Contacts to your new phone using the free Google Sync app (link below). 4) Verify data was transferred appropriately.
Google Sync details: http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/
You should be able to follow the same process for your Palm Calendar by exporting your Palm Calendar from the Palm Desktop software to a file (save the exported file to your desktop, or an easy to find location on your computer), then import the Calendar file into a NEW Google Calendar, not your primary calendar (in case there's conflicts or problems, you can delete the secondary Google calendar without losing your primary Google calendar items). Google Sync should allow you to choose more than one Google Calendar to sync with your new phone.

How to sync Palm T3 to (Dell) 64 bit laptop via Bluetooth


if you are using 64 Bit operating system you may use following procedure
1) Start > Run > msiexec /unregister
2) In regedit, find the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer
3) Change MsiExecCA64
From this: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe
To this: C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\msiexec.exe
(This assumes a default Windows directory.
Change to reflect your configuration if needed.)
4) Restart the Windows Installer service
(Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services)
5) Install Palm Desktop!
To go back to the previous settings, just reverse the change made in the registry, and stop/start the service again.
You can also set it back to normal by re-registering the installer:
Start > Run > msiexec /unregister
Start > Run > msiexec /register

Error in Palm Desktop on PC


You need version Palm desktop v6.2 (not v4) to run under Vista. If you have the 64 bit version of Vista you will have to use Bluetooth to transfer data, not USB. Enjoy and please rate this post.

Won't load documents to go therefore I can't transfer documents


Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

USB Device Not Recognized for Palm Treo 680


if you are using Vista ultimate, it is a 64 bit operating system and therefore palm doesn't have official support for it yet, but someone has found a solution:
