Synchronising with Outlook 2007

Help! I have an Ipaq 1940 and used to synchronise with Outlook 2003, but have upgraded to Outlook 2007 and now cannot use ActiveSync for my calendar, etc. (Message says "attention needed"). What can I do?

Re: Synchronising with Outlook 2007

Older versions of ActiveSync do not work with Outlook 2007. You'll need to download ActiveSync 4.5 here:

It should work fine once you get the newest version.

Window Vista syncronizing with iPAQ 3835 problem

In order to sync any iPAQ with Windows Vista, you will need to download and install Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 from

Activesync will only work for XP Operating Systems and earlier.
  • To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
  • You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
  • You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
  • You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.

Tx will no longer sync with outlook 2003 or outlook 2007 calendars. Software reinstalled, tx reset, latest updates for syncing with outlook 03 and outlook 07 loaded, still won't sync to outlook calendar...

I would recommend contact the palm free chat. Here is a link for that. I have a TX and have used the chat feature myself and always with good results. Scroll to the bottom of the page and then you will see Palm chat. From there click on chat now and follow the directions. Best wishes.

My HP 6515 is staying on a blank white screen after being turn on

Hello ,

Because the iPAQ is not booting up you wont be able to back up any data .

You can uninstall and re-install the Active Sync 4.5 from . Try synchronising . No go then try updating BIOS from the same link If unable to do so please reply back with the iPAQ serial number (s/n) and product number (p/n).

Or first do a Soft Reset ( will not wipe off data ) by clicking on the link below :
If still no go then go to Hard / Clean reset as in second part of teh above link. It will wipe off the entire data though.

Still no go , please refer to the nearest authorised service centre .

Regards ,

Ipaq 4100 problem syncronizing with outlook on new laptop

you are now using outlook 2003 , probably cache , this means all the email is on your laptop. when you sync it will sync all the email (thousands). initialise your ppc (back to factory default). set up the sync via usb cable. then sync via bluetooth . then you are fully sync. now setup an auto backup of your email data (daily). if after some time , you have sync problem again , initialise the ppc, restore from backup and you are back to sync (last full backup). try this , you will never need to do it all again.

The factory-stock 1940, which uses Windows Mobile 2003, doesn't offer landscape mode.

You can get a 3rd party program called Nyditot Virtual Display that will let you use the 1940 in landscape mode, but I've used it before, and although it works, the problems it creates are not worth it. Besides, that program's not free.

Adobe offers a pdf reader for free that let's you read pdf files in landscape mode.

Outlook 2002 Reinstallation

The default e-mail client on pocketPC 2003 is the "inbox" which is merly a utility for retreiving & sending e-mail. There is no "outlook 2002" on pocket PC's. The Outlook 2002 installation cd comes with most iPaqs and is intended for your pc, not your ipaq.

Contents of outlook

No, an install of OUTLOOK over OUTLOOK data will NOT lose the data. However... you may want to backup the files first ?? What version of OUTLOOK are you currently running ? If it's already 2002, I might be tempted to ignore this message.
