HTC PPC-6800 Vista driver and/or WMDC install problem

I just plugged my phone into my windows Vista Home Basic box. Windows Vista pops up the installing new device hardware box as usual. Windows then tells me it was unable to install the device driver's. Then a box pops up that shows you that it tried to locate a driver and was unsuccessful. In the box it shows the icon and the name WMDC. I can only click OK. So I searched on MWU center and found the WMDC download page where I downloaded drvupdate-x86 and proceed to run file. Installer comes up with the following message.

Windows Mobile Device Center Driver Update
The update could not be installed because at least one Windows component requires by Windows Mobile Device Center is missing.


So my question is how do I get WMDC so I can active sync my PPC-6800 to my vista box?

You can email me at to insure I get this help at

How can I Connect my HTC p3400i with my laptop

with an USB-miniUSB cable torught active sinc ( windows XP ) or Sync Center (windows vista and windows 7). The main problem is that you need to install the windows mobile device center. On XP is easy ... insert the disc in youre CD drive and install the software. In Visla you will have to download the Windows Mobile Device Center from microsofts download center ( requires windows authentification and if youre windows is not licensed you will fail to authentificate and so to download the WMDC ) i will make a upload with the WMDC on filefactory so you could install it safely. Works in Vista 7 and XP but in XP you have to install ActiveSync first ( from the CD witch came with the phone.. if i remember right it's the "Getting Started" disc ) this is where you can download the WMDC for PDAs
