How do I HotSync a Palm Vx with Outlook 2002

I want to HotSync my Palm Vx using OS 3.5.3 with Outlook 2002 running in Windows XP. I only have the Palm IIIc CDROM but I have downloaded and installed Palm Desktop Software 4.1.4 and the latest Conduit Updater.

Re: How do I HotSync a Palm Vx with Outlook 2002

I wish I had found you two weeks ago! That help, though simple, was fantastic - thank you. I had no idea that Pocket Mirror was on the CDROM as it was set on autostart so it launched into the Palm Software installation straight-off. I've got a few problems to sort out with it but so far it has Sync'ed the: Addresses To Do Email not yet read Calendar ** It insists on spending a very long time thinking about 'backing-up' the handheld databases and I have to force it to close. Any ideas how to solve that little problem? I'm just about to leave for Paris so I can't pursue this anymore today, so if I may I'll follow-up at the end of the week. Meanwhile thank you for your quick response and excellent instructions. Regards

You'll need a softwre like Chapura PocketMirror that you probably have on your IIIc CD-ROM

Windows XP, Palm m130, & Outlook 2003 - Sync problem


It sounds like the computer is noticing the USB activity (from when you hit the HotSync button) but for some reason it can't find the correct information/driver. I'd first try a soft reset (stick a paper clip or the end of your stylus may screw off to reveal a pin, in the hole at the back of your palm) Don't worry, it won't delete your info UNLESS YOU HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON (SO DON'T). Once it's booted back up, try the hotsync again. If that doesn't work, you may need to find the usb driver for your palm and reinstall it. This could just be copying a file from disc, or reloading your Palm Software. Good luck

I believe you will have no problems. HotSync talks to the Outlook client rather than the server.

Can't synch Outlook Calendar Appointments


Try uninstalling with Windows Uninstall Clean-up tool. XP seems to do a poor job of installing conduits sometimes. I think this might be an issue with the one conduit no being registered correctly in the Windows Registry. You can get this tool here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=290301 Uninstall Palm Desktop. Then shut down the PC. Then start it up again and re-install Palm Desktop. I hope this helps.

Hot sync error 8001 with MS outlook


Answers on Chapura PocketMirror errors, Chapura maintains a really good database of fixes for errors with their PocketMirror Outlook PIM conduits. Copied from the site: First, make sure you are running the latest version of PocketMirror version 3.1.7. To check which version you are currently running, please see Chapura FAQ PM089. If you are still receiving the same error after installing the latest version of PocketMirror then continue with the following steps. If Option 1 does not resolve the issue, then move onto Option 2 and so on: Option 1: Run the Outlook 2000/2002/2003 "Detect and Repair" utility (You will need the Office/Outlook CD-ROM). 1. In Outlook click "Help/Detect and Repair". 2. After the repair is complete, reboot your computer and synchronize your handheld. Option 2: If you are running Windows XP and this error is occurring, please perform the steps in Chapura FAQ PM198. Option 3: If this OLE error occurs ONLY when synchronizing with Outlook closed, then please see Chapura FAQ PM053 "Outlook Backup Add-in causes HotSync failure when Outlook is closed." Option 4: If you have a laptop computer and are running Windows 2000/Outlook 2000, this OLE error may be caused if your laptop goes into sleep/hibernate mode when Outlook is open. To fix this problem reboot your computer and try to synchronize your handheld again. In the future make sure Outlook is closed when your computer "hibernates". Option 5: Uninstall and reinstall 3rd party conduits such as the TakeNote, DayNotez, PocketQuicken, QuickWord, Quicksheet, etc. To check for these conduits: 1. Click on the HotSync Manager icon (circular red/blue arrows on the bottom right of your PC screen, see image.) Note: The HotSync Manager icon may be hidden on Windows XP, please click the round white arrow button (see image) to unhide the icon. HotSync Manager Icon Example 2. Click on "Custom". If you see any of the above mentioned program conduits listed in the "Custom" screen ABOVE the PocketMirror conduits (Outlook Calendar, Outlook Contacts, Outlook Tasks & Outlook Notes) then uninstall any of these 3rd party programs. To do this go to "Start/Settings/Control Panel" or "Start/Control Panel" and double-click on Add/Remove programs. Then reinstall these programs from the original source media. Option 6: If you are using Outlook 98/2000, please follow the steps in Chapura FAQ PM108 "How do I change Outlook from "Internet Only" to "Corporate/Workgroup" Mode?"

How do I NOT HotSync with Outlook?


Insert the installation CD and select Change your synchronization method. If that doesn't work, or the option is not available, in Windows, click Start>Run then D:\English\PostInstall\OutlookSwitcher.exe /palm (where D: is your CD drive AND your install CD is inserted; also check to make sure the file is at that location).

You never mentioned your drivers, they could be out of whack. Try updating them or get a Microsoft compatible driver. Check the device manager for problems.

How do I update my palm with outlook???


1. make sure Outlook is running on the PC 2. make sure hotsync is running - right click on the hotsync icon in the system tray - click custom - set all the things you "want" to sync and setup the way you want them (i.e. handheld over rides PC, they both sync, etc) 3. have VersaMail configured and setup as well...that's where your Outlook mail will come from 4. Push the hotsync button on your cable/cradle This should get you started. If I missed a step, it should be obvious in the Hotsync log, so check the log after doing a Hotsync.
