Complete uninstall of palm desktop?

I have a kyocera 7135 and just purchased a treo 650. I installed the palm desktop for 650 but it is failing to sync with my phone, I contacted palmone and they stated that the issue is with the kyocera branded palm desktop and I need to uninstall it. They would not assist me in uninstalling it. I just want to start fresh, does anyone have a walkthru on how to completely uninstall palm software from your computer? I'm talking about support files/folders and registry keys Thanks

Re: complete uninstall of palm desktop?

How I uninstalled Palm Desktop for the 7135: Suggest this step: 1) Find your Palm files, all of them, most likely /Program Files/Palm, and make a copy of the folder, call it Palm Backup. That should leave all of your existing information as is, just in case 2) Using the control panel, find and remove Palm Desktop (Start, Control Panel, Add/Remove Applications) 3) Suggest you optionally reboot. 4) Now do the install of your new Palm Treo 650 software. This is what I did, and all is well. I had different problems when I decided to go back to my 7135. Seems that using the same techniques does NOT remove the PalmOne software, lots of residual modules, and even if I did a delete of the entire Palm directory, there must be links everywhere. The 650 has extraordinary capabilities, but in the end, I went back to my 7135.

I am using Windows 7 and want to Hotsync my 1000s of Memo Notes from My Palm Treo 650, I got the latest Palm Desktop and Hotsync Manager but My Computer cannot Hotsync or even detet my Treo 650....Pls...


Palm Desktop compatibility with Windows 7 and 64-bit editions Palm Desktop 6.2 was designed for 32-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. You may be able to use this software with other versions of Windows.
Windows 7: Many users have successfully installed and used Palm Desktop 6.2 with Windows 7. Palm has not done thorough testing with a range of third-party equipment running Windows 7, therefore Palm cannot guarantee compatibility.
64-bit editions of Windows: USB HotSync is not supported. Instead, synchronize through a Bluetooth wireless connection: set up Bluetooth HotSync.

All you need to do is install palm desktop. This should have been included with the CD in your package. If for some funny reason it is not, go to here.

But don't forget to plug in the USB/Serial cable (whichever you prefer to use), then, select USB or serial after installing palm desktop (just right click the HotSync manager and if your choice isn't selected, go ahead and do so).

Hope this helps!

Pls help me for power on fail


If your Treo loops or freezes during a soft reset, a system reset may help. Performing a system reset allows you to get out of an endless loop in order to uninstall a third-party application causing the looping: 1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward to remove it from your Treo. 2. While pressing and holding Up , use the tip of the stylus to gently press the reset button on the back of your Treo. 3. When the Palm Powered logo appears, release Up . 4. Delete the third-party application that you suspect is causing the problem. 5. Perform a soft reset. The wireless features of your phone are not available until you complete this step. Good luck!

Original sync worked all others failed with 650 and Outlook 2003


I was ready to give up completely. Uninstalled, reinstalled, nothing worked. Here is what I did to resolve sync errors: 1. Perform a hard reset on the Palm 2. Go to the Palmone folder on your hard drive (C:\Program Files|PalmOne. Look for the Backup folder. Rename this folder Backup Old. 3. Connect the Treo to your computer. 4. Right click the Hotsync icon in the taskbar and click Custom. Change the four Outlook conduits (Calendar, Contacts,Tasks,Memos) to Desktop overwrites Handheld. 5. Run a Hotsync with the Treo. It should sync without errors. If you need to install additional applications you can add them now. This worked for me. I hope it helps with your errors.

Synching treo 650 with 600


In a nutshell, make sure you have a recent synch to your PC of the 600. Install the Treo 650 desktop software Synch to the username of the 600 Your are done. You should rename the Treo 600 or hard reset it (you will get data corruption if you synch two devices with the same username to one PC). If you are paranoid, you can make a backup copy of your c:\program files\palm\ folder to begin with. This contains most of your settings and extra software on the 600. As you are an Outlook user, your personal data is probably in a PST file or it is stored in Exchange.

You can install and uninstall Palm Desktop without affecting the user data stored on your PC. That is one of the beauties of the Palm OS system. The uninstaller only removes what it installed - that does not include your data.

How do I handle error 0x80040702 Failed to load dll:HSAPI


Old version of Palm Desktop There appears to be a few versions of older Palm Desktop that the installer has problems overwriting. Did you have a Treo 300 or an older device perchance? A solution from Brighthand forums: "Error Number: 0x80040702 Description: Failed to load dll: HSAPI The problem appeared to be that I still had the older Palm desktop software (version 3.01) from my Palm V on my computer. Uninstalling the old software solved my problem. While this may be a bit obvious, I was surprised that the Treo 650 installation instructions had a section on upgrading from another palm device, but failed to mention that you need to uninstall the old software. " One reason that you run into this problem may be that you dont have sufficient rights to make registry changes on your PC (including one installer removing and older installation). Check with your IT Admin to ensure you can do what you are trying to do.
