Can someone point me to a detailed explanation as to how I can install hotsync software on user accounts that don't have administrator privileges?
In this envrionment the users are using XP professional, logging into a domain where the accounts are maintained on an NT server (soon to switch to 2003) and their mail accounts are maintained on an Exhcange server.
The palm desktop will not install as a user. When installed as an admin it won't sync when logging back in as that user. Palm support sent an email saying to install the package with elevated privileges. I'm not sure what that means. I would think there is a detailed How To somewhere that explains this very common situation but I can't seem to find it.

Re: hotsync with XP Pro and Exchange
Good question - how to elevate your rights for a particular user.
Your administrator needs to log you in under your username and temporarily grant you the rights to install software, install a driver and to write to the registry. The rights need to be left active thru the time that you perform your first HotSync operation, as this is the moment when the driver is activated (the registry entries geet written when a driver is 'enumerated').

If you have forgotten your password, if you have another user account with
administrative privileges you can log into that account and change your
original user account's password from the User Accounts applet in Control
Panel. If you don't have another account like this set up or don't have the
password to it, you'll need to log into the built-in Administrator account.
In XP Home, boot the computer into Safe Mode. Do this by repeatedly tapping
the F8 key as the computer is starting up. This will get you to the right
menu. Navigate using your Up arrow key; the mouse will not work here. Once
in Safe Mode, you will see the normally hidden Administrator account. The
default password is a blank.
In XP Pro, you do not need to go into Safe Mode. At the Welcome Screen, do
Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to get the classic Windows logon box. Type in
"Administrator" and whatever password you assigned when you set up Windows.
To change the built-in Administrator account in XP Pro if you can log into
another account with administrative privileges reset the password in the
Local Users and Groups snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC):
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type "mmc" (without the quotation marks), and then click
OK to start MMC.
3. Start the Local Users and Groups snap-in.
4. Under Console Root, expand "Local Users and Groups", and then click
5. In the right pane, right-click Administrator, and then click Set
6. Click Proceed in the message box that appears.
7. Type and confirm the new password in the appropriate boxes, and then
If you reset the built-in Administrator account's password in Home or have
Pro and don't remember the password, use NTpasswd to change the built-in
Administrator account's password to a blank.
To delete a user profile paassword do the following: 1. Click start 2. Click Control Panel 3. User profiles/Accounts 4. Find the user account you want to change and change the password
-- FYI to change another user account password for someone else you must have admin privelages on the computer
- To change your own password hit: Cntrl-Alt-Delete and choose change password option. - If you are unable to change your own password and you have an XP machine then you will eed Wintel System Commander to change a admin password. This software is paid software.
Dear Toda ;]
Get an anti virus for palm os and run it, then reload the palm software.
another thing to try that worked on a different device is to rename the Back-up folder to Old-Back or some other name. Do a hotsync. This usually works.
Then open your old-back folder and install the programs and data to the handheld. Then do a final hot sync.
Hope this helps.
Outlook Express - no software included with Palm devices but There is third-party software to synchronize the email and Windows Address Book from Outlook Express to Palm OS devices.

You may have tried Exchange ActiveSync in VersaMail
When you setup an Exchange ActiveSync account in VersaMail, you are asking your Treo to synchronize email and your calendar with an Exchance 2003 server. In order to prevent duplicates, VersaMail disables Calendar synchronization via HotSync while the account exists on your Treo.
So if you are an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) user, you have a choice; you either sync wirelessly or you can delete the EAS account in VersaMail and can then sync your Calendar via HotSync. You cannot do both unfortunately.
I was tring all the possible ways to resolve the issue. At last got a solution for my problem. Hope this will work for you all. Download the "OutlookConduitUpdater.zip" and install. This will resolve the calender "do nothing" while sync.
yes I moved my files to a new machine and reinstalled palm
(which of course also created the dreaded multiple copies of many palm contacts, when palm discovered older archives, but that is another story!) I wouldn't mind that if the palm pilot would just sync with outlook 2003. It synched with Outlook 2000 on my old machine.
Have you setup an EAS account in VersaMail?
The VersaMail application on your Treo 650 supports Exchange ActiveSync, which allows synchronization of Email and Calendar wirelessly with Exchange Server 2003. If an EAS account exists on the handheld the Calendar conduit will disable itself to avoid duplicates.
Go to VersaMail on your Treo650
Select Menu: Accounts: Account Setup
Check to see if any EAS accounts exist on the device by selecting and account, then Edit...
One the first screen check Mail Service. Do any of them say "Exchange Activ..."
If yes you'll need to delete that account to sync calendar entries.
