An update for Windows Mobile Device Center for Windows Vista is coming soon - not soon enough

If you have a Windows Mobile device and you are running Windows XP then you probably still have ActiveSync. You don't know how lucky you are. Even though ActiveSync 4.x introduced some "features" (such as removal of network synchronisation and firewall problems), it is still a bit better than WMDC on Windows Vista.

For example, this is the kind of self-explanatory message I received before:


This is not as bad as what Ed Hansberry has experienced though...

Fear nothing for a NEW version is coming out soon, according to the official Windows Vista Blog. Which is not early enough...

You see, this first version of WMDC causes so much problems that I plug my Palm Treo to my laptop once a month, or less, depending if I need to install a new program. I am glad all of my PIM data (Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, E-mail) is synchronised to an Exchange Server, so I don't really need to plug the device. There was a time only one in four attempts would actually see the device communicating with my laptop.

Sharing this view are James Kendrick (a Microsoft MVP Tablet) and Darius Wei (like myself a Microsoft MVP Windows Mobile). I am sure Ed Hansberry will be happy, as others who also have problems and are crying for an update...
