name your device - this device name is already in use

    I have a PPC (iPAQ). Yesterday it hung. Nothing worked including the phone
    until I removed the battery.

    I had the battery disconnected for about 1.5 seconds. But when I plugged it
    back it, it acted like it had done a hard reset (forcing me to re set up
    everything)

    Now when I try to reconnect it to my computer, when it comes to "Name your
    device" I get a "This device name is already in use". How do I get Activesync
    to re-set up the Standard partnership that it used to have with this PPC?

    Raj,
    I have precisely the problem you've described on the referenced website,
    i.e. "device name not unique" trying to reinstall activesync on my work pc.
    I would like to keep the Device ID the same as used at home "ToshibaMaestro".
    I'm having to re-install at work as my "profile" name was changed.

    Suggested fixes don't work for me. 1. Activesync shows no partnerships to
    delete (grayed out). There are no backup files (*.stg) on my local drive.

    I've also searched for file repl.dat, without success. In fact, I don't
    find the path: Documents and Settings\"username"\application data.

    Still the device ID is considered non-unique. Any suggestions?

    tnx,
    David

    Hi David,

    * Did you try searching for your folder name on the desktop?
    * Which device are you using?
    * Which version of activesync are you using?
