"Windows Mobile Device Center Sync Host has stopped working" const

    Suddenly only a couple of days ago I have started receiving this error every
    single time I try to sync my PDA. It happens during the backup operation
    which apparently runs BEFORE my sync, so my PDA seems not to even by syncing
    anymore. If I don't click the "Close" button on the warning the backup
    operation will complete, but the sync never will.

    Also it locks up my Outlook store file, requiring me to restart before I can
    use it again.

    Any clues what's going on here and how to fix it?

    Nevermind. I found the solution.

    1. ) Locate the "WindowsMobile" folder (inside of the "Windows" folder)

    2.) Uninstall the following applications:
    A. ) Windows Mobile Device Center
    B. ) Windows Mobile Device Center Update

    3. ) Use the "Setup" file inside of the "WindowsMobile" folder to reinstall
    Windows Mobile Device Center

    4. ) Go to the www.microsoft.com to obtain the Windows Mobile Device Center
    Upgrade application. Install it, and you are back in business :)

    Take care,

    I actually did come up with a simpler solution. I simply ended the
    partnership and recreated it. Fixed the problem instantly.

    That's cool, but my method retains all partnerships and settings :)

    I have tried to un-install and re-install and nothing changes. Any other solutions?

  8. Uninstall/reinstall what? What device? What WinMo version? What software?

    Context is needed....
