WMDC 6.1 & Vista RC SP1, sync issue

    I have upgraded my Vista PC to SP1 RC to see if any of my previous issues
    with Vista are resolved yet. Some have been but now I am unable to sync my
    PDA with WMDC 6.1.

    When I plug my PDA the PC recognies that the device is plugged in and shows
    up as a Microsoft Network Adapater or words to that effect in Network
    Adapters section of Dev Mgr.

    However the PC does not recognise that the PDA is connected, USB is ok as
    the device is charging while connected.

    I have attached the PDA to my Vista Laptop which is not on SP1 and it works
    without issue.

    Both PC's have the same security software installed, namely Bitdefender 2008
    Internet Security and I have made no changes to specifically add ports into
    the firewall on the laptop and WMDC works fine. I removed WMDC from the Vista
    SP1 system and reinstalled it but there is no change.

    My brother is also having the exact same issue, I must conclude that
    something with SP1 RC is amiss.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue and found a workaround.

    I don't appear to have such an option on my WM5 PDA?

    If I go into Settings -> Connections the only icons I see are as follows:

    Network Cards
    Wireless Manager
    WLAN Tool

    I am stumped as I have the same issue with BLuetooth as well.

  3. Hi Robert,

    Can you confirm that you were able to successfully connect before installing
    SP1? The first public beta of SP1 contained a firewall issue that affecting
    device connectivity to WMDC. The most recent SP1 build contains the fix.
    Make sure you are up-to-date on your SP1 version.

    Hi Jane,

    I just noticed a refresh of the SP1 RC had been released, I will removed the
    current SP1 RC and install this one and retry.

    I can confirm that b efore Sp1 RC was installed I could successfully connect
    my WM5 device to WMDC.

    I'll let you know how I get on, it might be a couple of days until I can do
    this though.

    Hi Jane,

    Thanks for your help, I can confirm that the Sp1 Refresh has indeed resolved
    the issue. My WM5 PDA now connects again.

    Many thanks.
