    I have a T-Mobile Vario3 (HTC Tytn2) running Windows Mobile 6.1 and a
    HTC HD2 running Windows Mobile 6.5, when I connect via USB to my WIndows
    7 Ultimate 64bit PC, Windows Mobile Device Centre will launch
    automatically when I connect the 6.1 mobile but not when I connect the
    6.5 mobile, however it does auto-sync as I have added items to my
    calendar an it syncs Ok even though it hasn't launched the program.

    if i connect to a XP machine they will both launch Activesync OK.

    I am not sure if this is a Windows Mobile 6.5 problem, a HTC HD2
    problem, or a Windows 7 proble, has anyone else had the same problem and
    managed to fix it?

    Not sure how to phrase this, but there isn't anything wrong. You have
    actually realized this by noting that your 6.5 device syncs, even though
    WMDC doesn't 'launch'. Actually the interface doesn't come up. It actually
    launches, and you likely hear the USB connect and sync connect sounds. Both
    my 6.5 & 6.1 device does the same, connect with no UI launching. (Win 7
    Ultimate, 64b). So I guess your 6.1 device is broken ;) If you look in the
    options of AS, I bet you find a an option to either start the interface or
    not. I recall that in early versions at least. I have looked and can't find
    a similar option in WMDC, and I can't explain why one opens WMDC and one
    doesn't. Personally I prefer it not openning, because once set up, I really
    don't need it taking up space. I can access the device straight from file
    explorer if I need to, and I can bring WMDC up if I need to change a
    parameter. The 6.1 device does retain a partnership, right? It is not
    asking to set up each time is it? On first connect, or connecting a device
    that isn't partnered with a PC, WMDC is supposed to come up and provide the
    sync, or just connect, option.

    That sounds right then, I don't have the 6.1 as a partnership with the
    PC as it is a replaced device, so that is why it launches WMDC? that
    makes sense now, I just wish there was an option to launch or not, but
    thanks for clearing that up.

    Thanks again
