WMDC & Cingular 2125

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Matthew McDermott, Nov 23, 2006.

  1. All,

    I got it working. After trying every other suggestion this is the
    combination that worked for me.

    I discovered that Windows Live One Care was shutting down the connection by
    setting my firewall to "restricted". I turned off my wireless, changed my
    firewall settings to NOT "Automatically change my firewall protection..." and
    everything started working.

    Specific steps...

    1) Download and install the beta

    2) Disconnect wireless and turn off the firewall
    3) Connect the phone with USB. Watch for security warnings and permit the
    app to run. (At this point I received a HUGE error message that the
    application stopped working "Exception trying to display the license
    4) Disconnect the phone and reconnect.
    5) Accept License agreement.
    6) WMDC opens and connects to phone.

    Complete synch.

    One additional note...I saw another post about setting up the phone for
    Exchange. That can be done through WDMC (but I would only do that if you NEED
    to be attached to your PC to synch, the preferred method is to have the phone
    synch directly through ActiveSynch connections.) Then only use the direct
    connection to synch Files, Media, and OneNotes.

    Now if I could only get the ROM update to work!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    I just noticed in my updates that there is are two updates for "Windows
    Mobile Device Center".

    Back to the turkey.

    What version number do you have for WMDC after the updates. Mine list as
    6.0..6526 but I don't think I have gotten any updates.

  4. Bill,,

    Same, 6526, maybe the beta couses it to appear to be updated...don't know.

    Did you try shutting down the firewall?
