    I can't get it to work. I've tried all I know to do and searched everywhere
    for a solution.

    I get the WMDC setup screen. If I click on "Connect without setting up your
    device", I can browse my Blackjack just fine.

    As soon as I click on "Setup Your Device" , I get an immediate popup
    saying"Windows Mobile Device Center Sync Host has stopped working" with a
    choice of close or debug.
    From that point on, the WMDC will not respond untill I terminate the sync
    host process or reboot.

    And yes I've got the latest version and tweaked the firewall and even turned
    firewall off. Uninstalled and reinstalled a dozen times.

    I did an upgrade to Vista so I suspect it has something to do with the
    leftovers from the previous installed Activesync in XP

    Here are the Event Viewer logs related to the WMDC crash.

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to
