Sync ACT activities wt Window Mobile Center on Window 7

Good morning everybody, 

 

I have been trying to SYNC my Act Activities on my PDA but it does not seem to synchronize. I moved on Window 7 recently, installed ACT for PDA, configured my Window Mobile center accordingly and still can not synchronize.

 

I don't get any errors message when I sync meaning that I should see my activities on my PDA, but unfortunately he does not show.

 

If any of you could help me, it would be much appreciated. It used to work on Vista & XP without any problems 

 

Thanks in advance 

 

 

I'm using :

 

 

  • Window 7 Ultimate 
  • Window Mobile Center
  • ACT! by Sage Premium 2009 (11.0) Version 11.1.

Re: Sync ACT activities wt Window Mobile Center on Window 7

Could it be because Windows 7 is no a supported OS for Act! 2009?

Thanks Scott !

 

Dont know but if someone could help with on that one, that would appreciated !

 

It worked well on Vista & XP ... but now wt Window 7 I had to synchronize my ACT events wt Outlook Calendar, but when I sync with Outlook ... I get all the alarms/remimders twice ! 

 

And plus, it makes not sense to work with 2 calendars, it's not efficient at all 

 

Any help, awnser would be appreciated

 

thanks

You'd probably need to upgrade to ACT! 2010 for full Windows 7 support.

 

As an alternative, you might try Handheld Contact (either Basic to the phone PIM or Professional to it's own database) - much more reliable as it doesn't use WMC

Hello sitour,

You may also want to verify that the syncing software that came with your PDA is compatible with Windows 7. In addition, make sure the issue is not with your ACT! database by setting up and testing sync with another ACT! database, such as the demo (ACT11Demo) or new database with a few dummy records in it.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

Hi,

 

Thanks Greig !

 

We're three in the office using ''remote ACT database'' and three of us are facing the same problem with Syncing ACT activities on Window 7. The sync software provided by Window 7 work great (Mobile Device Center) & I dont get any error message while syncing.

 

If anyone could help it would be great

 

And the question is : Using ACT 2009 can we sync with Window 7 ????

Hi Mike,

 

I am having the same issue as others with Windows 7 and the Palm incompatibility.

 

Can you recommend smart phones that will work with ACT and Windows 7?  I imagine they would have to be Windows based.  Yes?

 

Thanks,

 

Neil

Re: Sync ACT activities wt Window Mobile Center on Window 7

So, are you saying that ACT 2011 will sync using Windows Mobile in Windows 7 without having to use a wireless or third party utility?
