I have an HP IPAQ 4155 which I bought in about 2003. http://www.pdasupport.com/Ipaq4155.htm, it runs Windows Mobile 2003 and has Windows CE 4.2 embedded.
I use Windows XP Pro on my main computer and also Activesync 4.5 to sychronise the Pocket PC with MS Office 2007.

I want to upgrade to Windows 7 soon but have discovered that Activesync 4.5 will not run on Windows 7. http://www.microsoft...c-download.mspx

Meaning that I would need to use Windows Mobile Device Centre (WMDC). However, as I understand, WMDC will not be any good with my device! http://www.microsoft...r-download.mspx

Can anyone confirm this, or has anyone succesfully used WMDC with an old ipaq such as mine.

I love this device and would like to continue to use it, but this might be the final signal to dump it.
!!:D :D


Thanks

Dave

I have IPAQ 514, which runs well with WMDC and WIN7

But over and all, IPAQs look old and lost its way in current happenings of Android and WinPhone7 (upcoming)

well you are right the device is good,
but think it has been your friend for quite long time,
but i dont think you will get any support if any problem you want to solve in win 7 .

well good luck with a great device .
