Applies To:

  • Windows CE 2.0
  • Windows CE Services 2.x

Overview:

Users of Windows CE Services 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2 are unable to upgrade to Microsoft ActiveSync 3.x because compatibility with Schedule+ 7x was removed in ActiveSync 3.0.

Schedule+ is not compatible with Windows 2000 Professional.


Solution:

In order to Synchronise your Windows CE based Handheld PC you will need to upgrade your Personal Information Manager to Microsoft Outlook 98 or above. Support for Schedule+ was removed in ActiveSync version 3.0 and above.

Microsoft Outlook can be purchased as a stand-alone product or as part of Microsoft Office. HPC Factor recommends users purchase the latest version of Outlook in order to benefit from the features and security that it brings. Purchasing the full version of Outlook ensures that you have technical support for a current and updated product. Security flaws will be patched and your personal information will remain secure.

If you encounter an error stating that the allotted installation period for the program has expired. You must change the system date via Date & Time in the Windows Control Panel to June 1998. Once you have installed Outlook 98 you can safely restore the system date to the correct value.

Before you first run Outlook 98:
Installing Outlook 98 may devolve some of your Operating System components. It is important that you update your Internet Explorer components after the installation of Outlook.
Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 is recommended for Windows 98, Millennium, NT4.0, Windows 2000 & Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 recommended for Windows 95.
The installation of Outlook Express 6 should be considered mandatory as part of the Internet Explorer Upgrade as Outlook Express 4.0 is installed as part of Outlook 98. Outlook Express 4 is installed as the Outlook 98 News Reader client. It is not no longer a secure or supported program and as such should be upgraded to the latest version.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 and 6.0 SP1 can be downloaded from:
http://www.hpcfactor.com/downloads/

Depending on the installation options you choose Outlook 98 may install Microsoft NetMeeting 2.11. NetMeeting is now a retired product from Microsoft. Outlook 98 supports a certain level of integration with NetMeeting. If you wish to keep this integration you should uninstall NetMeeting 2.11 then download and install NetMeeting 3.01 SP2. Windows 2000 already has NetMeeting 3.01 installed and will not be overwritten by Outlook 98.
NetMeeting 3.01 SP3 can be downloaded from:

HPC Factor recommends the installation of Outlook over the use of Schedule+ and Windows CE Services. However we would suggest that purchasing the latest version of Outlook as a stand-alone product or as part of the latest Office version, as this will be supported, secure and is being updated.

Outlook will allow the import and conversion of Schedule+ files to Outlook PST files. For more information see Outlook Help.
