Its been a while since I converted from XP to Vista, but when I copied
all my XP Palm software to my new Vista PC, I put everything I used in
the same directory structure that was on my XP machine. I had to do
two things, 1st I had to set some pointer to the correct work/archive
directory, and run Hotsysnc and set a new Comm port for the USB cable
to connect to my Palm T|X. *Do not* set Hotsync to run as Administrator.
I'm pretty certain thats all I had to reset.
Are you running Hotsync from: C:\Program Files\Palm\ or C:\Palm
I believe, but am not sure, that the problem is the permissions that
are set (and have to be that way) on the "Program Files" directory,
that is if you are running from the PF directory.
