Windows 7: Microsoft ActiveSync missing in Win7?

Microsoft ActiveSync missing in Win7?

I can't seem to find ActiveSync anywhere under my Win7 folders.
Normally, it's a pre-installed software that comes with Operating system.

Thanks!!

Is this what you are referring to?

As far as I know, that program does not come pre-installed on Windows 7.

You'd want Windows Mobile Device Center I think.

Yes, the program is not installed by default, however this post can help you get all the answers and shed some light on the smaller issues with WMDC: Enable ActiveSync & Windows Mobile Device Center Synchronization on Windows 7 x64 and x86

Win 7 with Windows Mobile is pretty straight forward.

1) Plug the USB cable in with phone powered up in USB mode Activesync
2) Should install driver by itself.
3) Be patient and after a short time you should get a message that the Windows Mobile Device manager is installing.

Done

If that does not work then something else is wrong so follow the tutorial above for WMDC

One thing to watch out for here. WMDC may very likely install the 32-bit version of the Device Center even when running on 64-Bit Windows7. Rather than plugging in your WM device and letting it download the drivers I suggest installing the 64-bit drivers first, then plug in your device.

Back in November I had issues with this - the wrong version got installed by default. This eventually led to a destabilized system and I had to rebuild my machine to correct the problem. Even after removing WMDC from my system there was a remnant left somewhere which rendered Explorer unstable. Since re-loading I have not used WM (got an iPod touch) so have not had this problem again.
