Windows 7: Windows Mobile Device Centre not responding to new phone.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Windows Mobile Device Centre not responding to new phone.

I offer this post in the hope that it may help others in the same situation.

I had WMDC working well with my TYTN (HTC Hermes) but, having moved to an HTC Touch Pro 2, I found that the connecting and syncing was very unreliable. Two days ago WMDC started saying "error" instead of connecting to my phone.

I uninstalled WMDC, and then reinstalled 3 or 4 times - no go. I read everything I could on the issue (and there is plenty of it ) in this forum, and other places. After several frustrating hours, I hit the jackpot - I am only sorry I cannot remember where.

I uninstalled WMDC and WMDC update with Revo uninstaller, and reinstalled them - bingo :)! It is reasonably clear to me that Revo does a better job at cleaning out registry entries than Windows uninstaller, certainly in this case. I was so grateful to Revo that I bought the package (special offer at the moment).

I sincerely hope this helps other searchers for a solution to this problem.

Whether I stick with a Windows phone, long term, is a different issue!

Windows uninstaller only does what the program's uninstaller tells it to do.
I liked the older uninstalls where you could manually select every single component of a program and remove it completely.

Glad you fixed your problem.
