Hello Vosberg,

I'm not sure if this is the same as what you are wanting, but I hope that it may help.

Windows Mobility Center - Enable on Desktop Computer

and

Windows Mobility Center - Open and Use

Hmmm....everything in his post points to Windows Mobile Device Center. Seems to be some confusion in the name of the issue

@ Vosberg, Is it Windows Mobile Device Center, or Windows Mobility Center???

Thanks

OK, yet another update. When i went to install the driver mentioned above, i found out that the driver is for the 64 bit Windows, and here i have the 32 bit installed on this laptop. I guess i thought that this was going to be any easy fix, but, i guess i was proven wrong. From the E-mail from Microsoft i got to contact their Tech Support, and here is where the fun comes in. I will be out of town for the next few days, so i will have to pick up this ball on Monday when i get back. In the mean time, double, or triple kudos to anyone that came maybe come up with any ideas of what to do. I was hoping to use the Device Center before i left, cause i have to update the phone, but, well that fell threw as well. Alwell, got to quit complaining, and just let things be! Well, have a great day, and as likewise, thanks for all of the ideas, it has not been unnoticed.

Oh, and Brink, the issue is not the Windows Mobility Center, but the Device Manager. This is the Active Sync for the newer version of Windows. But thanks for the input.

Vosberg1,

I don't think you're reading our replies. It's been mentioned by me earlier that you needed to make sure you got the correct version for your OS....

You were also asked to clarify the problem you’re having….

"Device Manager" is not the "Active Sync for the newer version of Windows" This is the "Device Manger"...

The Device Manager is a Control Panel applet in Windows. It allows users to view and control hardware attached to the computer. Which has very little to do with Active Sync or Windows Mobile Device Center.

Something you also need to be aware of, "Active Sync" does not/will not work on Vista or Windows 7, that's why you need Windows Mobile Device Center.

XP = Active Sync
Vista/Win 7 = Windows Mobile Device Center

We can’t help you if you won’t answer our questions, or read and acknowledge our replies. Based on your last few posts, I believe we fixed your problem; you just needed to read them.

Just trying to help.

Later.

OK, i had some confusion with the NAME of the problem, but not of the logistics fo the problem. I appoligize for the confusion. It is the Device Center that i am having issues with, and, if the post have followed, i am still having issues trying to install it, but just to reinterate, (so everything is here in correct termanloigy)

1. Downloaded Moblile Device Center.
2. Attmpted to install - error - Windows Compont is missing
3. Attempted to run Device Center in comapt mode with Vista.
4. Concated Microsoft - they sent me the email that is posted in one of the posts.
5. Attempted to use the driver - it turns out to be supported with ONLY 64 bit 7 - mine is 32 bit.

That is it in a nutshell.

Thanks again for the help.

To reiterate what I said....

You need to download the 32-bit version of Windows Mobile Device Center!!! NOT THE 64-BIT!!!

Download details: Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 for Windows Vista (32-bit). I know the download link says Vista, but this WILL also work under Windows 7 (Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 | Windows Vista Support). And this does not need to be installed in compatibility mode!

If you're trying to install the 64-bit version on your 32-bit OS (Windows) you're going to have problems!!!

Please read the posts instead of just looking at them.

OK, i hope to clear up the confusion, i have downloaded the 32 bit Device Center, and that is what i am trying to install. The driver that Microsoft pointed me to to try to resolve this issue is the thing that is 64 bit. Sorry about the confusion. I hope to try to resolve this problem soon.

Oh, here is the final update - i finally got the Device Center installed, there was a install pack that also included Microsoft Media Player. I had to do many call to Microsoft, and then, out of frustraition i again Googled "Window Compont Missing" and found a link to pack that i needed to install. (i will post it later). But just wanted everyone to know that this issue is resolved.

Hope that durring this i did not sound like a jerk, i took all advice serious, but when there was alot of "dedlock, both with Microsoft, and with Seven Fourums, i was getting very frustrated.

Thanks again,
