      I discovered yesterday that, while Palm has recently come out with a Vista version of its desktop software, it has no plans for 64 bit support. I did install the 32 bit desktop software, and am trying to make network synchronization work since the USB driver doesn’t.

      Maybe when MS gets USB functionality working in Hyper-V I can use my XP or Vista VM for this.

      Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 doesn’t support USB yet, so maybe you have to switch to VMWare Player and use this tutorial to create a Windows XP client!

      Hope this solves your problem for now! 🙂

      I’ve got network synchronization working now, so that’s good enough. The Palm Desktop program for Vista is a little squirrely, so that’s where my problem was.

      I guess the fact that Palm is not interested in 64 bit drivers is not a good sign for their (Palm’s) future.

      Hope/guess they are working on x64 Vista drivers but it’s a slow process because the drivers also have to be verified in order to be signed at Microsoft. 64bit is the future so all hardware companies are forced to create Vista/Server 2008 x64 drivers. :geek:
