Activesync 4.x (upgrade from 3.8) problem with imate SP5m
I had the Sp3i & Qtek2020 synced with activesync 3.8 till a few days ago just fine. I recently got the excellent Sp5m which required AS 4.0, so I upgraded my installation to 4.0.3434 . My previous devices connect just fine. When I try to sync the sp5m I get the:
" This version of MS Activesync is not compatible with the connected mobile device. Please upgrade to the latest version of MS Activesync" and since I already have v4.0 it switches to the new interface, saying Connected as a Guest. but no communication with the sp5m whatsoever. I tried upgrading to version 4807 (4.1?) but same problem exists. I get the same connection error when trying to sync with bluetooth too which is weird.
I installed activesync 4.0 plain to another PC with no Office & no activesync but with the same antivirus/firewall etc, and the Sp5m connected just fine with no problems, which is an indication that its not a firewall/antivirus problem.
Any ideas how I can fix this appart from waiting for Microsoft to switch from beta to normal?
Thanx in advance
