It could be that one of the programs you are attempting to re-install is incompatible with WM6, or that the backup file (if you are using software other than A/S to reinstall your data) is corrupted in some way, though I'm not techy enough to know the ins and outs of this
If you have all your data backed up somewhere and haven't tried this already then uninstall Activsync from your pc and then delete the activsync folder from your program list:this folder contains the windows mobile drivers and would otherwise remained regardless of A/S being uninstalled. It worked for me when I couldn't get my Hermes to sync - though I've had no problems with the Athena (touch wood!)
Also have you tried on a different PC?
Thanks for your detailed suggestions:
I've narrowed the issue down to syncing the calendar -- sometimes tasks and contacts sync -- the rest seem OK. I've searched MS forums and KB for the Support Code 86000107 that continually pops up when I try to sync in AS 4.5 -- to no avail.
Yes, I'm using Activesync 4.5 in WinXP and the WMDC (latest) in Vista -- I have the same problem in both. And I have tried AS 4.5 in another computer running XP -- same issue. What is bothersome is that I did not have this problem when I had the shipped WM5 version that came on the Athena, only since I upgraded the rom to WM6.
I ended up trying to hard reset and see if that would eliminate the problem -- it did improve the syncing (before I couldn't get it to sync anything, just sat there searching) but now I have this problem with the calendar (skips right over the contacts, calendar and tasks -- then syncs the other items).
I did a scanpst to find and repair any errors in my outlook file (there were some). I removed AS, deleted the AS folder as you suggested, reinstalled -- no change.
At this point I'm baffled -- obviously the phone is only marginally useful so I'm going to switch back to my Hermes for the moment. I just don't know where to look for possible solutions -- maybe when the "official" WM6 rom for the Athena is released on Wednesday, that will be different??? But, since my problem seems to be unique to me, I doubt it.
Thanks again -- I appreciate you help. Any more suggestions are certainly welcome.
