Default No luck with HTC Sync

After trying quite a LARGE number of different things to get several different versions of HTC sync to work I am still at square one.

I cannot for the life of me get my Desire to sync with my PC. This is nothing new I had the same problem with a Hero and after 6 months of trying with that gave up completely.

IS there any any to get HTC Sync to actually work?

Most of the time my Desire will show that it is in USB debug mode but will not ask about connection type and it most certainly doesn't even launch the sync app.

If it does launch the sync app it then shows disconnected.

If it detects the pc at all then it says htc sync cannot be detected.

I only evergot it to sync once on the day I got it and it buggered up all my contacts and calendars be triplicating or quadrupling items.

Any suggestions would be helpful as I am about to give up with the Desire and go back to my Touch Pro.

EDIT: Bythe way I have searched and none of the suggestions have worked one bit. And most are about Win7.
Current:
1 x HTC Desire | CM007 JB 4.2.2 A2Ext+ | S-OFF | HBoot: Stock | Radio: 32.56.00.32U_5.17.05.23

Retired:
1 x Raphael (Europe) (RETIRED) WM6.5 Energy 3.0 Photon ROM | Manila 2.1 VGA Final
1 x Typhoon (RETIRED) Aleut WM6.5 V1.0 ROM | Titanium
3 x Wizzard 200 (G4) (DEAD) XDA Mobile 6.1 Pro V5 Final ROM
2 x Alpine (RETIRED) Not Upgradable

I also gave up trying. Bought Gsyncit to sync contacts and notes. I use Google Calendar Sync. Never need to connect Desire to PC.

Well, you are not the only ones. I can't sync either.
I got it working on the very first day but not since then.

When I connect my Desire to PC and select the sync option HTC sync does not start at all and if I try to run it manually I get a message that the application is not installed correctly etc etc.
Tried reinstalling and rebooting several times... gave up in the end.

I sync my contacts and calendars with my Gmail account...

Add my name to the list.

Sync'd before I loaded the stock ROM but hasn't worked since.
I've spent far too many hours now trying to fix it.

I just sync OTA with google and use appsinstaller for non market apps.

I would like to get it working though if anyone has a defininative answer.

I had a lot of problems as well with PC sync. Seems that a lot people too according to the number of posts about this.

I've solved my problem very easily, though I think I could have found that solution earlier..

Well I got some front usb ports on my PC, as well as on my screen... PC sync was not working. I gave a last try directly on the USB ports behind the PC (basically the ones directly linked to the motherboard) and worked like a charm!

You might try this as on my side the problem was clearly the USB plugs...

That's good thinking but on my laptop it doesn't make any difference to which USB port I connect my Desire to.
I think my problem is in the SW itself. HTC Sync just can't be installed correctly to my computer. It did the first time but after it stopped working I just can't install it properly anymore. And I am 100% sure I didn't change anything in the meantime.
