View Full Version : Use of two devices

07-30-2004, 11:53 PM
Presently have NX80V which I use for work. Have seen the Zodiac 2 and want it. Will there be a problem with running both on one computer? Will I have to install versions of Desktop ? Would use the Zodiac to sync with Outlook.

I'd suggest you start off reading this (http://www.1src.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27906&highlight=zodiac+clie+hotsync) thread.

I know for a fact that the Sony desktop and hotsync manager don't play nice with other Palm installations. Make sure you install the Zodiac desktop software and hotsync program to a totally separate directory, and only run the appropriate hotsync manager when syncing each device; make separate shortcuts for each. Do not use the same user ID for both devices, or use UserName (http://www.bitsnbolts.com/username.html).

Actually, I would try to install the Zodiac software on top of the Sony software.

Tapwave has made some changes to the Desktop install that will try to upgrade all of the software to the newest version and install whateve conduits that it needs without destroying the existing conduits and HotSync accounts.

I wish PalmSource would do this with their base installer that they ship to OEMs.

Thanks, Foghead and ballistic. Your information is pointing me in the right direction. The previous times I got a new device I just replaced the old one. In this case I want to keep two. Thanks again.

Got the Zodiac. Problem now is that I want to use Desk top for Clie and Outlook for Clie. Can't seem to get it to work. Any ideas ?
