Huzzah! Microsoft promised a WMDC patch in June and they've delivered. The Vista-only ActiveSync fixes that file sync bug but also looks to add some nice features as well. My #1 fav: "Automatic Device Authentication," as in "You can stop having to enter your #$@@#$ PIN every time you plug in your phone to your computer." Joy! WMDC 6.1 works with Windows Mobile 2003 and up.
This new version of the Windows Mobile Device Center contains key improvements and new features to support Windows Mobile 6 devices. The Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 is only supported on Windows Vista.
