JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

yes

GL ITCS :

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

Reloaded wdmc software, deleted the partnerships on the mobile device

GL ITCS :

and this is via a direct connection, like usb and active sync?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

yes active sync works ok on my old computer nut can't use it on MS office 2013

GL ITCS :

yes...

GL ITCS :

GL ITCS :

with 2013

GL ITCS :

is this windows 8 operating system?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

The mobile comms link is ok as I can read the files on my mobile but it wont let me select another partnership

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

No its Windows 7 professional

GL ITCS :

GL ITCS :

GL ITCS :

GL ITCS :

sorry

GL ITCS :

ignore that

GL ITCS :

ok, could you please fully patch both the operating system and office 2013, reboot and then get back to me once you have done so please?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

This has already been done

GL ITCS :

ok

GL ITCS :

will it sync wirelessly?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

don't know haven't tried this

GL ITCS :

Ok, it is worth a go I think, it may be that this actually isn't supported by M~Soft, which i know sounds crazy

GL ITCS :

can you give me a few mins to have a quick look please?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

Yes if you want me to do it wirelessly I will need to know how to set it up

GL ITCS :

do you use outlook.com for email and your contacts?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

No my broadband and outlook are with bt

GL ITCS :

when you set this up

GL ITCS :

did you select "Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync compatible service?

GL ITCS :

this is the second option when you add a new account

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

not sure what you mean are you saying there is something I need to set up in the desktop outlook to make WMDC work ?

GL ITCS :

presumably your contacts and calendar are associated with an email address yes?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

yes

GL ITCS :

that is how you access them online or your phone?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

yes its the bt address I use but I sometimes get e-mails on the outlook account don't know why

GL ITCS :

ok

GL ITCS :

i think you will need to try to add the bt address into outlook 2013 first

GL ITCS :

File

GL ITCS :

Add Account

GL ITCS :

then Second option as above

GL ITCS :

Active Sync

GL ITCS :

and then go through the process and try to see if you get synchronisation that way please?

GL ITCS :

it will take a little while

GL ITCS :

can you have a bash at it and then get back to me please?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

I've just checked and the desktop is already set with the bt e-mail address

GL ITCS :

in 2013?

GL ITCS :

outlook 2013?

GL ITCS :

and set for Active Sync?

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

yes that's all I'm running on this computer and trying to use the WMDC software to synh

GL ITCS :

JACUSTOMER-af47dvhn- :

no it a htc hd2 mobile with windows 6.1

GL ITCS :
