Due to the way our conduit works, you cannot setup multiple handhelds to sync to the SAME data on the PC. However, you can install the software a 2nd time, into another program directory, and setup a 2nd handheld to sync to it's own separate data files. The data files for each handheld will be kept separate on the PC, and two copies of the PC software will be on the PC - one for each handheld. To setup the software for a 2nd handheld with independent data, use this procedure:
Backup the data on the existing copy of the software that is already on the PC using the File/Backup menu command
Download the latest full installer for the software and start the installer
You will be asked if you want to upgrade the existing sofware, click NO to install a 2nd full copy
When asked about the program location, click Browse and change the folder name to something different (add the number '2' perhaps)
When asked about the Startup Folder, change the folder name to something different (add the number '2' perhaps)
When given the option to select to install handheld data files or not, select the option to INSTALL the handheld data files, since this is a new handheld
When shown the hotsync user list, be sure to select the hotysnc username for the 2nd handheld, NOT the handheld that might already have the software installed
Complete the installation and hotsync the 2nd handheld
Open ActiveSync, then select the Tools/Options menu item. Make sure the checkbox for [appname] is selected.
If a checkbox is not visible, please remove any SD or memory card from the handheld, then run the installer again to install to main memory.
If the checkbox is checked, but an 'Unresolved Items' message is displayed, disconnect the handheld from the PC, start [appname] on the handheld, then Close the software using the Close menu item at the bottom of the screen. Also, make sure the PC software is not running and closed on the PC as well. After doing this, reconnect the handheld to the PC. It may be necessary to disconnect/reconnect one more time to resolve all items.
For Windows Mobile 5 and other users with Activesync 4.x installed (or wanting to manually transfer data)... You can bypass the automatic Activesync synchronization and use a manual sync mode. This is useful if you have problems with Activesync auto-synchronization, or if you prefer to only sync when manually specified. To use the manual sync, do these steps:
Open ActiveSync, then select the Tools/Options menu item. Make sure the checkbox for [appname] is NOT selected
From the PC companion software, use the File / Transfer Data to Handheld menu command to send all data from the PC to the handheld.
From the PC companion software, use the File / Retrieve Data from Handheld menu command to retrieve all data from the handheld.
