Microsoft releases ActiveSync 4.2

Microsoft has released ActiveSync 4.2. This latest version focuses on improving connectivity issues and includes the following:

  • Microsoft Outlook Improvements: Resolves issues relating to error code 85010014
  • Proxy/DTPT interaction Improvements: Improved auto configuration of device Connection Manager settings when desktop has no proxy path to the internet
  • Improved Desktop Pass Thru behavior with ISA proxy failures
  • Partnership improvements: Better resolution of multiple devices with the same name syncing with the same desktop
  • Connectivity Improvements: Better handling of VPN clients (resolve unbinding of protocols from our RNDIS adapter). New auto detection of connectivity failure with user diagnostic alerts

ActiveSync 4.2 supports PC sync via USB cable, Bluetooth, or infrared connection. Like earlier 4.x ActiveSync versions, it does not support remote sync via Wi-Fi or an Internet connection. So, if you are not using Windows Mobile 5.0, you may want to hold off upgrading if you use either of those.

It is currently available only in English.
