Following Smartphone Thoughts earlier finding, that Windows XP PCs with ActiveSync can sync files with Windows Mobile Standard smartphones while Windows Vista PCs with Windows Mobile Device Center cannot sync files, Microsoft has given now an official statement.
According to Brighthand, Microsoft is aware that Windows Mobile 6 users can synchronize files between PCs and smartphones with Active Sync 4.5 only but the Redmond-based software giant will update Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) on Windows Vista PCs to support file synchronization with Windows Mobile 6 by mid-June.

"We appreciate our customers continuing to use ActiveSync 4.5 for file synchronization until this update is available and are looking forward to offering the WMDC synchronize option very soon."

To make one thing clear: if you want "to continue" sync files using ActiveSync 4.5 you either better not upgrade to Windows Vista (yet) or you have to downgrade from Windows Vista to Windows XP again. Microsoft ActiveSync isn't working with Windows Vista, it even cannot installed on Vista machines but the only Vista option in Windows Mobile Device Center which will receive an update later this summer.

Stay tuned for updates.

Cheers ~ Arne
