Palm Quick Install in Windows 7

    OK I have posted that you can use the Palm desktop 4 versions on windows 7 and they work. They do but the only way to load a file was to right click on it and chose send to / Palm Powered (TM) Handheld. I decided to see if I could make everything work normally. I managed to accomplish it. I did not need to hack the registry either. The first problem was getting the Palm Quick Install icon to show up on the desktop and then open up the program. When I loaded the TX software on two other computers it did not load with the Palm Desktop and DTG icons.
1: I went to start/all programs/palm folder/ and right clicked on the Palm Quick Install and sent it to the desktop. It went there but would not open on one of the computers. I tried a couple of times. I then right clicked on the icon and choose Restore Previous Versions. I chose the compatibility tab and selected the help me choose the settings. I did this several times and also rebooted the computer and unchecked the open with administrator in properties. I was finally rewarded with the Palm Quick install opening up when I clicked on it.
2. Clicking on a palm file or dragging it into the Palm Quick install application had no effect. A warning came up stating (There was a problem sending the command to the program.) I plugged this into Google and came up with several sites. There is in Vista and 7 a file association of some sort missing. I was reading on how to hack into the registry and really did not want to waste any more time on it. I was about to give up when I decided to attempt a Microsoft solution. They have all kinds of fixit registry programs for all kinds of tasks. I typed in Microsoft file type fixit in Google. They have a little program that scans your system and then gives you several choices to select. I selected them all when the choice came up. When it finished I exited out of the web page and clicked on a palm file. It worked. I deleted the file and attempted to drag it into the Palm Quick Install this also worked. File and Folder fixit

Great!  Glad to help.  
AFAIK, there is no such version - 6.2.2 is the latest Access made before ceasing support for the program.
MicroSoft has had a typo on their support site for a long time now.  Is this the version number you are referring to?

  • Windows Vista Ultimate Quick Install for Tungsten E2

    Well, I have a Tungsten E2, which I use commenly, but not often. I just got a my dad's old computer for Christmas (which is a huge upgrade from mine, which was made in the 1990's I think), and he got me Windows Vista Ultimate for it. I can do everything with it; Palm Desktop, Hotsync, etc. except for using Palm Quick Install. I really don't feel like posting a picture, so I will just describe it. First I have to allow it to run, and then it checks Microsoft for a solution to use it. After that it says "palmOne Quick Install has stopped working
    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

    I have noticed around the site that many people are having problems with Vista, but I haven't seen any with this particular problem.

  • Tungsten E2-can't install Palm Desktop 6.2 - Windows 7

    Tried to install Palm Desktop 6.2 on Windows 7 computer so I can down load data on my Palm to desktop computer.
    Before final installation I get the following message:
    "This set-up does not support upgrading from your current installationof Palm OS Desktop."
    Uninstall your current desktop."  Desktop not installed on computer.
    Closed this info box and next box popped up.
    "The wizard was interrupted before Palm Desktop by access could be completed. Your system has not been modified.
    To install this progaram at a later time, please run installation again."
    And finally the following message popped up:
    "The selected Port COM1 is not available at this time. Hot Sync manager will open the port whwn it becomes avaialble."
    Any idea what I can do to get this progarm to load on my new computer?
    Post relates to: Tungsten T2

    Try to "clean" uninstall PD and re-install 6.2. 6.2 has data loss issues, FYI. You can export the data to backup and if the data is lost, import the data to recover.
    You should first make a copy of your data to have just in case something
    happens. You can find your data files by going to Start --> Documents -->
    Palm OS Desktop. Highlight your Palm Desktop username and right click and
    copy. Then go to your PC desktop right click on a blank spot and select paste.
    If this is the first time you are installing Palm desktop and encountering a problem, skip the previous step.
    Now you want to uninstall Palm Desktop and remove everything that has to do
    with Palm Desktop from your computer.
    Go to the following locations on the PC and delete the folders listed below.
    C:\Program Files\Palm or Palm One
    C:\Users\[Vista Login Name]\appdata\local\virtualstore\Program Files\Palm or
    PalmOne
    C:\Users\[Vista Login Name]\appdata
    *Note you may need to view hidden folders to get to appdata. To do that go
    into your control panel and open folder options. Go to view tab and uncheck
    hide hidden files.
    Once this is done you will need to delete some registry keys from your PC Operating System.
    Word of warning, going here and deleting the wrong thing can cause your PC
    from starting up, crashing and deletion of programs and data. If you feel
    you are unsure of yourself, see if you have a friend that can help you or a
    PC technician that you can pay to help you. This procedure will show them everything they need to delete. To make sure we have a good copy of the current registry, we need to do a backup of the Registry.
    Go to start on the PC, in the search field type "regedit.exe" without quotes.
    Highlight COMPUTER, go to File --> Export. Should pop up with a Save As box.
    Current location is fine, should be in My Documents or save to a location you will remember. In the file name on the bottom type "backup[todaysdate]" i.e. backup07072008. Next, the hard part.
    The easiest way to make sure your working with the correct key, highlight the key i.e. palm quick install, and press delete on your keyboard. It will ask you, are you sure. Say yes. Do the same thing for all keys below.
    If you make a mistake, stop what you are doing. And call a PC technician.
    BUT do not turn off your computer.
    The reg keys are as follows (Note: some of theses reg keys will not be here
    but if they are delete them)
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\Palm Quick Install
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\PalmOne File Transfer
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\Pilot Desktop
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Palm
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Palm, Inc.
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PalmDesktopAutorun
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\palmOne
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PalmSource
    * HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PalmSource or anything else that says palm
    Next reboot your computer.
    Then reinstall your Palm desktop from the CD and do a hotsync. If it asks
    you for a username, enter the name that is on your device in the upper right corner of the hotsync screen.
    The best way to preserve your data is to export the data in each category in Palm Desktop to a separate folder on your PC.
    Create a new folder on your PC somewhere that is convenient. Name it something like Palm Desktop Data. Click on the link below and follow the instructions on that page for the export procedure.
    http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb2/common/article/28734_en.html
    Make sure you select all for the range in the export window.
    With the data saved in the folder you created, make a copy of that folder and save to a flash drive, cd-rw or external hard drive.
    Anytime you make a change in Palm Desktop, export the data that was changed to that folder and save again to the external media.
    With this process you can always import the data back into Palm Desktop anytime you have a problem with the data in Palm Desktop or if your computer/hard drive/device crashes.
    For reference purposes, click on the following link for the support page for your device on the kb.hpwebos.com webpage.
    http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/47831_en.html#tungstent2
    There are links on the page to the user guide, troubleshooting, how to's, downloads, etc.

  • Quick Install Teminates after file selection

    Running Version 6.2 of Software for a Palm T|X
    It brings up version 1.1.2 of Palm Quick Install.
    When I find files I want to install to the Palm, the software teminates with a "Runtime Error" Abnormal termination message and closes.
    I recently updated to Office 2007 and the earlier Hotsync software would hang when trying to synchronize, so I went out to Palm to get the latest software. Now the sync occurs fine, but I can't install.
    Ideas?

Any idea's?
    Post relates to: Tungsten E2

    barrybaillie,
    These warnings sound like the Vista's UAC kicking in. If this is the case, you should know that Quick Install does not work in Vista.
    The downloadable Desktop 6.2.2 for Vista has a replacement to Quick Install that does work - but the Desktop itself is truly terrible and loses many other functions (Expense, NotePad, VersaMail, colour-coded events, Birthdays and Anniversaries) that you may have come to expect from your Desktop.
    If your current Desktop is otherwise working as expected, you should know that an alternative to Quick Install already exists on your machine and this does work on Vista. The easiest way to access it is to right-click the program you wish to install, then  > Send to... > Palm Powered Handheld. This is a shortcut to the program instapp in the Palm folder.
    An installation window will pop up (a UAC confirmation *may* pop up and can be dismissed) showing the chosen program ready for Hotsync. At this point you may also Add other programs/files. Hotsync when ready.
    A further alternative that I understand works with Vista is the freeware Pilot Install (  http://www.freewarepalm.com/utilities/simplyinstal​l-pilotinstall.shtml ) and which bypasses Palm's software entirely.
    Hope this helps!

    Hi Tamekia,
    I am sorry to hear nothing has worked yet. I have looked up some additional information and possible solutions. Follow the steps in this document to perform a level-three uninstall, register the Windows Installer Service, and then reinstall the HP software. An uninstall and reinstall of the software deletes and overwrites any of the files that might cause the error and resets the Windows Installer. HP recommends that you download the latest software from the HP Web site to remove any files that might be causing this error.

    What OS is on your computer, and which version of Palm Desktop are you using?
    I'm not quite understanding what you're attempting to do... You want to "add the app to Documents to Go"?
    Are you trying to sync an Office file?  
    Is the program you're trying to add PalmOS files?  Are they still in .zip form or .exe?  If so, you need to unpack or run the .exe on your computer first.

    Horst

    horst37, neither Quick Install, nor the LifeDrive Manager will work with Windows 7.
    Microsoft broke these two programs when they changed to Vista.  Since Win7 is similar to Vista, it still doesn't allow the two to work correctly.
    This is why Palm Desktop 6.2.2 was made by Access - it has a new "Install Program" to move files to a PalmOS device.
    I'd suggest you try 6.2.2, and add another program from Pimlicosoftware.com - PalmHotsyncSetup.exe.
    Have you tried beaming the data from the Clie to the LifeDrive?

  • Quick install - hot sync games to device not expansion card

    Can I get quick install to hot sync pinball game directly to device instead of expansion card?
    Post relates to: Treo 680 (AT&T)

    Yes, very easy to do!  In Quick Install, you are presented with two windows - the upper one is for tranferral to the Device, the bottom for the card.
    I'm hazarding a guess here that the game you are trying to install is refusing to go to the device, correct?  If so, you may be trying to install a game for another OS, or the download is a compressed file (.zip or .exe).  Compressed files have to be unpacked on your computer first to get the Palm OS files (.prc or .pdb).  
    Once the files have been extracted from the zip, you can then double-click on them to send them to Quick Install.

  • Quick Install program won't let me change user

    Hi thanks ahead of time for your assistance.
    I have two organizers maintained on one computer.  A Z22 for my son (hand me down) and a Palm TX for me (upgraded from the original Z22 through the upgrade option).  I finally added user names for syncing for the calender/contacts ect and everything was working fine until I tried to use the Quick Install program.
    Quick install refuses to acknowledge any user but me so it won't install on the Z22 (though it tries and goes all the way through hotsync including having quick install remove the software from the addit menu).
    I looked at his PALM folder and there is no quick install folder so I tried making a copy of it just to see.
    Is there any way to add a user to quick install the help hints that you can "change users at will" but it just doesn't list his user profile as a choice in quick install though it does everywhere else.

    I assume this computer runs Windows XP.
