I no longer have need of ActiveSync as I don't have a Windows CE handheld anymore. I'd like
to uninstall it, but every time I try, I get a "fatal error during install" dialog. I've tried to use the
setup.msi to do an uninstall rather than install, but I get a message that an error occurred during
install and the installation terminates. It seems there is no automatic way to get rid of this thing.
Is there a way to uninstall it manually???
OK, I tried the steps outlined above, but I still have a very odd problem and I guess the uninstall has not
completed or something. Whenever I plug a media device into the USB port (such as an MP3 player) or
whenever I start Windows Media Player, ActiveSync4.5 wakes up from somewhere and tries to install
itself. It gets half way through the "Gathering System info" and then aborts, only to start over and over
again. If I hit the cancel button enough times, it finally gives up, but will return again the next time I try
to run MP or hook up my MP3 player.
There must be more crud left laying around on my system somewhere. Any other ideas other than the
above? I really need help with this.
