RE: Passwords


Thanks , I've read the FAQ and it has helped me.

I was wondering does the TrueSync Desktop and TrueSync Plus  come with SDK98?

I use SDK97, if I try to Sync I get a diaglogue box stating i need to contact Starfish to add-on the Sync capablity.

I may just re-install SDK97, I may have missed the Sync install.

I am interested because I have aquired a palm and i would like to sync my SDK data with the palm

RE: Passwords

Dear Doc,
If your version of SDK97 doesn't come with TruSync you can, as you saw from that Link above, get a copy of SDK98 which I would suggest is best if you wish to retain your
Card Logs/Contact Logs.
This is because SDK99 Doesn't have them except on an early version and the download certainly does not have them.

First you will have to register your version of SDK97 and then you will get a Password to access all of the Starfish site.

There is a procedure for loading TruSync the Pilot Desktop and the Palm Accessor and I suggest you use the Starfish site to find the correct way:
REMOVE THE GAPS FROM THE LINK and paste it into your Browser.

RE: Passwords

Does anyone know how to delete the password in SideKick 98?  I created a password, forgot it and now can't get in to my data.  Is there a file I can delete, or some other work-around?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Passwords

Dear Passerby,
its 21:30 if you can give me a few minutes I'll check

Regards Jim

RE: Passwords

Dear passerby,
First of all be VERY VERY CAREFUL



Highlight password and go to:
Registry|Export registry File and check the Branch at the bottom refers to the Password Branch

in the right pane there is a name
Highlight that name and delete it
then exit Regedit.
When you next start Sidekick it will have a blank/Greyed out password box and 2 Boxes to enter and confirm your new password, I would suggest (Strongly) that you enter a
very simple one
Once Sidekick is running
go to Tools|Preferences|General
and untick the box that says Password at startup
As I said before be very careful in the registry
any problems just DoubleClick the Registry Backup on the Desktop and you are back to what you were at the beginning.
If all goes well just delete the backup PERMANENTLY.

Regards Jim

RE: Passwords

Dear Frustrated passerby,

When you are back in Sidekick make sure you click the password button in
and then enter your password and leave the new password Text boxes empty.
Ok that and then make sure
password at startup
is not ticked

Regards Jim

RE: Passwords

Thank you very much Jim.  I'm going over to our church at lunch, where the errant computer is located, and try your fix.  I really appreciate your taking the time to help me out.
