Because Microsoft's ActiveSync 4.5 will not work on machines with Windows XP (SP3), from what I've read I need to install ActiveSync 4.1. Has anyone tested this on ArcPad 10.0.2?

1 Answer 1


ArcPad 10.1 requires ActiveSync 4.5

ActiveSync 4.5 on Windows SP3 requires you to upgrade the original installer to Windows installer 4.5


Note: Make sure your Firewall is switched off during install.

ArcPadTeam blog has helpful information (not sure why this content is not on the main ESRI site) http://arcpadteam.blogspot.com/2010/10/latest-versions-of-software-firmware.html

  • ok so once we download Windows Installer 4.5 we will be able to load Active Sync 4.5 on Windows XP SP3? Also, you mention 10.1 requires ActiveSync 4.5, I assume it's the same for 10.0.2?
