    From what I understand, the Zire 72 can be sync'd with Outlook 2007. This page (http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/8716_en.html#zire72) suggests downloading - palmoutlook2007conduits.zip (7.2MB). When clicking on the link, you go to a page that says coming soon!?
    I love my Palm and am trying to set up the ability to Sync. I have Windows 8.1, Outlook 2007 and a Zire 72. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Joey, a couple of things -- duplicate posts really aren't a good idea; 2nd, a Brighthand site search for keyword aceeca would have turned up these relevant threads:
    1. http://forum.brighthand.com/threads/zire-72s-will-it-work-with-palm-desktop-6-2.289513/
    2. http://forum.brighthand.com/threads/make-palm-desktop-hotsync-manager-work-in-windows-7.284755/
    good luck, post back if you have problems
    EDIT: in hindsight, I can see how knowing to search for "aceeca" isn't intuitively obvious. didn't mean to be snarky…

    Sorry about the duplicate post. I was unsure of just where my question belonged.

    I already had the Aceeca drivers installed. I got the info from the Brighthand forum.
    I have installed Palm Desktop 4.1.4 on my computer and it is working.
    My difficulty is getting a Hot Sync happening between my Zire 72 and Outlook 2007.
    I came across information indicating it is possible to sync between my Zire 72 and Outlook 2007 from 2sources. The 2 sources lead to dead links.

    I have found a link that works and am now able to sync between my Zire 72 and Outlook 2007 on Windows 8.1

    Joey, glad you found a solution to the problem, and thank•you for posting the link.

    mods, does this qualify as being "sticky worthy"? my thought is yes, possibly in another forum.
