    "Still ticking"

    April 11, 2014  |   By Tryumph

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    For anybody still using their Palm (I use it to play dull games on airplanes to help me sleep -- seriously), this software still makes it possible to download stuff and transfer it to the Palm (in my case, a IIIc). It's still tricky to install and clunky as ever, but considering the options, who's complaining?

    Contrary to a previous review, it DOES work with Windows 7 (at least my 64-bit version).

    Cons

    Palm, we hardly knew ye.

    Summary

    Last gasp of support for an obsolete product. I suggest you download and save the installer and any related software in case Palm goes bye-bye for good.

    "Does not work in Windows 7 or 8"

    July 24, 2013  |   By carconb1

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    No pros because I could not use it or open it

    Cons

    Con doesn't work on my computers

    Summary

    I would love to find a palm desktop that would work on my computers but have tried several times with different downloads and pretty much given up.

    "Previous Palm Desktop v. 4.1.4 is Better"

    May 25, 2013  |   By Johnstone59

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    Works well on all versions of Windows 7.

    Cons

    There is no color coding your calendar categories like there is on Palm Desktop v. 4.1.4.

    Summary

    I ran this Palm Desktop v. 6.2 on my Windows 7 Home Premium laptop for awhile, but I never liked it as well as v. 4.1.4 because this version does not allow for color coding the calendar categories. The old version 4.1.4 will not run on Win 7 Hm Premium, but I discovered 4.1.4 will run just fine on Win 7 Ultimate, so I upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate. You can find a free upgrade to Win 7 Ultimate on the internet that passes the Windows Genuine Copy test just fine.

    "Very good upgrade to my original"

    March 15, 2012  |   By mare1936

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    This program downloaded and installed seamlessly. The upgrade is not particularly noticeable, although it runs well and has a few new perks.

    Cons

    The hotsync is not operable with this version either since I have a 64 bit system. My biggest complaint with this is that although my Palm z22 was not a year old when I got Vista, I could not use it on that version of windows. I had to use it with my daughter's XP. Then she went to windows 7 and I could use it there. I got a new computer and it is a 64 bit system. And now her's is too. Since my palm works fine and has so much data stored on it I can't seem to get it to sync with anything. So My grandson gave me an old laptop with 32 bit but "slow as molasses In January" and I use it there. I know these computer companies like "planned obsolescence" but it tee's me off. And since I am on social security I can't afford to replace something that works I'll have to settle for that. I downloaded on that and all works fine. Thanks for listening to my complaint. Maybe you can talk someone into creating a driver for 64bit systems. You's make a lot of palm owners happy.

    Summary

    It's good if you have 32 bit systems.

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    okay if you don't have a previous version

    Cons

    it wiped out all my contacts, calendar data, everything that was in my old version.

    "No Improvement to Original Palm Desktop"

    May 6, 2011  |   By Bounzer67

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    This software is incompatible with some software that I already run on my Palm.
    It generates errors while synchronizing.

    Summary

    All-in-all it was absolutely NOT an improvement to the original software that came with my Palm.I had to remove it and reinstall my original Palm software.

    "No major problems w/download."

    April 29, 2011  |   By stoweb

    Version: Palm Desktop 6.2

    Pros

    Not able to comment since I don't use added features.

    Cons

    None noted thus far.

    Summary

    No particular problems downloading to Windows XP desk-top/Palm T/X. Did not lose any data. Have not tried to figure-out how to back-up my data for handheld - in case everything were to get lost during 1st Hot-Sync (which occured automatically during set-up). Kind of scary - although I also sync w/a laptop - so data is backed-up there.
