Detailed instructions for reinstalling Palm Desktop
Authored by: TvE on Jul 12, '05 03:37:05PM

I have read a lot about users having problems installing Palm Desktop on various version of OS X - personally I have never had those problems. I think part of it is caused due to NOT using the latest version of the installer (4.2.1 is the latest I think).

Palm have released version B of the 4.2.1 installer that apparently is taking care of some Tiger problems - I had no problem re-installing with my "old" 4.2.1 installer after I got the same symptoms as mentioned in this article after I had "Archived and Install" my Tiger ;-)

But those newer (post 4.0) Palm desktop installers that work on Tiger do not support older devices, like Visors and older Treos.

That means because they made mistakes and refuse to fix them, I have to buy a new Palm to make it work with my new laptop.

I don't think I will be buying anymore Palm devices.
