I'm using Palm Desktop w/hotsync to sync 3 different Palm devices to the
same Palm Desktop. It seems to work ok for the regular PIM data, but is
screwing up on the apps. I want them all synced to the same PIM stuff so
I don't want to create other users for each device. I don't want the same
apps/data on each device though since they're running different versions
of some things because of diff. res. and color vs mono. I tried deleting
the TEMP007 folder under Backup where it's apparently trying to "restore"
a device from when it sees the apps & data aren't the same. That didn't
work, so I tried only moving the files I didn't want on the 2nd device.
Also didn't work. Tried taking everything out of the Backup and Temp007
folders all together, and still no luck. In fact, with the last 2 it
crashes the Palm device, Hotsync AND Palm Desktop! I hope somebody can
advise me on what to do. Here's the dump from the Hotsync crash if it
helps. I never know what to make of these things.

HOTSYNC caused an invalid page fault in
module SHW32.DLL at 014f:0a932d94.

Update: Just as a shot in the dark I changed the "custom" settings from
"desktop overwrites handheld" back to "synchronize" and for some insane
reason it worked without crash. It did come up with some wacked error
msg. about one record being before 1970 and the prog. only supporting
dates after that. Of course, there was no record like that. Weird.
