How do I delete Palm user from Android desktop?

Postby idamtnboy » Sat Nov 24, 2012 12:08 am

I had both the Palm and Android versions of the desktop installed for testing, as well as the demo HB on my Palm. Since I'm moving from the Palm I deleted all Palm versions of HB, both desktop and handheld. But I still have my Palm user ID showing up in the desktop HB. What do I have to do to get rid of it. It's a nuisance having it show up in the desktop. I've looked everywhere, and tried everything I can think of to get rid of it. There is no option within HB to manage Palm users. I can't find any reference to the Palm user ID in the registry entries for HB nor in any folders or configuration files for HB. Where is it buried?

Is my only choice to uninstall and reinstall HB desktop? If I do that will that get rid of the Palm user, or not?

Ouch! Is there no other way?

Uninstalling Palm desktop is not a viable option as I'm going to continue to use it for my desktop PIM. Or does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement for Palm desktop that syncs nicely with either the native contacts and calendar apps on Android, or a better one? I was planning on using DejaOffice on the phone and Companion Link to sync the Palm desktop with DejaOffice.

The standard way is to delete the whole Palm Desktop installation, as Curt noted.
You might be able to get by deleting the Palm user from HanDBase Desktop's registry.
If you are up for trying it, please email me at support @ ddhsoftware . com

I found the answer, but it's not the type of fix that Dave & Brian would want discussed in the forum. If anyone else wants to accomplish this same thing send me a PM and I'll explain what I did. It's fairly simple, really, if you have the tools and knowledge to implement it.
