Re: Error Code 0x80040057 Check Documentation

what is the exact message ? Is this this one ?

A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer Error Code: 0x80040057


if it's the case, it's a Windows XP problem.

I had same problem.  Could not get Windows calendar (on Vista) to sync.  Under sync options, yahoo was listed.  I signed up to yahoo (for the calendar feature) and it syncs with no problem at all.  The only downfall is you have to go online to yahoo for the calendar, but at least it works!

Re: Error Code 0x80040057 Check Documentation

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and have received the same error message when trying to sync the windows calendar. It does not come up in the options for the calendar, but it does for the contacts/address book.  Does anyone know how to get this to sync?

It is not a Windows problem.  Blackberry does not support sync with Vista Windows Calendar.

 

Come on RIM, get with it and get a new release out that supports Vista Windows Calendar!!!!!

Re: Error Code 0x80040057 Check Documentation

I just purchased the Bold 9000 and have a problem sync of memo pad receiving the error code 0x80040057.  Would this remain an XP problem or am I missing something?

 

Thanks

I was able to talk with Blackberry thru AT&T. I ended up using Blackberry desktop mgr and the switch device manager. That worked for me.
