I have seen multiple posts with people asking if they can sync multiple Palms with 1 computer. The answer usually equates to having each device having their own hot sync name.

My question is whether it is possible to have 2 Palms with the SAME hotsync name sync with 1 computer?

If so, can I do it under the same User Login on Windows Vista? Or do I need to have each Palm under its own login?

I have a Treo 680 and will be getting a Centro tomorrow. As of this point, I have not decided if I will keep the Centro, but all the software I purchased for the 650/680 is under a Hotsync name and I would rather not purchase my software again for a new Hotsync name since I will be using both devices.


If I need 2 different Vista Users in order to do this, thats fine. If I go that route, I am assuming I do not need to reinstall all the Palm software, but simply run the Hotsync/Desktop from the original user login under the new user login?

Sorry if this is confusing. I just want to see if anyone has done this before.

Thanks!
