Go to Start Menu, then Run, services.msc. Scroll down to Palm Novacom, right click then Restart. See if that works.

Ok bottom left corner on your PC, you have a start menu? (Been a long time since I've used XP) click on it and find "Run" click on that, then type in services.msc. Scroll down in that window to Palm Novacom, then right-click on that and select restart.

Is this your first time doing this? You do have Developer Mode ON?
nm I see that you do.

You already have Preware installed on your phone?

I don't know, you could erase it and start over following these:

• You will need a PC or Mac that is connected to the internet, and the USB cable that came with your phone.
• Use this link to make sure you have the latest version of Java running on your computer. Update your Java to the latest version if needed.
• Download the Universal Novacom Installer from Canuck Coding to your computer.
• Download the Preware Installer to your computer.

2. Install Novacom Drivers on your computer

Run the Universal Novacom Installer program now to install the drivers needed for your computer to recognize your webOS device.



Choose the “download” option. The installer will download the appropriate Novacom drivers.



After downloading, the correct Novacom drivers will be installed on your computer.




3. Put your phone is Developer Mode
• All versions of webOS can be placed in developer mode by using the keyboard to type “webos20090606” without the quotes. (Note: There are other codes and methods, but this is the shortest and easiest to remember because it’s the date that the first webOS was launched). If you had an iPhone or Droid, you’d be doing something scary like Jailbreaking or Rooting. But, Palm created Dev Mode to make things easy for developers.

• Tap the Dev mode app and turn the switch “on”. If your phone is running webOS version 1.x it will force your phone to reboot. Devices running 2.x and higher will simply hesitate for a few seconds and then continue operating normally. If it asks you about a password, ignore it and just tap the “submit” button. You are now in developer mode and there is no harm in leaving it this way.



4. Install Preware:
• Plug your phone in to a USB port on your computer.
• Choose “just charge” when the phone prompts you.
• Run the Preware Installer program you previously downloaded.
[img]http://forums.precentral.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=58086&stc=1&d=1307647465[img]

• After installation, you will find the Preware app icon on your device at the bottom of the left-most launcher page.
• Tap the Preware icon. Tap “Yes” when asked about file association.


After loading various feeds, you will see a catalog of apps and patches for you to explore.
Preware instructions in there too, not what you're looking for, but I don't know maybe your file on your PC got corrupt or something.

ok so follow those instructions, and ONLY use the Preware Standalone Installer that's provided in the link. Works awesome, no WOSQI required.

Go to Bullet #3 and Download Universal Novacom Installer, and you should get your doctor then. When it asks if you want to overwrite, say yes.
