    I can't seem to get Palm Desktop to install. I deleted my old version amd every time I try to install the newer version included with my Verizon Centro, it gets stuck at "configuring registry" The latest version downloaded from Palm won't install either

    Any ideas?

    Two possibilities:
    1. You need to go into the registry and delete the old listing. If you don't know how to do this, I wouldn't recommend you try it since you'll risk killing your machine.

    2. You don't have the correct access rights to make a change to the registry. You usually have to have administration/Power User rights to install on Windows.
    Palm Pro -> PIII Upgrade Card -> Palm Vx w/ Minstrel-Omnisky -> Tungsten | T -> Treo 650 -> Centro

    I would recommend doing a clean uninstall of the Palm Software:

    Here are the steps:

    You need to do a "clean" uninstall of Palm desktop 4.1.4e. Use the instructions below to uninstall Palm desktop.

    You should first make a copy of your data to have just in case something
    happens. You can find your data files by going to Start --> Documents -->
    Palm OS Desktop. Highlight your Palm Desktop username and right click and
    copy. Then go to your PC desktop right click on a blank spot and select paste.

    Now you want to uninstall Palm Desktop and remove everything that has to do
    with Palm Desktop from your computer.
    Go to the following locations on the PC and delete the folders listed below.
    C:\Program Files\Palm or Palm One
    C:\Users\[Vista or XP Login Name]\appdata\local\virtualstore\Program Files\Palm or
    C:\Users\[Vista or XP Login Name]\appdata
    *Note you may need to view hidden folders to get to appdata. To do that go
    into your control panel and open folder options. Go to view tab and uncheck
    hide hidden files.
    Once this is done you will need to delete some registry keys from your PC Operating System.

    Word of warning, going here and deleting the wrong thing can cause your PC
    from starting up, crashing and deletion of programs and data. If you feel
    you are unsure of yourself, see if you have a friend that can help you or a
    PC technician that you can pay to help you. This procedure will show them everything they need to delete. To make sure we have a good copy of the current registry, we need to do a backup of the Registry.

    Go to start on the PC, in the search field type "regedit.exe" without quotes.

    Highlight COMPUTER, go to File --> Export. Should pop up with a Save As box.
    Current location is fine, should be in My Documents or save to a location you will remember. In the file name on the bottom type "backup[todaysdate]" i.e. backup07072008. Next, the hard part.

    The easiest way to make sure your working with the correct key, highlight the key i.e. palm quick install, and press delete on your keyboard. It will ask you, are you sure. Say yes. Do the same thing for all keys below.

    If you make a mistake, stop what you are doing. And call a PC technician.
    BUT do not turn off your computer.

    The reg keys are as follows (Note: some of theses reg keys will not be here
    but if they are delete them if not skip)

    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\Palm Quick Install
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\PalmOne File Transfer
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\Pilot Desktop
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Palm
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Palm, Inc.
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PalmDesktopAutorun
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\palmOne
    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PalmSource
    * HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\PalmSource or anything else that says palm

    Next reboot your computer.

    All you have to do now is install Palm Desktop that came with your device.

    Just Google these key words and it will be the first link: Palm Desktop all version
