I tried downloading it from Microsoft.com. I don't really care if it is Mobile Device Center. That is the program that my co-workers use, but their computers are different from mine. I just need a program that will make it easy for me to directly transfer files from my Trimble TSC3 Data Collector (which uses Windows Embedded handheld) to my computer.
I know at least one of co-workers had Windows 8. I know he upgraded from Windows 7, but then again, so did I. Is it because he already had Mobile Device Center when he upgraded? Something is not adding up. Am I going to have to downgrade to 7 and lose all the apps and programs I have that are designed specifically for Windows 8 in order to get my computer to communicate with my Trimble? Mostly I am worried about losing money I have invested in Windows 8 (i.e. my Microsoft Office suite for Windows 8). If I were to downgrade, would this program revert to something Windows 7 would recognize?
Tell me more about these compatibility modes. Where would I find them?
The installer for...?
OK, I saved the installer to my desktop as a "shortcut", there were no other "save" options. When I clicked on properties there was no compatibility tab. Where did I go wrong?
When I click download, it sends it to my download folder. When I right click on it there is no option for save. When I left click it attempts to install.
