USB WM5 for all
Previously my colleague and I wrote a little app to let developers use WM5 devices inside Parallels. I've now improved it and now it should let all users sync their WM5 devices in Parallels. Without this app in Parallels WM5 devices may only sync one time and will always disconnect after a minute or so. This app fixes this so that WM5 devices reliably sync and will never disconnect unless you actually unplug the device. I hope at least a few of you find it useful.
To use it you must first put your WM5 device in serial mode. To achieve this either use the USBSwitch app which might already be on your device in Start->Accessories or ActiveSync Mode which is in Settings->Connectons.
If you have neither of the above already on your device then install and try USBSwitch from here.
Next just install the app which you can download from here.
Run the app and your WM5 device should sync up and work fine.
Updated: Version 0.2 released (just fixes the annoying exception when shutting Windows down)
