HTC Sync 2.0.8 does not start on Windows XP S3

    Dear all,

    I have the following problem and I would like to get your expertise on it:

    Today I installed HTC Sync 2.0.8 on my computre (in order to communicate with my HTC Hero device), and installation did not give any errors or exceptions. The OS of the computer is Windows XP SP3. I have Windows Address Book on it (Outlook express). When I try to start the application (i.e. HTC Sync), I only get an empty warning. By empy warning a mean a little OK dialog with a warning sign but no text at all! So, the program does not start. When I press the dialog, nothing happens (the dialog just disappears). Btw, I am using Avira AntiVir (Personal). Might this be the problem??

    Could anyone please help me solve this mystery? Many thanks in advance and happy new year 2010!

    Kind regards,

    I get the exact same thing, but am running AVG not avira so don't think that's an issue. I've been getting that blank warning dialog for weeks without knowing what it was from. Guess this is not a widespread problem...

    Yeah.. I still have the same problem. I tried to completely uninstall Avira, but it did not help. The problem is still there...

    Even HTC sync is not working with WINDOWS 7 Platform. Hopefully, HTC may release a patch for this in by Mid Feb
