Newer alternatives have been created to replace Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC, formerly ActiveSync). We recommend using Mobile Connect.

If you need to use WMDC, select the version that meets your system requirements from the table below.

After installation, if you are having difficulties running or connecting to WMDC, use the included "WMDC-fixes-for-Win10.msi" or refer to our instructional article about WMDC in Windows 10.
