Winfun with WinphoneBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // February 24, 2011 in Microsoft
When, yesterday, I finally attached my new Winphone to a PC running Windows, I got a funny dialog box that the device was not recognized and that Windows recommended against installing it.
At that moment I decided my post for today should be a "ha ha" screenshot of that message.
But the laugh was on me. The path to finding all the plug ins and updates and service paks necessary to run the software necessary to connect the Winphone was arduous. And my computer didn't make it. I experienced the blue screen of death and basically forfeited an afternoon of productivity.
I'm chagrined, but also oddly appreciative of the machine and the people supporting it and all it connects me to.
