Upgrading Master Fume Mobile Calculator to v4.2 (the below instructions also work for previous versions of the MasteRate Calculator)

Download and install Microsoft ActiveSync v4.5 for XP or Windows Mobile Device Center for Vista / Windows 7 from HERE.  ActiveSync v4.5 will only run on XP and Windows Mobile Device Center will only run on Vista or Windows 7.  NOTE:  Some of the newer builds of Windows 7 will have Windows Mobile Device Center already installed.  Also, you must have v4.5 of ActiveSync if you run Windows XP.  Previous versions of ActiveSync do not work properly.  Any version of Windows Mobile Device Center will work.  You can check to see if you have Windows Mobile Device Center installed or Active Sync v4.5 installed by clicking the Windows and/or Start icon on the bottom left hand corner of your screen.  Click 'All Programs'.  You will then see the ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center icon.  If you do not see either of these icons then please install the appropiate application via the link above. Please also keep in mind to check the version of ActiveSync for only version 4.5 will work.  See images below.

Once you have ActiveSync (Windows XP) or Windows Mobile Device Center (Vista and Windows 7) installed you may continue to the next step.

Plug your Master Fume / MasteRate Mobile Calculator (PDA) into your computer.  You'll be prompted to setup your device for the first time.  Unless desired you do not have to sync anything with ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center.  We simply use these applications as a bridge between the PDA and your computer.  Please go through the setup wizard.  You can leave all sync options unchecked if desired.  Once you verify that ActiveSync and/or Windows Mobile Device Center is connected to your PDA please continue to the next step.  Please see images below for examples of when your PDA / calculator is connected and detected by ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center.
