    Windows 7 Sync Centre

    Afternoon,

    I have a laptop that is windows 7 64-bit.

    Sync centre does not allow me to create a new sync partnership.

    I have made the user a local administrator.

    I have enabled the option on the Local Machine to allow offline files.

    Even if i login as administrator i cannot use sync center.

    All other laptops work fine, the only difference with this one is that a VPN is setup on the machine and not sure if that has an affect but it is not always connected.

    Please Help

    Thanks

    James Tidd

    Computer > Policies > Admin Templates > Network > Offline Files

    User Configuration > Policies > Admin Templates > Network > Offline Files

    these are the locations of the offline file settings see if you have anything set.

    Thanks for the reply's.

    So i have enabled offlines files and it tells me to restart the machine, this has no effect.

    So done some research and i needed to create a reg key to "format the CSC Database"

    Which i did but on reboot the machine then done a psyhical memory dump and i had to restore the machine to an earlier state

    Hope someone can help

    Thanks
