It’s been quite a while since we’ve updated our products (but that’s another story). We realize that there are still many users of our products out there, especially Bonsai. Many of you initially purchased Bonsai for use with either Palm or Windows Mobile handhelds but no longer use those outdated devices. Eventually you may find yourself wanting to re-install Bonsai on a system that you don’t have or want to install Palm HotSync or WMDC. Here’s how you can do it.
This is meant for those that have a license for “Bonsai 5 desktop for Palm” or “Bonsai 5 desktop for Windows Mobile”. Those registration codes require that you have HotSync or MWDC installed and an old Palm or WM device to sync with.
- Install Bonsai 5 Desktop
- Run Bonsai 5 and select the “Help->Register” menu.
- In the “Step 2” dropdown, select “<Desktop Only Registration>”
- In “Step 3” where it asks you to “Enter the email used when registering below.”, instead enter either your HotSync User name or Windows Mobile Owner Name that is listed on your registration notification you received.
- Enter the same registration code you got from us.
That’s it. Simply put, just register Bonsai 5 as a Desktop only setup and instead of your email address, enter your device user name. Bingo. Done.
