If you have a Smartphone (Windows Mobile device without a touch-screen), then you can only synchronize ListPro if your device runs Windows Mobile 6 or newer.

ListPro relies on ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center File Synchronization to sync. Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5 Smartphones do not support file synchronization, so you cannot synchronize ListPro data with them.

If you have an older Smartphone, you can copy your data back and forth manually, and you can also use ListPro 5.0's Publish feature to copy your data from your PC to your phone with just a couple of clicks. You can also use the Publish feature with any Smartphone to move linked files or images to your phone along with your ListPro data.

To sync with a Windows Mobile 6 or newer Smartphone:

  1. Connect your phone to your PC, and ensure that ListPro is closed on your phone. (Either go to Menu -> Show Files in ListPro on the phone, or quit the program using a task manager.)
  2. Open ActiveSync and pick Tools -> Options. (With Windows Mobile Device Center on Vista, go to Mobile Device Settings -> Change Content Sync Settings)
  3. Place a checkmark next to the Files option
  4. Open ListPro on your desktop PC
  5. Click on File -> Synchronization and follow the wizard.

To copy your data back and forth manually with an older Smartphone:

  1. Connect your phone to your PC, and ensure that ListPro is closed on your phone. (Either go to Menu -> Show Files in ListPro on the phone, or quit the program using a task manager.)
  2. Open your My Computer window and double-click on the icon for your phone.
  3. You should see your ListPro .CLF file in the list. If you don't, you will need to open  \\My Device\\My Documents or \\My Device\\Storage\\My Documents\\ or \\My Device\\IPSM\\My Documents.
  4. Copy your ListPro file onto your desktop PC. Or, copy the .CLF file from your desktop PC into the Mobile Device window.

To use ListPro 5.0's Publish feature to move data from your PC to your phone:

  1. Connect your phone to your PC
  2. Open ListPro on your desktop PC
  3. Click Tools -> Publish
