I have Windows 8 Consumer Preview installed, but can't seem to set Wireless Sync up.

Has this issue been resolved? Did anyone manage to get Wireless Sync working properly?

  • Is this still an issue for you?

  • Running Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 7 since recently; but I haven't tried setting up Wireless Sync, as a result of never having it I sync quite infrequently. Sep 21 '14 at 8:22

If you get the error 80004001 it means (in developer terms) that it is not implemented (yet). And more importantly, anything can change without notice on a beta (preview) release.

  • I wonder if it is possible to copy the relevant components from Windows 7, perhaps forcing Zune to call Windows 7 DLLs instead of the Windows 8 DLLs. Because it worked back then, but now it seems missing. I would suspect it to be not that hard to fill up a hole, if only I knew how exactly... Apr 25 '12 at 19:40
  • I wouldn't do that, since you can't be sure what you get. Keep the wireless sync on your Windows 7 PC instead.

  • I have no Windows 7, will wait for more response to see whether anyone else got something fixed. Or perhaps hunt for it myself one of these days... Apr 25 '12 at 19:44
