A desktop computer or laptop that synchronizes with mobile devices can install the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 mobile device client during synchronization. Once the mobile device client installation files are distributed to the computer or laptop, the mobile device client can be installed across the Mobile Device Center on the Windows Vista operating system or ActiveSync (Microsoft Windows XP and earlier) connection. For more information about Mobile Device Center (Windows Vista) or ActiveSync (Windows XP and earlier), see the Device Synchronization web page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=81724).
