No longer recognizes a Lumia 920 despite being connected via USB. Now what?

Also MAS only isn't a good option. Give users choice and offer a standalone update with proper sparkle updates, please with cream on top.

FYI if you're running into this, a device restart solves the problem.

This is available through the appstore only. MS should make this available through their site as well for those that do not use iTunes or the appstore.

Shouldn't they have replaced the Windows "flag"-logo by now?

Simply works as advertised. Does almost everything that Zune does on Windows. And the latest 2.0.2 release has some nice new features.

I use it regularly with my Nokia Lumia 800 (I have an iPhone and an Android smartphone, too) and never ran into any bugs or problems. I wish every Microsoft product for the Mac were like this ;-)

I haven't used this software because I don't have a windows phone although I am really liking the idea of getting one. The one thing stopping me at this point is the lack of Office/Outlook connectivity from a Mac running office to WP7.

I don't want or need an exchange server but I do need to have my office/contact/task data with me. So if Microsoft want's me to switch from my iPhone to WP7 they need to provide me with direct connectivity between Mac office and WP7.

WIndows Phone 7 Connector is only available on US Mac App Store. SO if you are in other country, it may not be available

Love every Microsoft software for Mac. This software allow us to use Windows Phone 7 with Mac OS, a great combination between Apple and MS.

I've been a long time Microsoft & Apple product user (since 1993, first Mac 1993). While i can understand the criticism against MS, i also recognize how easy MS makes it for us to access, process and view important information.

For example MeGUI runs only on MS Windows. No problem for me, or any other serious user, because MS Windows has a lot of compatible (!) productivity software like AviSynth or Virtual Dub. Why do you think we do not have AviSynth or MeGUI for Mac OS X? The answer is simple: MS Windows has a much broader market, and we as the Mac users profit from it, because we can run MS Office 2011 on our Macs, Windows XP and Windows 7 inside VMs or via Boot Camp and much more.

Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Connector 1.0 is not the kind of productivity software, we would expect from MS. Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Connector 1.0 is like a translator plugin within MS Office, it provides essential compatibility for those users, who cannot or do not want to use MS Windows.

@MS: Why not update WMP for Mac to the latest version of the WMP framework? Snow Leopard should have some interesting APIs, including hardware accelerated H.264 decoding. Code from that could be reused in your Silverlight for Mac plugin.

Btw, it is obvious i come from a audio/video corner, so i want to speak about my decoder recommendations:
- On Windows XP SP3 or newer try the CCCP to decode your video and audio files. With your custom configuration, it is almost flawless.
- On Mac OS X 10.5.x or newer, try Perian to decode your video and audio files.

I'm also a software developer. I find the availability of older APIs within Windows amazing. It makes it much easier to maintain your application code. Within Apples software APIs, no one can be sure that they exist in coming versions of Mac OS X, despite the fact that Mac OS X uses enhanced compilers and file system compression, which both are able to reduce the size of executable files or entire final .app packages.

Are you kidding? Or more likely, trolling?
So no Mac versions of MeGUI or AviSynth? Gee, I wonder if that's because there are BETTER native OS X apps to perform the functions of those programs.
Oh, and BTW, the topic here is NOT the comparative AV software offerings of Mac and Windows, but this specific software that is aimed at a non-existant audience.
Seriously, what Mac owner is going to want to own a Windows Phone 7 phone?
On second thought, I *can* think of an audience for this - Microsoft employees who are given free Windows Phone 7 phones with the "suggestion" that they not use any other brand of smartphone, but who are secret Mac owners at home.

@PAULIMPOLA:
That is why i thought i should add a big fat warning at the beginning of my comment/review, that my comment/review requires some serious background in Mac/Microsoft software history. I thought people would know as much is i do or more, and if not that they consult wikipedia. I "asked" too much.

And yet your "review" mentions the software in question only in passing, and it sounds like you have not in fact used it at all.
So what exactly is the point of your extensive comment? Why did you place it here, when it does not add *anything* to our fund of knowledge about this specific software?

MU admin should delete this. Worthless rambling about everything but the software in question.
