Installing Palm USB 64-Bit Driver For Palm Desktop On 64-Bit version of Windows OS

If you are having trouble hotsyncing your Z22 ID scanner, it may be because you are using a 64bit windows operating system.   The Palm Desktop software is compatible with 64bit operating systems, but the USB hotsync drivers supplied with the Palm Desktop are 32 bit driers so a 3rd party, Aceeca has developed a 64bit USB driver that works with Palm Desktop Hotsync manager.

To install it, please follow the instructions below after downloading this file:
