ActiveSync has been replaced with Windows Mobile Device Center on Windows Vista.
This is how to install RoboForm for Windows Mobile through Vista desktop:
RoboForm for Pocket PC faithfully reproduces RoboForm for desktop. However, you can only view RoboForm data on Pocket PC device, not edit it. Also RoboForm does not fill forms on Pocket PC, its primary function is to make portable Passcards, Safenotes and Identities that you accumulated on desktop.
Click Passcard (Star With Legs) icon in the bottom toolbar to see the list of Passcards and Bookmarks (saved passwords and URLs), or click Safenote (Note) button to see the list of Safenotes (encrypted text notes), or click Identity (Person) button to see the list of Identities and Contacts (address book entries). You can also select what to browse (Passcards, Safenotes, or Identities) in the upper right corner of the screen.
Note: SmartPhone version of RoboForm does not have toolbar with Passcards, Safenotes, Identities buttons.
Put related Passcards, Identities or Safenotes into a Folder on desktop and then browse folders on Pocket PC. Note that folder tree should be create on desktop and on Pocket PC you can only browse it. To get into the folder, tap the folder name. To one level up in the tree of folders, click the ".." item at the top. To get to the Home (Root) folder, click the Home icon. To open the file, tap the file name.
All Passcards, Identities and Safenotes that are password-protected on desktop are encrypted by Master Password on Pocket PC and opening them on Pocket PC requires entering Master Password. So even if your Pocket PC is stolen, nobody can steal your RoboForm data from Pocket PC. Note that you must create Master Password on desktop and sync to make MP available on Pocket PC.
When inside Passcard, Safenote or Identity, password protection status of the file is shown by Lock icon in the lower part of the screen. If Lock is locked and Yellow then the file is password protected and you can determine the encryption method by clicking the Lock icon. If Lock is gray and unlocked then the file is not password protected.
If Yellow Key icon shown in file navigator is enabled, it means that you entered Master Password and that it is cached in Pocket PC memory. Click the Yellow Key icon to clear (uncache) the password from memory. This is the same as Logoff command in desktop RoboForm.
Click RoboForm icon select Options.If "Require Password to open all files" option is checked then you will be asked for Master Password every time you open RoboForm application, even if your passcards are not password-protected. By default RoboForm requests Master Password only when opening password-protected files.
AES decryption may be slow on Pocket PC, because it requires a lot of arithmetic operations. If you feel that opening AES-protected passcards takes too much time on your device, reprotect passcards on desktop with weaker and faster encryption such as 3DES, then sync to Pocket PC and passcards will open faster.
Click Lightning icon on RoboForm toolbar and RoboForm full-featured Password Generator will appear.
Available commands: Generate.
Available options: password length, character classes.
Both RoboForm on desktop and RoboForm on Pocket PC use UNICODE to store characters, so international characters will be correctly shown on Pocket PC.

GoodSync has both a Free and Pro version available.
Unsigned ver 1.8.80 with built-in synchronize: RoboFormForPPC-1-8-80.exe
