Samsung SideSync issues with Windows PC?

I am having a difficult time sending files from my S5 to my Windows PC. I go to files (pictures) and attempt to share via....but SideSync does not appear in the list under share menu?

There are times that this happens and what you would need to do is actually open the camera file on your S5 to kind of activate it. Wait for a few seconds and then open the share menu again. You should be able to see it then without any problem.

If this still does not work, you may want to shut down your device to restart the whole system and then establish connection after that.

How can I solve SideSync issues between S4 and Samsung Ultrabook?

I have an S4 from Verizon with 4.4.2 and new download of SideSync 3.0.4.7. The new Samsung Ultrabook running Windows 8.1 won't connect. It shows "Connection failed: Please check if the SideSync is running normally on the phone". After a few attempts, the phone OS crashes.

I can not get Samsung SideSync to work?

I have installed versions on my Samsung Tablet and my Win 7 Ultimate desktop. I have set USB debugging on. When I connect Tablet it appears as a device, SM-T210 on my PC, and I can access the device as a hard drive. I have rebooted both devices (despair) but cannot get connection for SideSync to work.

Phone screen sharing app does not show up in Samsung store?

I have SideSync on my Samsung note book, and I have a Galaxy S4 phone. When trying to install the phone screen sharing app on my phone, it does not show up in the Samsung Apps store. What can I do?

It's possible that you're using a rooted Samsung Galaxy 4. In this case there may be occasions where you will not be able to access the Samsung Apps store. To check, try to download SideSync 3.0 for your Samsung Smartphone by following this link to download this app from Samsung Apps.

SideSync won't install on my HP Laptop w/Windows 8.1?

The installation program attempts to install Direct X 9 using dxwebsetup.exe (I used 7zip to look inside the file) and fails both because it won't install and because it isn't already installed. dxdiag shows version 11 installed and backwards compatible through version 8. The installer is SideSync_3.0.3.663.exe.

Hi, how are you, I have a problem with DirectX?

Here is my problem; SideSync tries to connect to the net to download and install DirectX but fails. I then tried to independently install Direct after doing a separate download but on trying to run SideSync installation for the second time it tells me that 'DirectX is not installed', so I'm in a blind alley now .

Trying to install Samsung SideSync (new version)?

I've uninstalled an older version of SideSync in order to install the new version. Now, after I've accepted the license agreement and selected where to have it, it installed itself (and also left create desktop and quick launch icons selected) I click the install button and the whole thing just disappears as if I never ran it at all. Doesn't even appear to be leaving any trail in event viewer and when I watched the resource monitor when it happened all it says is "terminated" as it gets greyed out and then disappeared from there, too. any ideas?. I have tried: Tried running as administrator and also reducing UAC settings to the lowest possible setting. Neither made any difference.. I think it was caused by: No idea what-so ever. I've even tried downloading the file from Samsung again and still nothing.
