Being a little useless here, may I suggest that you try to re-install
AvantGo on both sides (desktop and handheld)? It sounds as if a 'rotten'
state may have been reached as "Database open failed" might suggest.

I used to be using AvantGo and never had a problem. Fixing things 'by hand'
is often more time-consuming (overall, as in many aspects of computing)
than a re-installation that kicks things back into working order with a
default behaviour. As your channels and information are on the Web, none
will be lost apart from application-specific settings like fonts.

Hope it helps,


PS - Apologies if the answer does not serve any practical purpose or solves
the problem directly.
