ActiveSync Tweak

If you are like me, connecting, disconnecting, all day long, various Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices to you computer through ActiveSync, at each connection ActiveSync bother you make a partnership !
Partnership are nice while it's your personal or business device and you bring it everywhere with you to get an updated schedule and email... but while you are debugging applications, you don't want to be prompted.
ActiveSync have a "secret" registry key to always associate connected device as guest and will never prompt you anymore for any partnership.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows CE Services]
"GuestOnly"=dword:1

Set this value on your desktop computer and then plug your devices !!!

To revert this, just set GuestOnly to 0(zero) and partner ship will be enabled.
