ActiveSync for x86 procesor

I am a software engineer in South Africa. I am relatively new to Windows CE and is currently working on a project, designing an OS for a new h/pc that we are developing. I want to find out if any of you know of a version of ActiveSync that was written for a h/pc with a x86 processor? The problem is that the OS uses Windows CE and the Desktop uses win98/2000 etc.

Hi Joe,

You can download ActiveSync from Microsoft Site:

ActiveSync is always used on Desktop and works in Windows 95/98, ME, 2000, NT.

The Windows CE device never uses ActiveSync, but uses communications ports (COM, USB, etc..) to communicate with the Desktop PC that has ActiveSync installed.


Everything to have these working on CE macine side is on that ROM chip on those ready CE macines.

The ActiveSync is a desktop macine targetted componet to convert file formats and organize the data of both macines.

The ActiveSync do save the macine name info and ID on the desktop and CE machine, uses registry.
