ActiveSync connection works, but eVB Platform Manager connection does not

I have created an ActiveSync connection that is working fine (actually several after deleting and re-creating as well), but I cannot get the Platform Manager (embedded Visual Basic 3.0) to connect to my Pocket PC (Symbol PPT 2700). Nevertheless, the emulator works great. When testing the connection in the Platform Manager I get: "Unable to connect to the device. Please make sure you have installed the underlying transport (e.g., ActiveSync) and have a device connected." The error is titled "cemgrui". When attempting to run the Hello World program, I get a similar message with the ErrorCode=0xLX. I have checked support.microsoft.com to find a possible error, but no luck in fixing it yet. I have recreated this same process on Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows XP - all with the same results except Windows 98 does not support the emulator. Any help would be appreciated - thanks in advance for your time and efforts.

I have solved this problem myself. Turns out the PPT 2700 is a "Palm-size PC" instead of a "Pocket PC". Once I began using the correct SDK, everything was good.

I will ask to have this question deleted asap.
