You can establish a connection to the Emulator with Microsoft® ActiveSync® 3.5. You cannot establish a connection with earlier versions of ActiveSync.

To configure the Emulator to establish a connection with ActiveSync

1. Connect two serial ports with a null modem cable.

2. On your development workstation, install ActiveSync3.5.

3. From the Target menu, choose Configure Remote Connection, and then choose the Services tab.

4. From the Download box, choose Emulator, and then choose Configure.

5. If KITL is built into your OS image, from the Serial Port 2 box choose COM1 or COM2, and then from the Serial Port 1 box choose None.
- or -

If KITL is not built into your OS image, from the Serial Port 1 box choose COM1 or COM2, and then from the Serial Port 2 box choose None.

6. Choose OK, and then choose OK again.

7. Configure ActiveSync 3.5 to connect to the serial port — either COM1 or COM2 — that you did not assign to the Emulator.

did you do this??
To open the SDK command prompt, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft Pocket PC SDK, and then click Pocket PC SDK.
Run emuascfg, specifying the /PPC flag for the Pocket PC emulator, and then press ENTER.
Note   The use of emuascfg is dependent on having the .NET Framework installed. Otherwise, the "The dynamic link library mscoree.dll could not be found..." error message appears. If you need to download and install the .NET Framework, visit the .NET Framework Software Development Kit Version 1.1 download page.

When the command is finished running, close the command prompt window.
In ActiveSync, in the Connection Settings dialog box, confirm that Allow Network (Ethernet) and Remote Access Service (RAS) server connection with this desktop computer is selected.
Switch to the emulator.
Open ActiveSync in the emulator.
Click Sync

 Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET does not support the virtual switch option.

EmuASCfg.exe—This tool configures ActiveSync and the Pocket PC emulator to allow establishment of an ActiveSync partnership over the Ethernet Virtual Switch. You must use eMbedded Visual C++ to boot the Pocket PC emulator using the VirtualSwitch option before running this tool. For usage information, type "emuascfg.exe /?" at the command line

a)one option can be  to share a folder and just send it there:

that means it only supports eVC++
doesn't work with VS.net, even VS.net 2003
