How to connect PocketPC 2003 emulator to ActiveSync 4.0

Posted on 2006-05-16

I'm testing a third-party PPC application that requires a 2003 PPC device.  Since I don't have a PPC 2003 (I have a WM 5.0) I'm trying to use an emulator to test the app.

I have Visual studio .Net 2003, PocketPC 2003 Emulator, Microsoft Pocket PC 2003 SDK ("C:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce420\POCKET PC 2003\...") installed as well as a special shotcut that starts-up the emulator outside of the .NET IDE.   The emulator starts and seems to work fine.

However, I can't get the emulator to sync with ActiveSync 4.0

Any ideas?  Is this even possible to do?

Help!  Need a answer ASAP.

    You will need to install "Windows Mobile Developer Power Toys" to be able to perform Active Sync with the emulator, check my responses in the following two links --

    Also ensure that no firewall is blocking this operation see responses in below link -

    Microsoft has just released a stand alone emulator with all the OS images.
