How to connect PocketPC 2003 emulator to ActiveSync 4.0


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.

Forget the above links

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