I am using active sync 4.5 to synchronize between my mobile MC3000 Hand-held Device, I have six devices, and active sync is creating a separate sync folder for each device, can I change it, to use only one sync folder, or can I access the mobile device with a Batch file, I want to place the device on the cradle and Run my program to pull the data from a folder.

Any advice would be Helpful

Thanks

you can launch you program on device connection and disconnection if you define it in the following registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows CE Services\AutoStartOnConnect

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows CE Services\AutoStartOnDisconnect

In addition, using ceutil API (ceutil.h) you can detect which device is connected etc

I do not know where to lookup my device name, and even I no what it is, I don’t know how to browse to the device name Using commands.
I found a tool that uses a batch file to copy files or folders from Pc to Mobile device, but not from device to PC
