Hi all,

This is probably a very simple / silly question but for some reason i am struggling to find the answer.

We have Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008 SP1 and a number of enrolled devices.  No Gateway service at the moment as we are using a custom APN service to get internal access.  

What i need to know is can we use MDM to transfer non-CAB files to the Windows Mobile 6.1 devices without having to package them as an application that is 'installled'?

If so are there any limitations with file type / size?

Thanks!!
Dan

Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008 SP1 - it means Windows Mobile Center?
If it is, when a device is connected to you PC, you see its name - click on it, new window will jump up, you will see "connecting" in the left-down corner. When it will become connected you will see a menu on the left side of the window. There is an item "File transfer" - click on it. In the sub-menu choose Browse. You will see the file explorer. Copy your files into a folder on your device.

Hello,

Thanks for your response, but no, this is MDM.  It is an enterprise solution for entegration of Windows Mobile devices into Active Directory.

Thanks for your response though!!

Cheers,
