Copy a file from mobile device to PC
Posted on 2011-04-21
I'm working on a project using a Symbol MC3090 scanning gun (seen as a "mobile device" by Windows XP when connected to a PC via Microsoft ActiveSync). The handheld contains an application that produces a text file as output. I am trying to automate the copying of this text file to a folder on the PC. Since XP is not assigning a drive letter to the device, I cannot navigate to the file from the PC unless I do it manually through ActiveSync or from My Computer. I'm trying to automate this process so the user doesn't have to "Explore" the mobile device to find the file and manually copy/paste. Is there any utility out there that will do this? I considered using a macro builder of some sort, but not sure that's the best way to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
