Motorola RemCapture - What am I doing wrong?
Posted on 2013-10-29
We are in the process of replacing our Datalogic Falcons with new, identically configured Motorola MC920N0s running WM 6.5. I received the first 4 last week and I've since set one up with the following changes:
added a wireless profile to the WLAN through the Wireless Companion
configured some barcode decoding options
installed StartUpCtrl v1.6
installed AppLauncher v1.5
configured StartUpCtrl to load DataWedge & AppLauncher
configured AppLauncher to restrict access to only IE
setup the IE start page to our warehouse management system
Everything is working fine on the first device. I then installed RemCapture v.20, unpacked another unit, dropped it in the cradle and used it to create a baseline. With the baseline loaded, I removed the 2nd device from the cradle, reinserted the 1st (configured) device, and created a difference.
So far so good--the problem comes in when I try to deploy the difference. I first put the device from which the baseline was created in the cradle and ran deploy to this. The deployment didn't generate any errors and the looking at the log, it seemed to be doing what it should. I pulled the device from the cradle and did a warm boot and none of the changes appeared to have been made. I performed a few warm boots and cold boots just to be sure. After that, I changed the RemCapture options to use a .cab file for deployment
and created a new baseline and difference and still deployment failed. Then I unpacked a third device, created a new baseline from that, created a new difference from the 1st device and still no luck!
Looking at /Application on the two devices I'd attempted deployment to, I see that there are .cpy and .reg files, prefixed with the difference name, as well as a directory for RemCapture. In startup, I see RCDeploy.exe which I'm assuming is responsible for copying the files as specified in the .cpy file and loading the registry changes from the .reg file.
Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? WM is one of the few OSes I have no experience with. I've read through the terse Motorola documentation, spent several hours searching the web for related information and I'm still at a loss where to even begin.
