Thursday, July 28, 2005 9:09 AMIs there some special order of installing the differnt programms?
I'd like to have
VS2005 beta2 (Team Suite Edition)
Active Sync 4.0
Device SDK 5.0
But I'm not able to get it working (the connection between Device Emulator &
Active Sync & VS2005)
I always get a "Cannot Connect Error!"

One possibility is that you are using an emulator entry that is not using the DMA transport. You can verify this by going into the "Tools" menu, options, devices, devices, and by clicking "Pproperty" of the emulator in question. Make sure "Dma Transport" is selected, then restart the emulator. This will ensure you are using the dma transport.
Another way to connect to the emulator is to use ActiveSync through the Device Emulator Manager, available from the "Tools" menu as well. From the manager, you can virtually craddle an emulator so that ActiveSync will connect to it. You can use the "Get Connected" wizard from ActiveSync, or select the "DMA" option in the connection settings. Note that ActiveSync only supports one connected device at a time, so make sure you do not have any connected device when you do this. Afterward, you will be able to use the "Device" entry in Visual Studio, just as if you had a real device connected to your computer.

Hopefully it stays this way!

I have tried to connect using the Device Emulator Manager, then cradled the Pocket PC 2003 SE Emulator (installed with VS2005 Std) and I don't get the "Get Connection" wizard. Instead I used the DMA option, and after repeated attempts, I still get "not connected". Where's the wizard and why cant DMA option connect?
BTW, I have verified that DMA Transport is selected in DEM Options for the emulator selected (Tools> Options> Device Tools> Devices). Still no-go.
How can I verify that I have all necessary components? What could be causing the consistent "not-connected" status?

I got through this a few days ago..
Last point -
kill wcescomm.exe (which is active sync) from task mgr
run start - run - regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Device Emulator\1.0\SERDMAAsPlugin.dll"
Without that, DMA does not appear in the comm ports list in active sync
After doing that, start the app, and then start tools, device emulator manager, right click your running device and click "Cradle". then you should be able to see it from activesync assuming you have disconnected and removed your real pda

What is required for DMA support to be installed with active sync?
do you need to install the SDKs?.
Our QA guy, cannot see the DMA as an option, and we need it to do some of our testing.

I thought it appeared when you installed the emulator. We have pcs without the emulator that don't show dma. Our vs2005 PCs all have smart devices support and they have dma listed in active sync.
Here's my notes on how to install from clean machine...
AFTER REINSTALL, I had to do the following:
- regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Device Emulator\1.0\SERDMAAsPlugin.dll"
- Deploy to the device
- Write a sep app which references all teh same stuff to solve the problem of deploying system DLLs every time
- Cradle the emulator
- Enable DMA in activesync
- Change networking on the scanner so that internet and connections connect to WORK

That did the trick.
