Fail to connect to emulator RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've got a problem, I can connect with emulator using IDE command "tools - conncet to device", when ActiveSync4.0 is in "not connected" state. I'm wondering whether Visual Studio is linked to emulator using ActiveSync? So what is the relationship among Emuator, Device emulator manager, AtctiveSync 4.0 and Visual Studio?

    Is it using following order to link together?
    Visual Studio --> ActiveSync --> real device  and
    Visual Studio --> ActiveSync --> Device Emulator Manager --> Emulator

    And what's about DMA?
    When using DMA transport, are the ActiveSync and IP configuration  still neccessory?
    When Emulator is bind to Loopback Adapter, Which of the DMA and Tcp/Ip protocol is needed?

    thanks.

  • The picture looks something like that:

    ActiveSync Connectivity
    -----------------------
    Visual Studio-> ActiveSync -> cradled real device
    Visual Studio-> ActiveSync-> SerDMAASPlugin.dll-> DMA COM interface-> emulator
                         Device Emulator Manager ^

    Where Device Emulator Manager tells the SerDMAASPlugin.dll which emulator the user currently wants to cradle.

    DMA connectivity
    -----------------
    Visual Studio-> DMA Transport-> DMA COM interface-> emulator

    TCP Connectivity
    ----------------
    Visual Studio-> TCP Transport-> TCP Stack/Network ->Virtual Switch Driver-> emulator

    Thanks,
