Smartphone 2003 SE emulator does not connect to internet RRS feed

  • User-884877936 posted
    I am having problems connecting to the internet using the Smartphone 2003 SE emulator(the one comes with VS 2005). 
    I tried doing the following (found at http://blog.connectedbits.com/articles/2005/11/28/visual-studio-2005-emulator-connectivity) but still does not work.
  • Install the VM network driver
  • From within VisualStudio, Tools->Options… Device Tools, Devices, select the emulator, click the Properties button
  • On the properties dialog, choose DMA transport and the click Emulator Options button
  • On the options dialog, check “Enable NE2000 PCMCIA network adaptor and bind to:” and choose “Connected network card”
  • Now close the dialogs and launch the emulator (Tools->Connect to Device… / Connect / OK, or just click the toolbar button on the 2nd row that looks like a little PPC with a 110v plug)
  • From within the emulator image (2003SE edition for this example), Start->Settings->More…->Data Connections, Menu->Edit Connections->Proxy Connections, Menu->Add.
  • Add the new proxy: “Proxy” Connects from: “Work”, Connects to: “The Internet”, and choose Done. Then, Done, Done, Done, Done
I keep getting this error "the requested url could not be retrieved" when starting the Internet Explorer from the emulator.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Check the steps I listed in response to your other question. With those, I can access internet using Pocket PC 2003 emulator.

    If you cradle the device does ActiveSync / Mobile Device Center see the connection?

    Thank you for responding!
    No. It says "not connected" when I go to select Start\ActiveSync on the device.  And If
    I go even further within the same screen by selecting Menu\Connect via DMA, it also says "not connected"
    Do you have any suggestions?
    Also, which emulator works for you?
