Windows Mobile Write File To Host PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    We have written a barcode scanning solution for Windows Mobile 6.  Once the user has scanned all the products we would then like to be able to create a file directly on the host PC (connected via USB).  We can get this working in our development environment by creating a share on the host PC and then streaming a file directly to that share from the mobile device.  This is however causing us problems on customer sites.  Is there a better way to do this that anyone can recommend?

     

    Thanks

  • Consider flipping it and making PC to retrieve files instead, e.g. using RAPI.

    Can you use a wireless connection (e.g. WiFi) to get to the share?

  • you can follow the sample in http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4785711/how-to-transfer-file-from-pc-to-windows-mobile-and-from-windows-mobile-to-pc

    use RAPI in OpenNETCF to write file in PC.
