Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I need to develop a synchronization provider that will allow me to sync contacts from a Windows Mobile Device to my application in Windows Vista. 

    What functions should I call to get / set contacts in my Windows Mobile Device from the Vista PC?
    Which DLL needs to be linked to have access to that function?

    Thank You

  • Hi, Kevlar


    You can use the Smart Device Connectivity API which lets you detect devices, connect to a device, and exchange data with the device. In fact, the Visual Studio and other products make use of the Connectivity API to communicate with devices. I’d like to refer you to the following article for more details:

    The following walkthrough will give you the idea to accomplish your task via the Connectivity API:
