Copy file from Windows Mobile 6.1 to PC from device RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have done a lot of research on this and I have only found information that is over a year old. So I wanted to ask this quesiton to see if an answer has been found because I have not found one through trial and error nor research.

    I am writing an application that is going to be deployed to a mobile device running Windows Mobile 6.1 using Compact Framework 3.5. When the device is connected to the PC, ActiveSync makes the connection and everything is well and good. There is a button in the application I am writing that the user can click called "Send Data" When that button is clicked, I want the device to copy some files from itself to the PC.

    I have found that copying files to and from the device can be done if you use the OpenNETCF.Desktop.Communication.dll. However, it can only be done if the application that is being written is going to be run on the PC and NOT the device.

    Is there a way to programatically (using C#) copy files from the device to the PC using an application that is run from the device?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you very much!
