ActiveSync installation issue on a Mac OS X


N

Neville Lang

Hi all,

I have a Pocket PC app that I sell to consumers. My app is on a CD therefore
depends on using RAPI and ActiveSync for its installation since it has EXEs
on both the desktop computer and the Pocket PC that enable interworking with
a third party app in Windows on the desktop.

I have a customer query about installing my app. They have reported that
they cannot install MS ActiveSync on a Mac OS X. My customer has a Dell Axim
X50 and they use a piece of software called Missing Sync to sync the MS
programs to Outlook on the Mac - everything works well there. They have also
installed Virtual PC 7 and run some Windows packages without a problem.

Does anyone know why MS ActiveSync cannot be installed onto a Mac OS X?
Unfortunately, I do not have any error messages to pass on at this stage but
merely wanted to know whether anybody has a Pocket PC app using the Mac OS X
configuration.

Regards,
Neville Lang

Hi all,

While thinking on this issue, another question arose as to whether the full
..NET Framework will work under Virtual PC 7 on the Mac OS X. Does anyone
have any experience of this?

The reason I ask is that while I depend on ActiveSync for installation, I
also depend on the full .NET Framework on the desktop due to EXEs I have
there.

There's no AS for Mac, hence the "Missing sync".

You should consider creating native Mac installer which would use "Missing
sync" capabilities instead of AS.

Please see this for more details:
