Deploying to device without ethernet


J

John Funderburg

I want to develop a Pocket PC Phone Edition app using Visual Studio .NET and
Compact Framework, but VS can't connect to my Samsung i700.

VS tries to connect over TCP, but this phone can only be connected over USB.
Also, this phone only has SD slot so no way to add ethernet support.

Has anyone else found a way to develop/deploy to devices without ethernet?

Thanks in advance,
John

Pretty much all devices can be connected to ActiveSync via USB. In fact it's
ethernet connection which is a source of most headaches. Make use that USB
is enabled in activesync settings; try using Get Connected option and make
sure that you can see your device in Device Manager.

There is a known issue with debugging when the PC doe not have a network
card - the debugger is unable to start the session. TO resolve this problem
install MS Loopback adapter and assign an address (e.g. 192.168.0.1) to it

Did you install ActiveSync after Visual Studio? In that case you may need to
reinstall VStudio
