Display or control Field PC on desktop PC, monitor, projector

June 2007

Note: This information is provided as a reference and does not imply that Juniper Systems will provide full support for the use of any specific third-party hardware or software with a Juniper Systems product.


A Microsoft Windows desktop PC can be used to control a Field PC from Juniper Systems, Inc. through an Internet, network, ActiveSync, or other connection method. One situation where this can be useful is when a Field PC user is in the field and needs remote help desk assistance with the Field PC. Or it can be useful when training a user on how to use the Field PC.


Remote Control Software


Below are listed some Microsoft Windows desktop applications for remote controlling a Microsoft Windows Mobile device.



Note: With the Archer Field PC, before ARD will run you need to copy the "cerdisp2.exe" and "KillProc.exe" files from the \devices\wce400\armv4 folder in the directory where ARD has been installed on your desktop PC, to the \Windows folder on the Archer.


Many mobile device management (enterprise security) systems offer an integrated remote control support feature. See a list of options at the following article.


Enterprise security integration


Remote Viewing Hardware


Below are listed some Microsoft Windows desktop applications and hardware (SD and CF cards) for viewing the Windows Mobile device screen (not controlling) on a desktop PC display.



Note: Most remote control and viewing applications transfer a lot of data through a data connection at the same time (high bandwidth), which can drain the battery quickly. It is recommended to connect the Field PC to an external power supply if using a remote control or viewing application for an extended period of time. Please visit our "Third-party or custom power supply" FAQ webpage for more information.
