Alternatives to Windows Mobile Device Center

April 2017

Microsoft officially ended support for Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC, formerly ActiveSync) in Windows Vista. For newer operating system versions, if possible it is highly recommended to use an alternative. Some alternatives are as follows.

 

Connecting a USB Flash Drive to the USB Host port on the rugged handheld computer (handheld) allows you to use File Explorer or some other tool for moving files and installing software applications (apps).

 

Many software apps for the handheld have been written to be able to use a direct Internet or network connection on the handheld. Such a connection may be established on the handheld using Wifi, cellular modem, or through an Ethernet dock. A general utility for this purpose is available at the following web page.

An inserted MicroSDHC card in the handheld may be directly accessed from a desktop computer through the USB Client port on the handheld by enabling it on the handheld under Start > Settings > Connections > USB to PC icon > "SD Card - Use as external drive (Mass Storage)".

 

File Explorer in Windows Mobile provides a Bluetooth file transfer (OBEX/OPP) function. When you tap and hold on a file, you can then tap on the Send option in the menu that appears. The Bluetooth on a receiving computer must be set to be visible and able to receive files.

 

Further details and additional options may be provided in the product manual or by contacting support@junipersys.com.
