Overview:

The Windows CE Services File Converter makes the task of converting files simpler-you can quickly convert files without connecting your PC and mobile device, and without using Windows CE Services Explorer. Files can be converted in place or converted and copied to a specified location, such as a PC storage card.
You can convert any file type that is convertible via Windows CE Services Explorer except TrueType font files (*.TTF) and Microsoft Windows font files (*.FON). These font files can only be converted using Windows CE Services Explorer. The following summarizes how to use the Handheld PC File Converter.

Note: Although Windows CE Services Explorer does not need to be running when you convert files with the Windows CE Services File Converter, Windows CE Services must be installed on the PC when you use this application.


Converting Files
You can select and convert multiple files that are multiple file types. Use one of the following methods:
Select and convert in place
In Windows Explorer, select the file(s) you want to convert and choose "Convert to/from Mobile Device Format" from the File menu or right-click the file(s) and choose the same command from the Context menu.
Right-Click Drag and Drop
In Windows Explorer, select the file(s) you want to convert and drag them while holding down the right mouse button to the folder or drive where you want the converted files to be stored. When you release the right mouse button, select "Convert to/from Mobile Device Format" from the Context menu.
Launch the Windows CE Services File Converter Dialog Box
When you open the Windows CE Services File Converter, a dialog that looks very much like the standard Open dialog is displayed. In the dialog, select the files you want to convert and choose "Convert." The converted files will be stored in the same directory as the original files. You can also drag and drop files on the Windows CE Services File Converter icon. Similarly, the files are converted and stored in the same directory as the original files.
Use the Command Line
Using this method, you can specify the source and destination directories for your files. In addition, you can specify a particular type of file to convert. The following shows the syntax for the command line:
WCESConv /d<destination> <sources>

To run the command line, choose Run from the Start menu and type the desired command in the Open box, or open a Command prompt window and type the desired command at the prompt. Some examples of syntax include:

WCESConv /dd:\ c:\docs\*.xls
(converts all xls files in the docs directory and copies them to the d: drive)

WCESConv /d. c:\docs\*.xls c:\docs\*.doc
(converts all xls and docs files in the docs directory and stores them in the current directory)

Note that if the WCESCONV.EXE file is not in your path, you must specify a directory when running the command line. For example:

"C:\Program Files\WCESConv\WCESConv" /d. "c:\My Documents\*.*"
(converts all files in the My Documents directory and stores them in the current directory)


Conversion Settings Used by the Converter
By default, the converter uses the default file conversion settings for the mobile device type that was last connected to your desktop or the laptop computer. It will use the default file conversion settings for the Handheld PC (H/PC) if you have not connected a mobile device previously.
You can use this converter even when you have a device connected to the desktop or laptop computer. In this case, the converter will use the file conversion settings for the connected device. Although, in this case, you transfer files directly to the connected mobile device.

System Requirements:

This download is for mobile devices running the Microsoft Windows CE 2.0 operating system only. Windows CE Services File Converter will not work on mobile devices powered by Windows CE 1.X.
