Let me go eat super...might be the order in which the cab file is doing things...let me set the dll to run after everything is copied over...

It looks as though it is the delete file process.

I've inverted the handle termination / file deletion sequence and corrected the typo

Okay, here is a screenshot of the install process:

There is nothing else...no warning, no windows, no nothing...

And to just make sure, I deleted manually every dll that was in the cab file, performed a hard reset on my tablet, then deleted the partnership in Activesynch...in other words everything. Also deleted the Gemini PIMS.

Then I ran the cab file (attached) installed the Gemini PIMS via USB memory card, and then plugged in the serial cable. Created a new Activesync partnership and this is what I got during the sync...

Are we done now?

That sounds like it has completed OK then!

Here is version 6 which should present a success message

If you're happy, I'm happy.

Do I need to invoke a reboot on it or is it good to go?

It is good to go! No reboot necessary on this machine as it flushes the registry with every change. Here are some images for you...

Showing successful installation, showing what happens when you remove it through the control panel...and the final cab file.

The things we do to make CEGeek happy....

Sweet! Makes me feel all warm and geeky inside. Thanks for the screenies.

Great work here guys

I'll update the DLC entry now and perhaps we can get it added as a "HPC:Factor update" to H/PC:Update for any related devices?

Once you stop trying to send a LPPROCESS_INFORMATION by reference to a PROCESS_INFORMATION parameter (*doh*), it's not too difficult to write the setup.dll; that is if you bother to read the manual.

Reminds me of about 1,000,000 years ago when I made the CE 2.0 NSP.

I dunno - I thought my way was simpler than all this . . .

Another small typo to correct - on the bottom of the tutorial page. It's CE Geek. I deny any association with General Electric.

Maybe now we can go back to talking about Rich's review of the NEC S1596-01.

Well that's gratitude for you isn't it!

Rich and I slog our guts out so that you can experience synchronisation in less than 4 taps and what do we get? You disown the General Electric company.

Is the NEC S1596-01 one of the devices this works on? Know of any others and I'll H/PC:Update it.

Uh, I seem to recall Rich mentioning something about that earlier in this thread.

Synchronizable CE 5 and 6 devices I've done this successfully on:

CE 5
Fourier Nova 5000
Widefly WF35
Augen eGo
O-Digital TinyBook T700
Robert Dyas CUOL Book
Wasp Technologies WPA1200

CE 6
SmartDevices SmartQ V7
DT Research WebDT 430

All of these except the WPA1200 and the DT 430, however, dump the databases on reboot, so I have to back the databases up whenever they change, and I've set up a link in \Windows\StartUp to a self-executing backup from bUSEFUL Backup Plus to restore them on each reboot.

Just checking to make sure

Of your list the only devices in D&S are:
Augen eGo
NEC Mobile Terminal

So I can't add the update to them via H/PC:Update until they're added to D&S *whistles*

Sounds like your backup trick could use a CESD of its own too!

One thing the review didn't mention that I found out (when I got a lot of four of these cheap) is that the USB host port on the device itself doesn't seem to do anything, despite USB host drivers present in \Windows for keyboard and mouse (usbhid.dll) and for mass storage (usbdisk.dll, usbdisk6.dll, and usbmsc.dll). After enabling the USB host driver in Maintetool.exe (under RAS), when you plug in any one of these, after a few seconds you get the acknowledgment sound like with the Deje USB mass storage driver, but a keyboard or mouse do nothing, and a USB flash drive doesn't show up in any file explorer including the native Windows Explorer.

Still a nice device, though.
