Applies to: CETerm, CE3270, CE5250, CEVT220
When running setup with international versions of ActiveSync 3.1 installed on the desktop, the ActiveSync application manager is not launched. Additionally, the application manager might launch, but Naurtech application to install is not shown.
The problem stems from the fact that the Microsoft registry keys that indicate the install location of ActiveSync cannot be found.
NOTE: Throughout these instructions, we refer to CETerm. If you are using CE5250, CETerm, or CEVT220, simply replace CETerm with the name of the product you are using.
You can follow this procedure as a workaround.
- Extract all the Naurtech CETerm setup files in a separate directory on the desktop. For our example, we can assume this to be e: mp. This could be any directory within your environment.
- Connect the Windows CE / Pocket PC device to the desktop computer via active sync. This may be via a serial or USB cable
- On the desktop, find out the directory path where ActiveSync is installed. In our example, as shown, this is "d:Program FilesMicrosoft ActiveSync". You can do this by right mouse clicking the Active Sync icon on the desktop and selecting <properties> Shortcut as shown
- Open a MS Dos Command prompt. You can also do this by running "cmd.exe" by selecting Windows <Start><Run>
- From the command prompt, change your directory to where you extracted the Naurtech CETerm setup files. For example c:> cd e: mp
- This is the most important step. You have to run the ActiveSync application manager from the command line with the appropriate parameters. You can do this as shown. Remember to provide a complete path to the CETerm.ini file as shown.
- This will launch the ActiveSync application manager and install the Naurtech application. You should see the following.
- Select Yes.
