ActiveSync Remote Display

can someone to assist me in making this software work properly? and explained this in plain English.
If you see error message "The OS or CPU of this device is unknown to this
application", it usually means the CPU type of the current device, typically
a Windows CE device, is not recognized by this tool. The workaround is
1. Find the CPU type of the device (from the manual or the manufacturer).
2. Copy <ToolInstallDir>\Devices\wce400\<CPUType>\cerdisp2.exe to the \windows
folder of the device.
3. Run "cerhost2.exe -m" on the desktop/laptop.
4. Run cerdisp2.exe on the device.
5. When the remote display is no longer needed, terminate cerdisp2.exe on
the device. thank you Dale

Re: ActiveSync Remote Display

Hmmm... I've never been unfortunate enough to see that very technical error. But I would guess that it would be a good idea to make sure your PC has the the latest version of ActiveSync (a free download from Microsoft). You don't mention what type of Pocket PC or smartphone this is, but all the ones made in the past 3 years or so have used an ARM family CPU. So if the error message you've pasted is on target, you might have to look for a folder called ARM in the desktop installation mentioned in 2.

Re: ActiveSync Remote Display

So that's a Microsoft PowerToy for Windows Mobile, right? I have never used it but it sounds to me like you need to look in the remote ActiveSync installation directory on your PC, god to the devices subfolder, then the wce400 folder. Inside there you should see a folder name that has the word ARM in it. Open that folder and copy the file cerdisp2.exe from there to the Windows folder on your Axim.
