Window 8.1

description

I have been using this dll under Windows 7 and worked well. I cannot get it to work under windows 8.1. Anyone know why or when updated is to be expected?

Did you install Mobile Device Center?

Yes I did. WMDC works like it is supposed to. My program has run since Windows XP and Active Sync. I have updated some dll's and I am using the latest version of the OpenNETCF Desktop Com dll. Everything work on Vista, Windows 7 32 & 64 bit but not on Windows 8 or 8.1 64bit.

See either one of this work:
  1. Is your device installed correctly in device manager? Certain handheld device driver might not installed properly due to the legacy driver policy settings in Win8. Disable the security setting for legacy driver. This case happen to Argox device.
  2. Go to Windows Explorer and see if you can view your device content, any folder found? If not found that's means either cable connection problem, legacy driver problem.
  3. For Motorola MC2180 handheld, if you have enable WIFI/LAN connection on PC and also WIFI connection at handheld, then it might conflict. Try to disable PC and handheld WIFI/LAN, then reconnect.
  4. Try disable PC firewall.
  5. Try to reset (cold reboot) the device and reconnect to PC again.
