Installing the Client Adapter
Connect your Windows CE device to a laptop or PC running Microsoft ActiveSync. This is typically
done using a serial or USB cable.
A message appears on the Windows CE device indicating that it is connecting to the host. After the
Windows CE device is connected, the New Partnership window appears on the laptop or PC. This
window asks if you want to set up a partnership.
Perform one of the following:
If you want to establish a partnership that enables you to synchronize files between the laptop or PC
and the Windows CE device, select Yes, click Next, and follow the instructions on the screen to
specify the files to be synchronized and to finish setting up the partnership.
If you do not want to synchronize files and want to connect as a "guest," select No and click Next.
The screen indicates that you are connected as a guest.
