You can register your application for use with ActiveSync either by using the ActiveSync provider install utility or using the ActiveSync software itself. This section describes how to use the ActiveSync software.
For information on the alternative approach, see ActiveSync provider installation utility [mlasinst].
Ensure that the MobiLink provider for ActiveSync is installed.
For information, see Installing the MobiLink provider for ActiveSync.
Start the ActiveSync software on your desktop machine.
From the ActiveSync window, choose Options.
From the list of information types, choose MobiLink and click Settings.
In the MobiLink Synchronization dialog, click New. The Properties dialog appears.
Enter the following information for your application:
Application name A name identifying the application to be displayed in the ActiveSync user interface.
Class name The class name for the dbmlsync client, as set using the -wc option.
For more information, see -wc option.
Path The location of the dbmlsync application on the device.
Arguments Any command line arguments to be used when ActiveSync starts dbmlsync.
You start dbmlsync in one of two modes:
If you specify scheduling options, dbmlsync enters hover mode. In this case, use the dbmlsync -wc option with a matching value in the class name setting.
Otherwise, dbmlsync is not in hovering mode. In this case, use -k to shut down dbmlsync.
For more information, see -k option (deprecated).
Click OK to register the application.
