Installing the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync

Before you register your SQL Anywhere MobiLink client for use with Microsoft ActiveSync, you must install the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync using the installation utility (mlasinst.exe).

The SQL Anywhere for Windows Mobile installer installs the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync. If you install SQL Anywhere for Windows Mobile you do not need to perform the steps in this section.

When you have installed the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync you must register each application separately. For instructions, see Registering SQL Anywhere clients for Microsoft ActiveSync.

 ♦  To install the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync
  1. Ensure that you have the Microsoft ActiveSync software on your computer, and that the Windows Mobile device is connected.

  2. Run the following command to install the MobiLink provider:

    mlasinst -k desk-path -v dev-path

    where desk-path is the location of the desktop component of the provider (mlasdesk.dll) and dev-path is the location of the device component (mlasdev.dll).

    If you have SQL Anywhere installed on your computer, mlasdesk.dll is located in install-dir\bin32; mlasdev.dll is located in install-dir\CE. If you omit -v or -k, these directories are searched by default.

    If you receive a message telling you that the remote provider failed to open, perform a soft reset of the device and repeat the command:

    For more information, see Microsoft ActiveSync Provider Installation utility (mlasinst).

  3. Restart your computer.

    Microsoft ActiveSync does not recognize new providers until the computer is restarted.

  4. Enable the MobiLink provider.

    • In the Microsoft ActiveSync window, click Options.

    • Check the MobiLink item in the list and click OK to activate the provider.

    • To see a list of registered applications, click Options again, choose the MobiLink provider, and click Settings.

      For more information about registering applications, see Registering SQL Anywhere clients for Microsoft ActiveSync.
