Contexte et remarques

You can register your application for use with Microsoft ActiveSync either by using the Microsoft ActiveSync provider install utility or using the Microsoft ActiveSync software itself.

  1. Ensure that the MobiLink provider for Microsoft ActiveSync is installed.

  2. Start the Microsoft ActiveSync software on your desktop computer.

  3. For Windows versions before Vista:

    • From the Microsoft ActiveSync window, choose Options.

    • From the list of information types, choose MobiLink and click Settings.

    • In the MobiLink Synchronization window, click New.

    For Windows Vista or later:

    • From the Windows Mobile Device Center window, click Mobile Device Settings and then click Change Content Settings.

    • Click Change Content Settings.

    • Click MobiLink Clients.

    • Click Sync Settings.

  4. Enter the following information for your application:

    • Application name   A name identifying the application to be displayed in the Microsoft ActiveSync user interface.

    • Class name   The class name for the dbmlsync client, as set using the -wc option.

    • Path   The location of the dbmlsync application on the device.

    • Arguments   Any command line arguments to be used when Microsoft 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.

  5. Click OK to register the application.


The SQL Anywhere client is registered for use with Microsoft ActiveSync.
