Question :

Windows Mobile Device Emulator – how to save config permanently?,

Answer :

I am working at a client site where there is a proxy server (HTTP) in place. If I do a hard reset of the emulator it forgets network connection settings for the emulator and settings in the hosted Windows Mobile OS. If I ‘save state and exit’ it will lose all of these settings. I need to do hard resets regularly which means that I lose this information and spend a lot of time setting:

  • The emulators associated network card
  • DNS servers for network card in the WM OS.
  • Proxy servers in connection settings of WM OS.
