Mobile Support for SharePoint 2007

Mobile Support for SharePoint 2007

Today I did a demo on Mobile support for SharePoint 2007 for my customer It is very easy to configure and use Windows Mobile Emulator to test how the site will look like in mobile. 

All you need to do is to install the emulator and configure its network adapter and connect to your site using http://siteurl/m/ Below are the steps that I did to make it happened.

1.      First download the device emulator

2.      Then Microsoft Virtual Machine Network driver

      It required for the emulator to function. If you have Microsoft Virtual Server on the machine where you plan to install the PPC Emulator you will be ok, but if you don’t, please d/l it and install it.

    Download Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1

    3.      Install ActiveSync 4.5 (Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 only)
    ActiveSync 4.5 allows for connectivity between Visual Studio 2005 and devices based on Windows Mobile 6 and earlier.

      4.      Install .NET Compact Framework 2.0 SP2 Patch (Optional)
      The Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 SP2 Patch ensures that you have the latest version of the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 in your development environment.

        Thanks to Martin.Kearn for posting about how to configure your mobile device here and another post by Nick Kellet of Planet Moss on mobile for a step by step guide.

        I cant post the image of how my site looks because my Live writer is not working any more.  If anyone knows any other blog writer tool for live spaces please do let me know (I am on windows Server 2003 so cant use Live Writer latest)
