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.
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.
ActiveSync 4.5 (Worldwide English=)
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.
I can’t 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 can’t use Live Writer latest)
