What is it?

CEDeploy is a command-line utility for deploying files to mobile device emulators from the host side, without any need for Active Sync. It does its magic via the Core Connectivity (CoreCon) interface - like the Remote File Viewer does.

SourceFileName and DestinationFileName are required. Use quotes for names with spaces.

Note on emulator enumeration

The version of Microsoft Device Emulator Manager that comes with Visual Studio 2005 does not have a COM interface; the one that comes with VS2008 does. You can tell by checking the properties of C:\Program Files\Microsoft Device Emulator\1.0\dvcemumanager.exe - the one with the interface would start with 9 (9.0.20404.0 on my system). Unless you have this version, the notion of "running emulator" is not supported - CoreCon does not report if the specific emulator is running or not.

Terms of use

Freeware. Download it and use it all you want. E-mail me at if you have troubles.

Deprecation note

I've heard that CoreCon will be phased out in CE 6.0 (Windows Mobile 7).
