Mimer SQL on Windows
Handheld Emulators

Mimer SQL Mobile supports a large number of emulators in the Windows environment. These emulators are used with Visual Studio 2005.

Pocket PC emulators and Smartphone 2003 emulators

Emulators from the following software development kits may be used with Mimer SQL Mobile:

  • Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Pocket PC
  • Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Smartphone
  • SDK for Windows Mobile 2003-based Pocket PCs
  • SDK for Windows Mobile 2003-based Smartphones

To work with an emulator, you perform the following steps:

  1. Start the Device Emulator Manager on the Visual Studio 2005 tools menu.
  2. Right click on an emulator and choose Connect.
  3. When the emulator is running right click again and choose Cradle. At this point ActiveSync should start and connect to the emulator. If it does not, make sure that the Connection Settings on the File menu in ActiveSync allows connections to DMA.
  4. If Mimer does not automatically start a Mimer installation choose Add/Remove programs on the Tools menu in ActiveSync. Install Mimer by checking the appropriate check-boxes.
  5. In the Mimer Administrator create a Remote database with protocol set to Rapi.
  6. You will be prompted to:
    • Create a database definition on the device (emulator in this case).
    • Create a database directory on the device.
    • Export database files to the device.
  7. Test the Mimer installation on the device with, for example, the Mimer Explorer.
  8. Deploy and run your Mimer SQL Mobile applications on the emulator.
