    I developed an pocket pc 2003 application which produces files. these files
    will be send to a pc.

    I have the next problem,

    i disable all tasks (except files) for synchronisation. so my documents is
    the only synch map.
    if i connect the device to the cradle, first it is searching to changed
    files etc.

    then it synch the files in my documents dir.

    this all takes about 20/30 seconds.

    i would like to change it so that it directly sends the files to the pc
    within 5 seconds or something.
    the files are small (1kb *.txt)

    Do I have to delete activesync and make my own activesync?
    If yes, can someone show me how to detect the craddle and send the files
    i saw something about CeRunAppAtEvent. but it starts an application,
    i would like to start a function in my program.

    Can someone please show sample code or point me in the direction?

    Are you doing this just for yourself? If not, I think you are stuck with
    AS. PPC users will typically have that installed, and set to sync upon
    connection. Expecting them to not use AS or turn off all functions except
    files, or your own sync conduit, isn't going to be practical.

    While I won't say it is impossible, I don't think there is any direct
    connection option for the PPC that doesn't use AS to set up the IP structure
    that allows data transfer. At least not on a PC, the Mac and Linux options
    must obviously being doing something else.

    You might get more technical help in the developer forum.

    Thanks for your reply Sven,

    Is there a possibilty to synch directly the content of my doc.
    and disable all other functions from as? so the sync. is finished within 5
    seconds or something?

    I would suppose there is, but you should ask the developers. I think there
    likely is because Repligo has the option of writing the 'printed' file
    directly to the device, about anywhere you want. I have a couple of PPCs
    that do not have anything set in the sync options, and they 'sync' quite
    quickly. There is also the option of setting up a kiosk sort of mode where
    the device automatically connects as a guest, on purpose. Chris DeHerrera's
    site has the information on that. In any of these cases though, they
    wouldn't likely be the way in which the average user has things set up, so
    it would be for a fairly unique or specific application.
