Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 Update 1

This document provides useful information for end users and IT professionals to successfully update Microsoft® Pocket PC 2002 with the Microsoft® Server ActiveSync® client. It also outlines improvements to the Pocket PC 2002 software included in the update.

New Feature

·      Microsoft® Server ActiveSync® client gives users the ability to synchronize directly through Microsoft® Mobile Information 2002 Server with their Microsoft® Exchange Server.

Improvements

·      Improved support for Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connections to correct problems experienced when connecting to read e-mail or browse the Web while away from the office.

·      Improved connection support in instances where a specific Internet Protocol (IP) address must always be used. Connection Manager no longer reverses static IP addresses and Domain Name System (DNS) server names.

·      Improved Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) support for additional programs you can download or buy for your Pocket PC 2002. If you encountered problems with new programs crashing on your device, this update will help prevent future crashes.

·      Improved viewing of Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) pages.

·      Improved e-mail support for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) servers.

For more information about these improvements, see Improvement Details.

Setup and Installation

The enclosed PPCEUU1.CAB file includes both the Microsoft Server ActiveSync client and the feature improvements described earlier. Once installed, the device will permanently store the changes in flashable ROM, saving the device RAM for applications and program memory.

  1. Be sure to back up all of the data on the Pocket PC 2002 before beginning the installation process.
  2. Ensure that the device has a minimum of 9 MB of free system RAM*. (Refer to your owner’s manual on how to free up additional memory.) The required memory is used only for the installation and will be available again once the setup has completed.
  3. Be sure to keep the device plugged into your power adaptor during the updating process.

* System RAM is RAM available to the device apart from additional RAM storage cards.  

Updating your Pocket PC while connected to the Internet or intranet

1.      Ensure that the device is connected to the Internet or intranet through either a modem or LAN card.

2.      On the device, open Microsoft® Pocket Internet Explorer and enter the URL to the Update page. (Consult your system administrator if you are not sure of the URL.)

3.      Navigate to the appropriate page to locate the PPCEUU1.CAB file.

4.      Download the file.

5.      Answer “Yes” in the dialog box when prompted.

The .cab file will open and install automatically. Answer questions when prompted during setup.

WARNING: Do not attempt to turn off or reboot the device while the update is in progress.

Updating your Pocket PC while connected to a desktop computer

1.      Ensure that the device is docked and connected to a desktop computer that has Microsoft ActiveSync installed and running.

2.      On the desktop computer, open your Internet browser and enter the URL to the Update page. (Consult your system administrator if you are not sure of the URL.)

3.      Download the file to the desktop computer.

4.      Open Microsoft ActiveSync and click the Explore button.

5.      On the desktop computer, drag and drop the PPCEUU1.CAB file onto the Mobile Device window.

6.      On the Pocket PC, tap Start > Programs > File Explorer.

7.      In File Explorer, tap PPCEUU1.CAB.

The .cab file will open and install automatically. Answer questions when prompted during setup.

WARNING: Do not attempt to turn off or reboot the device while the update is in progress.

Improvement Details

PPP Networking

Problem:

PPP fails to work when the PPP server does not provide a gateway IP address. PPP links, such as General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) connections, typically do not require a gateway; therefore, PPP servers do not have to provide a gateway IP address.

Improvement:

This problem has been corrected by inserting a gateway address in routing tables if no gateway address is provided.

Any user-defined static DNS entry is always overridden automatically when establishing a PPP connection. This prevents proper DNS configuration if the remote access server (RAS) called does not provide DNS information.

Internet Protocol Control Protocol (IPCP) now requests DNS only when a user-defined static DNS is not provided by the user.  

Connection Manager

Problem:

IP addresses are reversed each time they are viewed in Connection Manager. As a result, connections to Internet sites that require static IP addresses, may fail.

Improvement:

With this update, Connection Manager now prevents reversing IP addresses.

POOM

Problem:

POOM (Pocket Outlook Object Model) crashes if accessed through scripting.

 Improvement:

With this update, the problem has been corrected.

WAP

Problem:

When visiting a Wireless Markup Language (WML) page that contains extended characters, the following error message is generated:

The page contains errors and cannot be displayed.

This problem occurs only when the page is encoded in Universal Character Set Transformation Format 8 (UTF-8) by a WAP gateway. This does not affect Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) Web browsing or navigating directly to a WAP page without a gateway.

Improvement:

With this update, WML browsing over WAP now works correctly.

Inbox

Problem:

E-mail messages cannot be sent through SMTP mail servers that send more than one response line upon initial connection. The following error message is generated:  

The message(s) could not be sent.  Verify that you have network coverage and that your account information is correct and then try again.

Improvement:

With this update, Inbox now reads the entire response from the SMTP server.
