I have a computer that runs Windows CE 5.0.

I need to get files from another computer (Under Windows XP or Windows 7) and copy them on this Windows CE computer.

My WinCE has the following Ip address : My Win7 has the following Ip address :

I created a folder share on my Windows 7 machine, with everyone having the read/right access. It is found under : "\WRKS-NTB-01\Share"

From my WinCE, I'm able to ping my Win7 but only when choosing its IP.

I cannot access the share when using the Explorer, I get the error "Cannot find the file on .......".

I tried to set my Win7 Ip address as DNS Server, WINS Server and Gateway server of my WinCE network card. Without success...

AFAIK, accessing network in this way is not possible in WinCE.

You can use: 1. ActiveSync 2. KITL 3. USB/SD card/UART (Depending on BSP support)

for file transfer.

Thank you for your answer. I finally chose to develop an application to synchronize ftps. I'm therefore synchronizing any computer with a FTP server with my WinCE (that has a ftp service). – Andy M May 5 '14 at 10:01

You can get information from this contents =>

"Windows CE has no native Network Neighbourhood / My Network Places explorer area. In order to access Network Shares you must use the remote computers Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path."
