The Remote Display allows to operate the target device's Win CE desktop from a Windows PC. It requires a USB ActiveSync or Ethernet connection.

There are two Versions of RemoteDisplay Available.

  • We recommend to use Version V2 when you have a working USB ActiveSync connection between the Colibri and the PC.
  • We recommend to use Version V3 when you want to use RemoteDisplay over an Ethernet network.

Remote Display V2 Over ActiveSync

  1. Extract the zip file into any folder on your PC.
  2. Wait for the ActiveSync connection to be ready.
  3. Start CeRHost.exe.
    The Colibri side SW is contained in the 'devices' folder. It will be copied automatically into the Colibri's volatile memory and executed.

After each Colibri Restart, you need to wait for an ActiveSync connection and restart CeRHost.exe.

Remote Display V2 Over Ethernet

To use Remote Display V2 through Ethernet:

  1. Start the CERHost.exe on your host PC.
  2. Start cerdisp2.exe on the Colibri with the command parameter -hPCnameOrIP –c

cerdisp2.exe can be found in the same zip file as CERHost.exe.

Example:

cerdisp2.exe –h192.168.0.5 –c 

or

cerdisp2.exe –hDevPC2 –c 

To start the program automatically you can put a Shortcut into any AutoRun folder.

Remote Display V3 Over Ethernet

If you are evaluating on WEC2013, please use CerDisp.exe and shortcut which is inside the WinCE2013 folder.
If you are evaluating on WCE5 or WCE6 or WEC7, please use CerDisp.exe and shortcut which is inside the WinCE folder.

Installation Instructions (Manual Start)

  1. Copy CerDisp.exe to any folder on the Colibri.
    Execute it and click the "Start" button.

  2. Copy CerHost.exe to any location on your PC, and execute it. Choose the Menu "File -> Connect".
    After a few seconds, the Colibri module will show up in the list of available devices. Select the device and press OK.

Installation Instructions (Automatic Start)

  1. Copy the folders \AutoRun\ and \AutoCopy\ either

    • to the Colibri \FlashDisk\ folder
    • to the root folder of a USB pen drive
    • to the root folder of an SD/MMC card

    Whenever you boot the Colibri, or insert the pen drive or SD/MMC card, the cerdisp.exe tool is automatically run on the Colibri.

  2. Copy CerHost.exe to any location on your PC, and execute it. Choose the Menu "File -> Connect".
    After a few seconds, the Colibri module will show up in the list of available devices. Select the device and press OK. If it doesn't show Colibri module name, please fill Colibri module IP address and press OK.

Note

We noticed that the Remote Display V3 (over Ethernet) loses connection as soon as the software keyboard (SIP) appears or disappears from the screen. Remote Display may or may not automatically reconnect.

As a workaround you can disable the SIP by adding a registry key

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\SIP]
Disabled = dword:1
