2.3 Installing Mobile on a Handheld Device


Liquid UI Mobile does not employ an install wizard, so the installation process will be performed manually. To install the Mobile client on a supported handheld device, please do the following.

Note: You must have Microsoft ActiveSync installed in order to complete the installation. ActiveSync can be obtained from www.microsoft.com.
  1. Save the ZIP file provided to you by a Synactive Sales or Support representative to the target system's hard drive. The file is named 'GuiXTMobile.zip' and contains the following files.

    GuiXTMobile-CE.exe

    This file is used for certain specific installations. You will not use this file unless otherwise instructed by a Synactive Support representative.

    GuiXTMobile-CEx86.exe

    This file is used for certain specific installations. You will not use this file unless otherwise instructed by a Synactive Support representative.

    GuiXTMobile-PPC03up.exe

    This file is the one you will use in a production installation of the GuiXT Mobile solution.

    GuiXTMobile-SymbolCE.exe

    This file is used for certain specific installations. You will not use this file unless otherwise instructed by a Synactive Support representative.

  2. Unzip the GuiXTMobile.zip to a a location of your choice.

  3. Launch Microsoft ActiveSync and connect to your device. When the device is connected, click the Explore button in ActiveSync and navigate to the /Program Files directory on the device.
  4. In the /Program Files directory, create a new folder called ‘Synactive’ and then create a ‘GuiXTMobile’ child folder.

  5. Use ActiveSync to copy the correct versions of both the 'GuiXTMobile.exe' and the 'license file to the new 'GuiXTMobile' directory on the device.

  6. Create a shortcut, name it 'GuiXTMobile' and paste it into the device's \Windows\Start Menus\Programs directory.

  7. The entry for GuiXT Mobile should be visible in the device's Start > Programs directory. Do not launch the application. Launching GuiXT Mobile before the license is installed will result in an error message.

  8. Proceed to the licensing section and install the license.

  9. Launch GuiXT Mobile. The Logon Pad will display as shown below.
