Does anyone know the location to put files so that they are automatically downloaded when the Pocket PC is connected.  This is using ActiveSync.

RE: Downloading

at a guess i would say its the archive folder ie c:\program files\palm\"username"\archive.

RE: Downloading

Craig, look at the "Active Sync" Properties in the Active Synch application.

From the main window of active synch, click "details".
Click Information type "files"
You will see some text stating:
"On this computer, synchronize files in this folder"
That is the location where files will get "synched" to the pocket pc device.
I believe there is a registry entry for this, so you could programatically change this to something more to your liking.

Regards, Gilbert.
