Resetting the MC9190-G
Windows CE 6.0 Devices
There are two reset functions, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the MC9190-G by closing all running
programs.
A cold boot also restarts the MC9190-G, but erases all stored records and entries in RAM. Data saved in flash
memory or a memory card is not lost. In addition it returns formats, preferences and other settings to the factory
default settings.
Perform a warm boot first. This restarts the MC9190-G and saves all stored records and entries. If the MC9190-G
still does not respond, perform a cold boot.
Performing a Warm Boot
Hold down the Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the MC9190-G starts to perform a warm
boot release the Power button.

2 - 42 MC9190-G Integrator Guide
Chapter 3 Synchronization
Introduction
Synchronization lets the user manage information between an MC9190-G and a host computer so that changes
made either on the MC9190-G or on the host computer appear in both places. Download and install sync software
to the host computer (either Microsoft ActiveSync for Windows XP or Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) for
Windows Vista and Windows 7) in order to use the sync feature. Visit www.microsoft.com on the host computer for
details.
NOTE When the MC9190-G is connected to a host computer and a sync connection is made, the Wi-Fi radio is
disabled. This is a Microsoft security feature to prevent connection to two networks at the same time.
The sync software:
• Allows working with MC9190-G-compatible applications on the host computer. The sync software replicates
data from the MC9190-G to view, enter, and modify data on the host computer.
• Synchronizes files between the MC9190-G and the host computer, converting the files to the correct format.
• Backs up the data stored on the MC9190-G. Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures the data
is always safe and up-to-date.
• Copies (rather than synchronizes) files between the MC9190-G and the host computer.

Chapter 5 Application Deployment for
Windows CE
Introduction
This chapter describes new features in Windows CE 6.0 including how to package applications, and procedures for
deploying applications onto the MC9190-G.
Packaging
Packaging combines an application's executable files into a single file, called a package. This makes it easier to
deploy and install an application to the MC9190-G. Package new applications and updates, such as new DLL files,
as CAB files, then deploy them to the MC9190-G. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information
on CAB files.
Software Installation on Development PC
To develop applications to run on the MC9190-G, use one or both of the following:
• Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit (EMDK) for C
• Platform Software Developer Kit (Platform SDK) for MC9190-G
The EMDK for C is a development tool used to create native C and C++ applications for the Motorola MC9190-G.
It includes documentation, header files (.H), and library files (.LIB) for native code application development that
targets Motorola value-add APIs.
The Windows CE Platform SDK for MC9100c60 is used in conjunction with the EMDK for C to create Windows CE
applications for the MC9190-G. The Platform SDK installs a new Windows CE device type and its associated
libraries onto the development PC.
The software requirements to use the EMDK for C are:
• Microsoft Windows XP 32-bit Edition or Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit Edition
• Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 or higher. (only for Windows XP, Windows Vista has its own Mobile Device Center)
5-2

development environments, on the development PC. Follow the installation instructions provided with the software.
Software Updates
Download updates to the EMDK for C from the Support Central web site at: http://supportcentral.motorola.com.
Check this site periodically for important updates and new software versions.
Windows CE Flash Storage
In addition to the RAM-based storage standard on Windows CE, the MC9190-G is also equipped with a
non-volatile Flash-based storage area which can store data (partitions) that can not be corrupted by a cold boot.
This Flash area is divided into two categories: Flash File System (FFS) Partitions and Non-FFS Partitions.
FFS Partitions
The MC9190-G includes two FFS partitions. These partitions appear to the MC9190-G as a hard drive that the OS
file system can write files to and read files from. Data is retained even if power is removed.
The two FFS partitions appear as two separate folders in the Windows CE file system and are as follows:
• Platform: The Platform FFS partition contains Motorola-supplied programs and Dynamic Link Libraries
(DLLs). This FFS is configured to include DLLs that control system operation. Since these drivers are
required for basic MC9190-G operation, only experienced users should modify the content of this partition.
• Application: The Application FFS partition is used to store application programs needed to operate the
MC9190-G.
Working with FFS Partitions
Because the FFS partitions appear as folders under the Windows CE file system, they can be written to and read
like any other folder. For example, an application program can write data to a file located in the Application folder
just as it would to the Windows folder. However, the file in the Application folder is in non-volatile storage and is not
lost on a cold boot (e.g., when power is removed for a long period of time).
Standard tools such as ActiveSync can be used to copy files to and from the FFS partitions. They appear as the
“Application” and “Platform” folders to the ActiveSync explorer. This is useful when installing applications on the
MC9190-G. Applications stored in the Application folder are retained even when the MC9190-G is cold booted, just
as the Sample Applications program is retained in memory.
There are two device drivers included in the Windows CE image to assist developers in configuring the MC9190-G
following a cold boot: RegMerge and CopyFiles.
5-4
MC9190-G Integrator Guide
RegMerge.dll
RegMerge.dll is a built-in driver that allows registry edits to be made to the Windows CE registry. Regmerge.dll
runs very early in the boot process and looks for registry files (.reg files) in certain Flash File System folders during
a cold boot. It then merges the registry changes into the system registry located in RAM.
Since the registry is re-created on every cold boot from the default ROM image, the RegMerge driver is necessary
to make registry modifications persistent over cold boots.
RegMerge is configured to look in the root of two specific folders for .reg files in the following order:
\Platform
\Application
Regmerge continues to look for .reg files in these folders until all folders are checked. This allows folders later in
the list to override folders earlier in the list. This way, it is possible to override Registry changes made by the
Platforms partitions folders. Take care when using Regmerge to make registry changes.
NOTE Regmerge only merges the .reg files on cold boots. The merge process is skipped during a warm boot.
Making modifications to registry values for drivers loaded before RegMerge is not recommended. However, these
values may require modification during software development. Since these early loading drivers read these keys
before RegMerge gets a chance to change them, the MC9190-G must be cold booted. The warm boot does not
re-initialize the registry and the early loading driver reads the new registry values.
Do not use Regmerge to modify built-in driver registry values, or merge the same registry value to two files in the
same folder, as the results are undefined.
CopyFiles
Windows CE expects certain files to be in the Windows folder, residing in volatile storage. Windows CE maintains
the System Registry in volatile storage. CopyFiles copies files from one folder to another on a cold boot. Files can
be copied from a non-volatile partition (Application or Platform) to the Windows or other volatile partition during a
cold boot. During a cold boot CopyFiles looks for files with a .CPY extension in the root of the Platform and
Application FFS partitions (Platform first and then Application). These files are text files containing the source and
destination for the desired files to be copied separated by “>”.
Files are copied to the Windows folder from the Flash File System using copy files (*.cpy) in the following order:
\Platform
\Application
Example:
\Application\ScanSamp2.exe>\Windows\ScanSamp2.exe
This line directs CopyFiles to copy the ScanSamp2.exe application from the \Application folder to the \Windows
folder.
Non-FFS Partitions
Non-FFS partitions include additional software and data pre-loaded on the MC9190-G that can be upgraded.
Unlike FFS Partitions, these partitions are not visible when the operating system is running. They also contain
system information. Non-FFS partitions include the following:
Application Deployment for Windows CE
5-5
• Windows CE: The complete Windows CE operating system is stored on Flash devices. If necessary, the
entire OS image may be downloaded to the MC9190-G using files provided by Motorola. Any upgrades must
be obtained from Motorola. This partition is mandatory for the MC9190-G.
• Splash Screen: a bitmap smaller than 16 Kb (and limited to 16 bits per pixel) is displayed as the MC9190-G
cold boots. To download a customized screen to display, see Creating a Splash Screen on page 5-16.
• Bootloader: This program interfaces with the host computer and allows downloading via USB cable any or all
of the partitions listed above, as well as updated versions of Bootloader. Use caution downloading updated
Bootloader versions; incorrect downloading of a Bootloader causes permanent damage to the MC9190-G.
Bootloader is mandatory for the MC9190-G.
• Partition Table: Identifies where each partition is loaded in the MC9190-G.
Downloading Partitions to the MC9190-G
USBDownload is used to specify a hex destination file for each partition and download each file to the MC9190-G.
This download requires a program loader stored on the MC9190-G. The MC9190-G comes with a program loading
utility, Bootloader, stored in the MC9190-G's write-protected flash.
Bootloader
Bootloader allows the user to upgrade the MC9190-G with software updates and/or feature enhancements.
Partition Update vs. File Update
There are two types of updates supported by the MC9190-G: partitions and files. The file system used by the
MC9190-G is the same as the file system used on a desktop computer. A file is a unit of data that can be accessed
using a file name and a location in the file system. When a file is replaced, only the contents of the previous file are
erased. The operating system must be running for a file to be updated, so the Bootloader cannot perform individual
file updates as it is a stand-alone program that does not require the operating system to be running.
A typical partition is a group of files, combined into a single “partition” that represents a specific area of storage.
Examples of partitions are the flash file systems such as Platform or Application. (Using the desktop computer
comparison, these partitions are roughly equivalent to a C: or D: hard disk drive.) In addition to the “hard disk”
partitions, some partitions are used for single items such as the operating system, monitor, or splash screen.
(Again using a desktop computer comparison, these partitions are roughly the equivalent of the BIOS or special
hidden system files.) When a partition is updated, all data that was previously in its storage region is erased - i.e. it
is not a merge but rather a replacement operation. Typically, the operating system is not running when partitions
are update, so Bootloader can perform partition updates.
All partition images suitable for use by Bootloader are in hex file format for transfer by USBDownloader from the
development computer to the MC9190-G.
Upgrade Requirements
Upgrade requirements:
• The hex files to be downloaded (on development computer)
• A connection from the host computer and the MC9190-G
• USBDownload (on development computer) to download the files.
Once these requirements are satisfied, the MC9190-G can be upgraded by invoking Bootloader and navigating the
menus. See Bootloader on page 5-9 for procedures on downloading a hex file to the MC9190-G.

Chapter 6 Application Deployment for
Windows Mobiles
Introduction
This chapter describes new features in Windows Mobile 6.5 including new security features, how to package
applications, and procedures for deploying applications onto the MC9190-G.
Security
The MC9190-G implement a set of security policies that determine whether an application is allowed to run and, if
allowed, with what level of trust. To develop an application, you must know the security configuration of the device,
and how to sign an application with the appropriate certificate to allow the application to run (and to run with the
needed level of trust).
Application Security
Application security controls the applications that can run on the MC9190-G.
• Trusted - All applications must be digitally signed by a certificate on the MC9190-G.
• Prompted - User is prompted to allow unsigned applications to run.
• Open - All applications run.
Developers can include their own certificates and provision the device to “trusted.”
Digital Signatures
Digital signatures provide a way to authenticate the author of EXEs, DLLs, and packages. Digitally signed
applications give users confidence that an application comes from where they think it comes from. For example, if
an end-user downloads an update package from the internet that is digitally signed with Motorola's software
certificate, they are assured that the package is authentic and that it was created by Motorola. By enforcing the use
of digital signatures, users can also prevent malicious applications from executing on the MC9190-G. For example,
users can provision the MC9190-G to only execute “trusted” applications (digitally signed).
Motorola ships all Windows Mobile 6.5 based products in an “open” state, which means all signed and unsigned
applications should work. However, customers can still reconfigure their MC9190-G to operate in the “trusted”
6-2
MC9190-G Integrator Guide
mode. This means that only applications signed with a certificate from the Privileged Execution Trust Certificate
Store can run.
To support the broadest number of deployments, third-party software developers should perform the following
when releasing software for a Windows Mobile 6.5 devices:
• Sign all their EXEs & DLLs with their private key
• Provide the corresponding public certificate to end-users so that it can be installed into Privileged Execution
Trust Certificate Store.
If the software is installed via a .CAB file, developer should also:
• Sign the .CAB file with their private key
• Provide the corresponding public certificate to end-users so that it can be installed into SPC Certificate Store.
Locking Down a MC9190-G
Like most configuration options in Windows Mobile 6.5, security settings are set via XML provisioning. For
example, to enforce the “trusted” model and only allow applications signed with a privileged certificate to run, use
the following provisioning document:
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type=”SecurityPolicy”>
<!-- Disallow unsigned apps -->
<parm name= “4102” value= “0”/>
<!-- No Prompt -->
<parm name= “4122” value= “1”/>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
For more information on various security options, refer to the Security Policy Settings topic in the latest Windows
Mobile documentation.
Application Deployment for Windows Mobile
6-3
Installing Certificates
Use XML provisioning to query and delete certificates from certificate stores. To add a new certificate the
Privileged Execution Trust Certificate Store, use the following sample provisioning document:
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “CertificateStore”>
<characteristic type= “Privileged Execution Trust Authorities”>
<characteristic type= “657141E12FA45786F6A57CA6464032D4B3A55475”>
<parm name= “EncodedCertificate” value= “
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text.
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text.
This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. This is sample text. = “/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
To create your own provisioning document with real certificate information:
1.
Obtain a certificate from a security provider such as VeriSign.
2.
Double-click on the certificate file (.CER) to open it.
3.
Click on the Details tab and locate the Thumbprint field.
4.
Copy the contents of the Thumbprint field and replace the value in the XML example above.
5.
Click the Copy to File… button.
6.
Click Next to start the Certificate Export Wizard.
7.
Select Base-64 encoded X.509 (.CER) and then click Next.
8.
Set the File Name to CertOutput.xml and click Next.
9.
Click Finish to export the certificate.
10. Open the exported file, CertOutput.xml, in a text editor (i.e., NotePad).
11. Copy the contents of the file (excluding the first line, last line, and CR/LF) and replace the value of the
“EncodedCertificate” parameter in the xml example above.
Device Management Security
You can control access to certain device settings and security levels, such as installing applications and changing
security settings. Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for information on device management security.
Remote API Security
The Remote API (RAPI) enables applications that run on a desktop to perform actions on a remote device. RAPI
provides the ability to manipulate the file system on the remote device, including the creation and deletion of files
and directories. By default, Motorola ships with RAPI in the restricted mode. Certain tools, such as RAPIConfig,
6-4
MC9190-G Integrator Guide
may not work properly. Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for finding information on Remote API
security policies.
XML Provisioning
To configure the settings on an MC9190-G, use XML provisioning. To install an XML provisioning file on the
MC9190-G, create a Cabinet Provisioning File (CPF). A CPF file is similar to a CAB file and contains just one file:
_setup.xml. Like a CAB file, the CPF extension is associated with WCELoad.EXE. Opening a CPF extracts the
XML code and uses it to provision and configure the MC9190-G. The user receives an e-mail notification indicating
success or failure.
XML provisioning provides the ability to configure various features of the MC9190-G (i.e., registry and file system).
However, some settings require security privileges. To change registry settings via a CPF file, you must have
certain privileges (roles). Some registry keys require you to simply be an Authenticated User, while other registry
keys require you to be a Manager. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file, Metabase Settings for
Registry Configuration Service Provider section, for the default role settings in Windows Mobile 6.5.
For those registry settings that require the Manager role, the CPF file must be signed with a privileged certificate
installed on the device. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file and the Windows Mobile 6 SDK for
instructions and sample test certificates.
Creating an XML Provisioning File
To create a .cpf file:
1.
Create a valid provisioning XML file named _setup.xml using an XML editor or the tools supplied with Visual
Studio 2005. (For example, use the SampleReg.xml sample created in the RegMerge section and rename it
_setup.xml.) Ensure the file contains the required parameters for the operation. Refer to the Microsoft Windows
Mobile 6 Help file for information.
2.
In the Windows Mobile 6.5 tools directory on the desktop computer (typically \Program Files\Windows CE
Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 6 Pocket PC SDK\Tools), run the Makecab.exe utility, using the following
syntax to create a .cpf file from the _setup.xml file:
MakeCab.exe /D COMPRESS=OFF _setup.xml myOutCpf
NOTE COMPRESS=OFF is required for backward compatibility with Pocket PC.
3.
Optionally, use the Authenticode tools to sign the .cpf file.
4.
Tap the filename to install.
5.
Certain applications and settings require a cold boot to take affect. In these cases, cold boot the MC9190-G.
Refer to the Windows Mobile Version 6 Help file for more information.
XML Provisioning vs. RegMerge and Copy File
Prior to Windows Mobile 6.5, Motorola used two drivers (RegMerge and CopyFiles) to update the registry and to
copy files during a cold boot. With Mobile 6.5, Motorola recommends using XML provisioning instead. RegMerge
and CopyFiles are supported for backward compatibility but Motorola may eliminate support in the future. The
following sections provide examples of how RegMerge and CopyFiles were used, and how to perform the same
function using XML provisioning.
Application Deployment for Windows Mobile
6-5
RegMerge
RegMerge.dll is a built-in driver that allows updating the registry during a clean boot. RegMerge runs very early in
the boot process and looks for registry files (.reg files) in certain Flash File System folders (i.e., \Application) during
a clean boot. It then merges the registry changes into the system registry located in RAM.
The following example uses RegMerge to set a registry key:
SampleReg.reg
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Hardware\DeviceMap\Backlight]
“BacklightIntensity”=dword:00000036
The following example uses XML provisioning to perform the same task:
SampleReg.xml
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “Registry”>
<characteristic type= “HKLM\Hardware\DeviceMap\Backlight”>
<parm name= “BacklightIntensity” value= “54” datatype= “integer” />
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
CopyFiles
CopyFiles copies files from one folder to another on a clean boot. During a clean boot CopyFiles looks for files with
a .CPY extension in the root of the Application FFS partition. These files are text files containing the source and
destination for the desired files to copy, separated by “>”.
The following example uses CopyFiles to copy a file from the \Application folder to the \Windows folder:
SampleCpy.cpy
\Application\example.txt > \Windows\example.txt
The following example uses XML provisioning to perform the same task:
6-6
MC9190-G Integrator Guide
SampleCpy.xml
<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type= “FileOperation”>
<characteristic type= “\Windows” translation= “filesystem”>
<characteristic type= “MakeDir”/>
<characteristic type= “example.txt” translation= “fileystem”>
<characteristic type= “Copy”>
<parm name= “Source” value= “\Application\example.txt” translation= “filesystem”/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>
Packaging
Packaging combines an application's executable files into a single file, called a package. This makes it easier to
deploy and install an application to the MC9190-G. Package new applications and updates, such as new DLL files,
as CAB files, then deploy them to the MC9190-G. Refer to the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Help file for information
on CAB files.
Software Installation on Development PC
To develop applications to run on the MC9190-G, use the Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit (EMDK) for C
The EMDK for C is a development tool used to create native C and C++ applications for the Motorola MC9190-G.
It includes documentation, header files (.H), and library files (.LIB) for native code application development that
targets Motorola value-add APIs.
The software requirements to use the EMDK for C are:
• Microsoft Windows XP 32-bit Edition or Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit Edition
• Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 or higher. (only for Windows XP, Windows Vista has its own Mobile Device Center)
• If developing applications for Windows Mobile 6.X or Windows CE 6.0
• Microsoft® Visual Studio 2005
• Microsoft® Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack1
(or)
• Microsoft® Visual Studio 2008
• Microsoft® Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack1
• One or more of the following Platform SDK's:
• Windows Mobile 6 Professional and Standard Software Development Kits Refresh

Windows Mobile File Storage
Windows Mobile 6.5 contains three types of file storage:
• Random Access Memory (RAM)
• Persistent Storage
• Application folder.
Random Access Memory
Executing programs use RAM to store data. Data stored in RAM is lost upon a warm boot. RAM also included a
volatile file storage area called Cache Disk.
6-8
MC9190-G Integrator Guide
Volatile File Storage (Cache Disk)
Windows Mobile 6.5 memory architecture uses persistent storage for all files, registry settings, and database
objects to ensure data is retained even after a power failure. Persistent storage is implemented using Flash
memory technology which is generally slower than volatile RAM memory. In certain situations the speed of the
operation is more important than the integrity of the data. For these situations, Motorola has provided a small
volatile File Storage volume, accessed as the Cache Disk folder. Disk operations to the Cache Disk folder are
much faster than to any of the persistent storage volumes, but data is lost across warm boots and power
interruptions. Note that a backup battery powers RAM memory, including the Cache Disk, when you remove the
main battery for a short period of time.
The MC9190-G uses the Cache Disk for temporary data that can be restored from other sources, for example, for
temporarily “caching” HTML web pages by a browser or generating formatted files to send to a printer. Both
situations benefit from the increased speed of the cache disk, but you can restore the data if needed.
DO NOT use the Cache Disk as a method to improve application performance. Analyze applications that perform
slower in persistent storage to optimize disk access. Common areas for optimization include minimizing the
number of reads and writes to a file, removing unneeded debug logging, and minimizing file flushing or closing
files.
Persistent Storage
Windows Mobile 6.5 protects all data and applications from power-related loss. Because Windows Mobile 6.5
mounts the entire file system and registry in persistent storage (rather than using RAM), MC9190-G devices
provide a reliable storage platform even in the absence of battery power.
Persistent storage provides application developers with a reliable storage system available through the standard
file system and registry APIs. Persistent storage is optimized for large reads and writes; therefore, applications
reading and writing data in large chunks tend to outperform those applications reading and writing small blocks of
data. Data in persistent storage is lost upon a clean boot.
Persistent storage contains all the directories under the root directory except for Application, Cache Disk, and
Storage Card (if a storage card is installed). Persistent storage is approximately 700 MB (formatted).
Application Folder
The Application folder is a super-persistent storage that is persistent even after a clean boot. Accessing data in the
Application folder is slower than accessing persistent storage. The Application folder is used for deployment and
device-unique data. For example, network profiles can be stored in the Application folder so that connection to the
network is available after a cold boot. The Application folder is approximately 117 MB (formatted).
Deployment
To install applications onto the MC9190-G, developers package the application and all required files into a CAB
file, then load the file onto the MC9190-G using one of the following options:
• Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 or higher
• Storage Card

Appendix B Using iDockIt
Introduction
iDockIt™ manages activities that can occur when the MC9190-G is connected to a host computer using a cradle
(Ethernet, modem, serial or USB) or a USB or a serial cable. iDockIt can enable the MC9190-G to connect
automatically to a host computer, network, or the Internet and then exchange information or launch an application.
Use iDockIt to configure settings for each type of connection.
This appendix provides information for configuring iDockIt on an MC9190-G running Windows Mobile 6.5 or
Windows CE 6.0.
General options include:
•
enabling or disabling iDockIt; if enabled, keeps iDockIt running in the background.
•
displaying status and cradle settings the MC9190-G is placed in a cradle.
•
defining whether iDockIt should wait before connecting or reconnecting the MC9190-G to the host computer
or network and if waiting, the number of seconds to delay.
•
disabling specific error messages.
Connection-specific options include:
•
launching Microsoft ActiveSync to synchronize with a host computer.
•
establishing a connection to a network.
•
launching an application after establishing a network connection.
•
establishing a connection via a specified modem.
NOTE iDockIt settings and options control cradle events only while iDockIt is running.
Do not use ActiveSync 4.5 or later to synchronize data between a host computer and a Windows CE based
device through an Ethernet cradle.
B-2
MC9190-G Integrator Guide
General Recommendations
The MC9190-G should not be placed in a cradle or connected when the host computer to which it is physically
connected is started or restarted. If the MC9190-G is cradled when the host computer is started or restarted, the
MC9190-G attempts to connect before ActiveSync has fully loaded and a proper connection is impossible. Follow
these general guidelines for avoiding connection problems:
•
Connect only one MC9190-G to the host computer at a time. (More than one serial cable/cradle or USB
cable/cradle can be connected simultaneously.)
•
When starting or restarting the host computer, wait for the start process to finish completely before placing
the MC9190-G in a cradle. When cradled, it is able to make the connection defined in iDockIt settings.
•
If the MC9190-G was connected to the host computer when the host computer was started, remove the
MC9190-G from the cradle, restart the host computer, and then return the MC9190-G to the cradle.
•
Performing a warm boot on the MC9190-G can be useful. Remove the MC9190-G from the cradle before
performing a warm boot. Restart iDockIt and then recradle the MC9190-G.
•
For additional information, refer to Microsoft ActiveSync Help on your host computer.
Prepare the MC9190-G To Connect
When using Microsoft ActiveSync, first established a partnership between the MC9190-G and the host computer.
This should occur the first time the MC9190-G is placed in a cradle. If using an Ethernet cradle, first set up the
partnership with the host computer using a serial or USB cable or cradle.

General Tab
Settings on the General tab complement the options set for the cradle.
Figure B-1 General Settings Tab
•
Enable iDockIt - Enables iDockIt to control cradle events. When the MC9190-G is placed in a cradle, iDockIt
identifies the type of cradle and perform the activities configured.
•
Autostart - Enables iDockIt to start automatically when the MC9190-G is rebooted.
•
Display status when cradled - Displays the iDockIt Status tab when the MC9190-G is placed in the cradle.
If Display settings when cradled is selected, the settings tab for the type of cradle detected displays and
then the Status tab displays after the specified time elapses.
•
Display settings when cradled - Displays the cradle settings tab when the MC9190-G is placed in the
cradle.
•
Auto connect after x seconds - to automatically make the connection defined on the cradle tab after a
specific delay. The delay provides the opportunity to review or change connection options. During this waiting
period, you can select either Menu > Connect or Menu > Cancel to connect immediately or cancel
automatic connection.
CAUTION
If Display settings when cradled is selected and Auto connect after is not selected, iDockIt only
displays the cradle settings tab when the MC9190-G is placed in a cradle and does not attempt to connect
to the network.
•
Reconnect delay - Specifies the number of seconds iDockIt waits after a connection is lost before
attempting to reconnect.
•
USB Function - When placed into a USB cradle, iDockIt needs to know whether the cradle directly connects
to a host computer or if the cradle connects to a network via an Ethernet cable. If using iDockIt to
synchronize with a host computer using ActiveSync via USB cable or cradle, select RNDIS. If using iDockIt to
connect to a network though an Ethernet cradle, select Serial.
Option are Default, iDockIt, RNDIS and Serial.
•
Ports to monitor - If RS232 is check, iDockIt monitors the serial ports for direct or modem connection. If
USB is checked iDockIt monitors USB connections.
Using iDockIt
B-5
Auto-dismiss dialogs - Configure iDockIt to dismiss several error messages that might be displayed as
iDockIt makes the connection. These messages do not require any action. To auto-dismiss a message, tap
the checkbox next to its title. If the message occurs during a connection attempt, iDockIt allows it and the
event appears in the Status window.
•
• Cannot Connect - The answering modem has disconnected. To check your connection settings and
change them if needed, tap Settings.
This message may be displayed when the MC9190-G is removed from a cradle, breaking the connection.
Tapping Settings would display the Pocket host computer Connections dialog. Since you should not need
to change these settings, the error message can be dismissed automatically.
• Communications Error - Cannot start communications with the desktop computer. Reconnect the
MC9190-G. If the problem persists, see Microsoft ActiveSync Help.
This message is displayed when ActiveSync attempts to connect to a host computer and synchronize
data but cannot find the computer name. Since this message may appear in the course of a successful
connection attempt, it can be dismissed automatically.
• Pocket PC Networking - Unable to obtain a server-assigned IP address. Try again later or enter an IP
address in Network settings.
This dialog may appear periodically when the MC9190-G is out of network range. The message has

Glossary
Numeric
802.11. A group of wireless specifications developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It
specifies an over-the-air interface between a wireless client and a base station or between two wireless clients.
802.11a. Operates in the 5 GHz frequency range (5.125 to 5.85 GHz) with a maximum 54Mbit/sec. signaling rate. The 5
GHz frequency band is not as crowded as the 2.4 GHz frequency because it offers significantly more radio channels
than the 802.11b and is used by fewer applications. It has a shorter range than 802.11g and is not compatible with
802.11b.

agency specifies various laser operation classes based on power output during operation.
CDRH Class 1. This is the lowest power CDRH laser classification. This class is considered intrinsically safe, even if all laser
output were directed into the eye's pupil. There are no special operating procedures for this class.
CDRH Class 2. No additional software mechanisms are needed to conform to this limit. Laser operation in this class poses
no danger for unintentional direct human exposure.
CHAP. (Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol) A type of authentication in which the authentication agent (typically
a network server) sends the client program a random value that is used only once and an ID value. Both the sender and
peer share a predefined secret. The peer concatenates the random value (or nonce), the ID and the secret and
calculates a one-way hash using MD5. The hash value is sent to the authenticator, which in turn builds that same string
on its side, calculates the MD5 sum itself and compares the result with the value received from the peer. If the values
match, the peer is authenticated.
Cold Boot. A cold boot restarts the mobile computer and erases all user stored records and entries.
COM port. Communication port; ports are identified by number, e.g., COM1, COM2.

operation classes based on power output during operation.
IEC (825) Class 1. This is the lowest power IEC laser classification. Conformity is ensured through a software restriction of
120 seconds of laser operation within any 1000 second window and an automatic laser shutdown if the scanner's
oscillating mirror fails.
IEEE Address. See MAC Address.
Internet Protocol Address. See IP.
IP. (Internet Protocol) The IP part of the TCP/IP communications protocol. IP implements the network layer (layer 3) of the
protocol, which contains a network address and is used to route a message to a different network or subnetwork. IP
accepts “packets” from the layer 4 transport protocol (TCP or UDP), adds its own header to it and delivers a “datagram”
to the layer 2 data link protocol. It may also break the packet into fragments to support the maximum transmission unit
(MTU) of the network.
IP Address. (Internet Protocol address) The address of a computer attached to an IP network. Every client and server
station must have a unique IP address. A 32-bit address used by a computer on a IP network. Client workstations have
either a permanent address or one that is dynamically assigned to them each session. IP addresses are written as four
sets of numbers separated by periods; for example, 204.171.64.2.

semiconductor uses applied voltage to produce light of a certain frequency determined by the semiconductor's particular
chemical composition.
Glossary - 5
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). A display that uses liquid crystal sealed between two glass plates. The crystals are excited
by precise electrical charges, causing them to reflect light outside according to their bias. They use little electricity and
react relatively quickly. They require external light to reflect their information to the user.
M
Mobile Computer. In this text, mobile computer refers to the Motorola Series 9190 wireless portable computer. It can be
set up to run as a stand-alone device, or it can be set up to communicate with a network, using wireless radio technology.
MS CHAP. (Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol) is the Microsoft version of CHAP and is an extension
to RFC 1994. Like the standard version of CHAP, MS-CHAP is used for PPP authentication; in this case, authentication
occurs between a PC using Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 95 and a Cisco router or access server acting
as a network access server (NAS).
N
Nominal. The exact (or ideal) intended value for a specified parameter. Tolerances are specified as positive and negative
deviations from this value.
P
PAN . Personal area network. Using Bluetooth wireless technology, PANs enable devices to communicate wirelessly.
Generally, a wireless PAN consists of a dynamic group of less than 255 devices that communicate within about a 33-foot
range. Only devices within this limited area typically participate in the network.
PING. (Packet Internet Groper) An Internet utility used to determine whether a particular IP address is online. It is used to
test and debug a network by sending out a packet and waiting for a response.
Q

MC9190-G Integrator Guide
Router. A device that connects networks and supports the required protocols for packet filtering. Routers are typically used
to extend the range of cabling and to organize the topology of a network into subnets. See Subnet.
RS-232. An Electronic Industries Association (EIA) standard that defines the connector, connector pins, and signals used to
transfer data serially from one device to another.
S
Scanner. An electronic device used to scan bar code symbols and produce a digitized pattern that corresponds to the bars
and spaces of the symbol.
Scanning Mode. The scanner is energized, programmed and ready to read a bar code.
Shared Key. Shared Key authentication is an algorithm where both the AP and the MU share an authentication key.
Soft Reset. See Warm Boot.
Specular Reflection. The mirror-like direct reflection of light from a surface, which can cause difficulty decoding a bar code.
Subnet. A subset of nodes on a network that are serviced by the same router. See Router.
Subnet Mask. A 32-bit number used to separate the network and host sections of an IP address. A custom subnet mask
subdivides an IP network into smaller subsections. The mask is a binary pattern that is matched up with the IP address
to turn part of the host ID address field into a field for subnets. Default is often 255.255.255.0.
Symbol. A scannable unit that encodes data within the conventions of a certain symbology, usually including start/stop
characters, quiet zones, data characters and check characters.
Symbology. The structural rules and conventions for representing data within a particular bar code type (e.g. UPC/EAN,
Code 39, PDF417, etc.).
T
TCP/IP. (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol used to internetwork dissimilar
systems. This standard is the protocol of the Internet and has become the global standard for communications. TCP
provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is received correctly at the other end.
UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable
protocol, which means that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a
destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world, hence its use in the worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which
is either permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Terminal Emulation. A “terminal emulation” emulates a character-based mainframe session on a remote non-mainframe
terminal, including all display features, commands and function keys. The MC9190 Series supports Terminal Emulations
in 3270, 5250 and VT220.
Glossary - 7
TKIP. (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) A wireless encryption protocol that periodically changes the encryption key, making
it harder to decode.
TLS. (Transport Layer Security) TLS is a protocol that ensures privacy between communicating applications and their users
on the Internet. When a server and client communicate, TLS ensures that no third party may eavesdrop or tamper with
any message. TLS is the successor to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
V
Visible Laser Diode (VLD). A solid state device which produces visible laser light.
W
Warm Boot. A warm boot restarts the mobile computer by closing all running programs. All data that is not saved to flash
memory is lost.
WAP. (Wireless Application Protocol) A set of specifications, developed by the WAP Forum, that lets developers using
Wireless Markup Language build networked applications designed for handheld wireless devices. WAP was designed
to work within the constraints of these devices: a limited memory and CPU size, small, monochrome screens, low
bandwidth and erratic connections.
WEP. Wired-Equivalent Privacy protocol was specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard to provide a WLAN with a minimal level
of security and privacy comparable to a typical wired LAN, using data encryption.
WPA. Wi-Fi Protected Access is a data encryption specification for 802.11 wireless networks that replaces the weaker WEP.
It improves on WEP by using dynamic keys, Extensible Authentication Protocol to secure network access, and an
encryption method called Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) to secure data transmissions.
WPA2. Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 is an enhanced version of WPA. It uses Advanced Encryption Standard instead of TKIP.
WLAN. Wireless local-area networks use radio waves instead of a cable to connect a user device, such as a mobile
computer, to a LAN. They provide Ethernet connections over the air and operate under the 802.11 family of
specifications developed by the IEEE.
