EZConfig
Overview
EZConfig is a suite of products that configures Dolphin terminals quickly and efficiently. With the tools in
the EZConfig suite, you can package data on the workstation, then deploy and unpackage that data on
the Dolphin terminal.
Components
There are two main components: EZConfig Editor and EZConfig Client.
EZConfig Editor
Edits and creates configuration and registry documents in the EXM file format for Dolphin terminals. There
are two versions of EZConfig Editor: one for the workstation and one for the terminal.
Both editors:
• Create and modify EXM files–Working with Open EXM Files (see page 2-7)
• Convert INI files to EXM files–Converting Known INI and MNU Files (see page 2-25)
In addition, EZConfig Editor on the workstation
• Generates bar codes from EXM files–Creating Bar Codes (see page 2-19)
For details about the workstation editor, see EZConfig Editor on page 2-2.
For details about the terminal editor, see EZConfig Editor on the Terminal on page 2-27.
EZConfig Client
Decodes the bar codes generated by EZConfig Editor on the workstation.
For details, see EZConfig Client on page 2-31.
Upgrades
EZConfig Editor on the workstation must be installed on the workstation separately from the Power Tools
upgrade. Obtain the Honeywell EZConfig Editor Setup rXX.exe from www.honeywellaidc.com and
install the EXE on the workstation.
All components on the terminal–the EZConfig Editor and EZConfig Client–are installed during Power
Tools and Demos upgrades. For more information, see Upgrading Power Tools on page 1-6.
2-1
EZConfig Editor
EZConfig Editor creates, edits, and manages EXM files for Dolphin terminals. There is an EZConfig Editor
on the workstation and an EZConfig Editor on the terminal. In the workstation editor, EXM files are edited,
saved, then transferred to the terminal. In the terminal editor, EXM files are edited and saved right on the
terminal; see EZConfig Editor on the Terminal (page 2-27).
EXM Files
The EXM file format is an XML format customized for Dolphin terminals that are comprised of sections
that sometimes contain child sections and keys. Keys contain the values that configure the terminal.
The EXM file format supports a multi-level, hierarchical, tree structure. The terminal reads the highest
level section first and then reads the key values in each section.
EXM files replace INI files for Power Tools and terminal configuration settings. If both an INI file and an
EXM file are present for the same application, the terminal defaults to the EXM file and a warning
message appears at startup. Remove the INI file from the terminal to avoid this warning message.
Types of Configuration Files
There are two types of configuration files in the EXM file format:
Configuration documents Program and configure the terminal; see Opening EXM Files on page 2-6.
Registry documents
Update and modify the registry; see Registry Documents (page 2-16).
Sample EXM Files
After you install the new build on the workstation, default EXM files are stored in the C:\Program
Files\Honeywell\Power Tools and Demos for WM 5.0\EZConfig EXM Files folder.
Use these files as templates to create new EXM files.
2-2
Opening EZConfig Editor on the Workstation
After you complete installation, EZConfig Editor is available on the workstation from the Start menu.
On Windows Mobile-based devices, click Start > Programs > Honeywell > EZConfig Editor >
EZConfig Editor.
On the Dolphin 7600, click Start > Programs > Power Tools > EZConfig Utilities > EZConfig Editor.

Menu Item
Description
Simplify Document
Note: You cannot
undo this
action!
Simplifies the EXM file, which makes it smaller.
Simplifying permanently removes
• Disabled sections and keys
• Descriptions
• Bar code settings
When you create a bar code, you can simplify the file embedded in the bar code without
affecting the open EXM file. This reduces the size of the bar code package yet keeps the
disabled sections, descriptions, and bar code settings in the open EXM file for future
reference.
For more information, see Simplified (page 2-21) on the Advanced Tab (see page 2-21).
Because the following menu items execute commands on the terminal, there must be an ActiveSync connection
between the workstation and the terminal.
Launch Associated
Application
If the open EXM file is associated with an application on the terminal, this item is active
and launches the associated application on the terminal.
Note: You would use this option after saving the EXM file to the terminal; see Save to
Device As on page 2-3.
*Warm Boot
Warm boots the terminal.
*Cold Boot
Cold boots the terminal.
*Some settings affect the boot process and these menu items can help you run a test
without switching to the terminal.
Upgrade Remote
INI Files*
Launches the tool that converts existing INI files stored on a device to the EXM file
format. For more details, see Converting Known INI and MNU Files on page 2-25.
Note: Does not apply to the 6100/6500.
2-5
Opening EXM Files
EZConfig Editor opens EXM files stored on the workstation or the terminal (if an ActiveSync connection
is established).
Opening EXM Files on the Workstation
Click File > Open or the Open toolbar button
and select the EXM file.
When you select a known MNU or INI file, EZConfig Editor prompts you to convert the file. When you
select Yes, EZConfig Editor imports the file and converts it to the EXM file format. Then, you can click
File > Save As to save the file with the EXM extension.
You cannot save known INI or MNU files in their original format. For a list of known files, see Known INI
and MNU Files on page 2-25.
The preferred conversion method is to use the batch conversion tool and then make your edits to the new
EXM files. For details, see Converting Known INI and MNU Files on page 2-25.
Opening Remote EXM Files
The workstation and the terminal must be connected via ActiveSync!
EZConfig Editor can open EXM files located on the terminal so that you can make edits to the terminal’s
configuration real-time.
When the terminal and workstation are connected by ActiveSync, click File > Open From Device and the
remote open window opens. (\Honeywell for 6100/6500)
To open, double-tap on a file or select it and click OK.
Note: You can also open EXM files in the editor on the terminal; see EZConfig Editor on the Terminal (page 2-27).

The EXM file format supports a multi-level tree structure. The section tree appears in the top left quadrant
of the window. The root node identifies the EXM file and “Root” appears in the description.
Sections have a Name and Description and contain keys that appear in the upper right quadrant when
you select the section name. Select a section by clicking on it. You can select only one section at a time.
2-7
Edit Menu Options
Select a section click Edit to see the available options.
Rename
Activates the section name so that you can rename the section.
Note: You cannot modify the name if the section is locked; see Section Locks (page 2-9).
Cut
Cuts a selected section.
Copy
Copies a selected section.
Paste
Pastes the section that was just cut or copied at the same level as the selected section.
Paste as Child
Pastes the section that was just cut or copied as a child of the selected section.
Note: You can cut, copy and paste sections within an EXM file or across EXM files.
Delete
Deletes a selected section.
Note: Because you cannot undo a delete, consider disabling rather than deleting.
Enable
Sections are enabled by default. This menu item enables sections that have been disabled
prior. You can enable a section only if its parent section is enabled. To enable all the keys
inside a section you are enabling, SHIFT + right-click and select Enable All.
Disable All
Sections are enabled by default. This menu item disables sections and all of its keys.
Disabled sections remain in the file with a gray folder .
If you disable a section that has child sections, all of its child sections (and the child section
keys) are disabled automatically. The child section folders are also in gray.
When reading the EXM file, the terminal behaves as though disabled sections are not there
and moves on to read the next enabled section.
Disabled sections can be removed from the EXM file permanently using the Simplify
Document (see page 2-5) option. If you want to keep disabled sections in the EXM file on
the workstation but not in the file deployed to the terminal, use the Simplified option (see
page 2-21) when creating the bar code.
Insert Section
This menu item inserts a new section. You can also press the Insert key (INS).
Append Child Section This menu item adds a new child section to a selected section. The new child section is
inserted below the previous section.

Modifying Section Names
To change a section name, double-click on the folder and type in the new name or select Rename on the
Edit menu. Type in the new name and press ENTER.
Note: You cannot modify the name if the section is locked or disabled; see Section Locks (page 2-9).
Modifying Section Descriptions
Descriptions are not required to process key values but do help document the EXM file and often contain
valuable information. If you want to modify a section description, select the section, click inside the section
description, and begin typing. You cannot modify descriptions of locked sections.
Moving Sections
To move sections within an EXM file, use the drag and drop method. By default, sections are dropped at
the same level in the tree.
For additional functionality when dragging and dropping, press and hold:
• ALT to drop a section as a child section.
• CTRL to copy a section and drop the copy at the same level in the tree.
• CTRL + ALT to copy a section and drop the copy as a child section.
Note: You can select only one section at a time; you cannot use SHIFT+Click or CTRL+Click to select more than
one section.
To move sections between EXM files, open two instances of EZConfig Editor and drag and drop sections
between them. When dragging, a copy of the section is dragged to the new file. When dropping, drop the
section directly on top of the section you want it to be a child section of.
Note: To drop the first section into a new file, press and hold the ALT key and drop the section on the root node. (All
sections must be child sections of the root node.)
Section Locks
There are different types of locks on sections. The status bar indicates what type of lock is applied to a
selected section.

Section-Level Merge Modes
EXM files ship with section-level merge modes already defined according to section content. Merge
modes determine how section information is handled when an updated EXM file is deployed to the
terminal where an existing version of that EXM file is stored.
Merge modes are indicated by folder icons and in the Status bar.
Mode
Description
Merge Effect
Delete + Add
Deletes non-common children elements (i.e., subsections, and keys) in
the target file, then adds the new information from the bar code.
Basically, the new section replaces the old section.
This is the default merge mode for new sections.
Exclusive
Disable +
Add
Disables non-common children elements (i.e., subsections, and keys) in
the target file, then adds the new information from the bar code.
Note: Disabled sections and keys removed from the simplified bar code
end up as disabled in the target file.
Add Only
Adds new information (sections and keys) to the existing section. If this
is a brand new section, the new section is added to the existing EXM
file.
Note: Disabled sections removed from the simplified bar code are not
modified in the target file.
To change section-level merge modes, select a section and right click.
The folder colors change immediately after selection.

Cut
Cuts a selected key.
Copy
Copies a selected key.
Paste
Disabled; keys can be pasted only as children of a section.
Paste as Child
Pastes the key just cut or copied in the selected section. Keys are not multi-level; all keys
paste at the same level within a section.
Note: You can cut, copy and paste keys within an EXM file or across EXM files.
Delete
Deletes a selected key.
Note: You cannot undo a delete; you might want to consider disabling rather than deleting.
Enable
Enables keys that were disabled. When a key is enabled, the client application can read
and apply its value. When you enable a key, make sure to specify a value for that key; do
not leave it blank.
Note: To enable a key, its parent section must be enabled.
Disable
Disables keys. Enabled keys have key values in blue. Disabled keys have key values in
black.
The terminal does not read disabled keys and disabled keys are removed if the file is
simplified; see Simplify Document (page 2-5).
Because many key values are 1 for enable and 0 for disable, remember that disabling
a key means that the terminal behaves as if the key is not there when reading the file,
NOT that the key’s value is set to disabled. The terminal simply moves on to read the
next enabled key.
Insert New Key
This menu item inserts a new key above the selected key.

Registry Documents
EZConfig Editor creates registry documents in the EXM file format and also opens existing REG files and
converts them to the EXM file format. EZConfig Editor cannot save registry documents in the REG file
format.
Updating the Registry on the Terminal
To update the terminal’s registry, you must
• Create an EXM file that is a registry document–Creating Registry Documents (page 2-16),
• Create a bar code package from that EXM file–Creating Bar Codes (page 2-19), and
• Scan the bar code with the terminal
By default, EZConfig Client on the terminal updates the Windows registry immediately after decoding the
bar code.
Default Application Association
By default, registry documents are associated with EZConfig Client. While a registry document is open,
click File > Properties.
Execute must remain selected for EZConfig Client to update the registry after decoding the bar code. If
Execute is not selected, the registry document is deployed after decoding but the registry is not updated.
Creating Registry Documents
1.
In EZConfig Editor, click File > New > Registry Document.

Processing Registry Documents on the Terminal
After EZConfig Client updates the registry, the EXM file itself is deployed to the location entered in the
Remote Path (page 2-20) field on the Bar Codes Tab (page 2-20).
Note: EXM files appear with an
icon on terminal windows.
If you do not want to store the registry EXM file on the terminal after updating the registry, select the
Temporary (page 2-22) option on the Bar Codes Tab (page 2-20).
Persistent Registry Documents
If you want to update the registry during every cold boot, create a registry document in the EXM format,
save it to the terminal in the \IPSM\Autoinstall (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder, and cold boot. The
registry settings in the EXM file will load during startup.
Note: Of course, if you want to save a registry file but not load it every startup, simply store the registry EXM file in
the \IPSM (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder.
2 - 18
Creating Bar Codes
EZConfig Editor embeds EXM files in bar codes. The EZConfig Client on the terminal decodes the bar
code and deploys the data. Using bar codes quickly and easily configures Dolphin terminals without an
IrDA, ActiveSync, or network connection to a workstation.
Document Types
EZConfig Editor produces two kinds of EXM files: configuration documents and registry documents. Both
can be embedded in bar codes and processed by EZConfig Client on the terminal.
Configuration Documents
EZConfig Client deploys the EXM file in the terminal. If an EXM file is associated with an
application, EZConfig Client deploys the data to that application for processing; see
Associating Applications on page 2-15.
Note: The DeviceConfig.exm file must be associated with DeviceConfig.exe to be
processed appropriately on the terminal.
Registry Documents
EZConfig Client updates the registry immediately without launching another application.
Bar Code Type
EZConfig Editor creates an Aztec bar code; for example,
.
Time and Date Stamp
EXM files are stamped with the time and date the moment EZConfig Editor creates the barcode.
Bar Code Size and Number
The amount of data in the EXM file determines how many bar codes are generated and the physical size
of each bar code. More data means more bar codes and larger bar codes.
EZConfig Editor offers four ways to control how many bar codes are produced and adjust the size of each
bar code:
1.
Set byte size limits on how much data each bar code can contain—see Max Barcode Size on page
2-22.
2.
Split the data across a specified number of bar codes—see # Bar codes to generate on page 2-21.
3.
Simplify the EXM file in the bar code—see Simplified on page 2-21.
4.
Scale the bar codes on the bar code sheet—see Bar Code Scaling Factor on page 2-23.
Bar Code Sheet
EZConfig Editor produces a bar code sheet that contains the generated bar codes. Bar code sheets can
be printed from a laser printer, copied to the clipboard, and saved as an HTML file; see Printing and
Saving Options on page 2-23.
In addition, individual bar codes can be saved as .tif or .png graphic files that can then be emailed and
printed; see Bar Codes Tab on page 2-20.
2 - 19
Generating Bar Codes
When creating a bar code, EZConfig Editor automatically encrypts and compresses the data in the EXM
file. To generate a bar code, click File > Create EZConfig Bar Code OR the Create Bar Code toolbar
button
while the EXM file is open. EZConfig Editor generates a bar code or codes. The Bar Codes tab
window opens displaying the details of the bar code package generated.
The Bar Codes and Advanced tabs offers several processing options.
Note: The number of bar codes produced depends on the amount of data present in the EXM file. The more data
present, the more bar codes generated. You must scan all bar codes to deploy the package!
Bar Codes Tab
The Bar Codes tab previews and customizes generated bar code(s).
Field/Option
Description
Display
Indicates which bar code is displayed in the preview area; the default is “1,” the first
bar code in the package. If more than one bar code was generated, you can use the

Displays the exact byte size of the bar code displayed in the preview area.
Total Package Size (page 2-23) is displayed at the bottom of the window.
Note: The sum of bar code size is typically larger than the package size.
Remote Path
Type in the location and filename where the EXM file should be deployed on the
terminal. For instance,
\ipsm\deviceconfig.exm (\Honeywell for 6100/6500)
Tap the browse button
to navigate to the location on the terminal. Your
ActiveSync connection must be active.

Simplified
Simplified is selected by default. This option simplifies the EXM file in the bar code,
which removes disabled sections, description information, and bar code settings (if
any), which decreases the size of the bar code. The open EXM file is not simplified.
The differences in total package size are displayed in the Package Size (page 2-23)
field. Individual bar code size can be seen in the Display (page 2-20) field.
# Bar codes to
generate
This is active only if the Always use minimum # bar codes (see page 2-22) is not
selected. When this slider is active, you can move the slider toward minimum or
maximum to change the number of bar codes generated. As you move the slider,
you’ll see the number of bar codes in the counter at the bottom of the window
and you’ll notice the graphic of the bar code in the preview area change.
Copy to Clipboard
Copies the bar code displayed in the preview area to the clipboard.
Use this option to paste the bar code into another application.
Save
Saves the bar code displayed in the preview area as a graphic file as a .png or .tiff.
By default, the name of the graphic file is the same as the name of the open EXM
file. You can enter a different name when saving.
Save All
Saves all bar codes in the package as individual graphic files.
By default, the graphic files are saved with the same name as the open EXM file with
a number at the end to distinguish the individual graphic files from each other.
Print
Opens the printing window where you can select print options and print the bar code
package. For details, see Printing and Saving Options on page 2-23.

finished
This option automatically launches a warm boot on the terminal after the bar code is
deployed. Use this options with EXM files that contain application information requiring a
warm boot to take effect, such as registry settings.
Deployment Options–These options determine how to deploy the EXM file embedded in the bar
code. For each deployment option selected, there are corresponding overwrite options under If
already exists, deploy:.
Replace remote
file
Replaces the existing file; no section-level merge modes are applied.
If already exists, deploy:
• Always—Select to always replace the existing file.
• Only if newer—Select to replace the existing file only if the file in the bar code is newer
than the existing.
• Never—Do not deploy the new file; this preserves the existing file.
• Prompt—EZConfig Client asks the user if they want to overwrite the existing file during
deployment.
Merge each
section…
(Default
selection)
Deploys information according to the section-level merge mode settings; see SectionLevel Merge Modes on page 2-10.
Temporary
Deploys the EXM file temporarily. The settings in the EXM file are applied, but the file does
not remain in the system after EZConfig Client is done.
If the terminal contains a previous EXM file with the same name, the previous EXM file is
preserved.
Persist Bar Code
Settings
Stores the settings from the Options, Bar Codes, and Web Page tabs within the EXM file
so that the same bar code settings are applied the next time a bar code is created. This
increases the size of both the EXM file and the bar code(s).
If already exists, deploy:
• Always—Select to always use the section-level merge mode settings.
• Only if newer—Select to use the section-level merge mode settings only if the sections
are newer than the existing file.
If the Simplify option is selected, bar code setting information is not included in the bar
code but remains in the open EXM file.

Converting Known INI and MNU Files
EZConfig Editor contains a batch conversion tool that converts known INI files on the terminal to the new
EXM file format.
EZConfig Editor pulls INI files from the \IPSM folder of a remote device, converts them to the EXM file
format, and saves both original INI files and the converted EXM files in folders created on the workstation.
You don’t lose your original INI files in the conversion.
Note: You must have an ActiveSync connection between the workstation and the device to use this tool.
Known INI and MNU Files
• *Autorun.ini
• RASMan.ini
• Scanwedge.ini
• RFSettings.ini
• ImageDemo.ini
• ScanDemo.ini
• *Any EZMenu file (*.ini or *.mnu)

Launching Associated Applications
The Tools menu contains an item named Launch Associated App.
Launch Associated App is enabled only when there is an application associated with the EXM file.
Selecting this item automatically saves the open EXM file and launches the associated application while
the EXM file remains open.
To see the associated application, tap File > Properties.
The Path field contains the launch location of the application.
The Args field contains any command line arguments to execute when the application launches.
For more information about associating applications, see Associating Applications on page 2-15.
Example 1 - You’ve saved changes to an open DeviceConfig.exm file.
To apply those changes immediately, tap Tools > Launch Associated App. Because the
DeviceConfig.exm file is associated with DeviceConfig.exe by default, DeviceConfig launches and
applies the settings in the DeviceConfig.exm file.
Example 2 - You’ve saved changes to an open registry document.
Because registry documents are always associated with EZConfig Client, tapping Tools > Launch
Associated App updates the registry. EZConfig Client always updates the registry when launched from
an EXM file that is a registry document.
Example 3 - You’ve saved changes to an open ScanWedge.exm file.
And that ScanWedge.exm file has the following parameters as the associated application:
Path: \program files\power tools\scanwedge.exe
Args: /restart
Tapping Tools > Launch Associated App refreshes ScanWedge with the new settings.

EZConfig Client
EZConfig Client decodes bar codes created in EZConfig Editor and deploys the data in the terminal. In
addition, if the EXM file in the bar code is associated with an application, EZConfig Client launches that
application, which then processes the decoded data.
EZConfig Client decodes bar codes with 40-bit and 128-bit encryption.
Storage Location
The EZConfig Client executable is stored in the \IPSM (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder.
For upgrades, EZConfig Client is located in the IPSM (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) image installed on the
workstation. This EXE must be copied and pasted into the \IPSM (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder on
the terminal. For more information, see Installing an Upgrade on the Terminal on page 1-9.
Using EZConfig Client
1.
On the Dolphin terminal, tap Start > Power Tools. The Dolphin Power Tools Main Window (see
page 1-2) opens.
You can scan the first bar code from the Power Tools main window by pressing the SCAN key; see
page 2-34 for details.
EZConfig Client can also be launched with a HotKey from any window; see page 2-34 for details.
2.
Tap EZConfig Utilities
3.
Point the terminal at the first EZConfig Editor bar code, then press the SCAN key.
4.
EZConfig Client decodes the bar code.
> EZConfig Editor
. The EZConfig Client window opens.
2 - 31
If there is only one bar code in the package, EZConfig Client deploys the package.
If there is more than one bar code in the package, EZConfig Client decodes the bar code, records that one bar
code has been read, and waits for the next scan.
5.
Scan all the bar codes in the package. Bar codes can be scanned in any order.
6.
When all bar codes in the package have been scanned, the EZConfig client deploys the data.
Note: If the EXM file is programmed to launch an application such as ScanWedge, a window pops up informing you
of initialization.
2 - 32
EXM File Processing
After decoding, EZConfig Client saves EXM files to the location in the terminal selected in the Remote
Path (page 2-20) field on the Bar Codes Tab (page 2-20). (If the Temporary, page 2-22, option is selected
in the bar code, EZConfig Client does not save the EXM file.)
There are two types of EXM files: configuration documents and registry documents. EZConfig Client
processes each type of file differently.
Configuration Documents
If the EXM file was associated with an application, EZConfig Client launches and deploys
the data to that application for processing.
Note: DeviceConfig.exm must be associated with DeviceConfig.exe to be processed on
the terminal appropriately. After decoding the bar code, EZConfig Client deploys the
data to DeviceConfig.exe, which applies the settings to the terminal.
Registry Documents Registry documents are always associated with EZConfig Client. The Execute option
(Execute, page 2-15) determines whether the registry is updated or not. If Execute is
selected, EZConfig Client updates the registry immediately after decoding the bar code.
Multiple Bar Codes
Some EXM files generate more than one bar code. If multiple bar codes were generated, EZConfig Client
recognizes that there is more than one bar code in the package and tracks each bar code scanned and
decoded. Bar codes can be scanned in any order, but EZConfig Client does not deploy the data until all
the bar codes in the package have been scanned.
EZConfig Client Window
Field
Description
Package ID
This is the ID of the entire package.
EZConfig Editor assigns an ID to bar code packages when creating the bar code.
Status
This field displays the decode status of the bar codes scanned so far.
If there is more than one bar code in the package, this field acts as a decode
counter.
The Status field displays:
• How many bar codes have been scanned and
• How many bar codes are in the package
Read # box
This box displays the list of bar codes scanned and decoded.
Accept Unsecure
This option allows EZConfig Client to scan bar codes that are not encrypted.
Note: By default, all bar codes created in EZConfig Editor are encrypted.
2 - 33
Scanning Bar Codes Directly from the Power Tools Main Window
When the Power Tools or Demos main windows are open, press the SCAN key and:
• If there is only one bar code in the package, EZConfig Client decodes and deploys the bar code without
opening the EZConfig Client window.
• If there are multiple bar codes in the package, EZConfig Client decodes the first bar code and opens
the EZConfig Client window showing that one bar code in the package has been scanned.
Launching EZConfig Client with a HotKey
Pressing ALT + SCAN launches EZConfig Client from any application window after you activate the
HotKeys Power Tool; see HotKeys on page 6-5.
ScanWedge
Bar code decoding in EZConfig Client is compatible with ScanWedge. You can set ScanWedge to pass
bar code information to EZConfig Client for further processing. For details, see Accept EZConfig on page
5-4.

DeviceConfig
Overview
DeviceConfig consists of the DeviceConfig.exe and the DeviceConfig.exm file located in the \IPSM
(\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder. DeviceConfig.exe looks for and applies the settings in the
DeviceConfig.exm file.
Note: On the Dolphin 7600, the DeviceConfig.exe is located in the \Program Files\Power Tools folder.
DeviceConfig.exm File
The DeviceConfig.exm file contains terminal configuration settings. Because this file is stored in the
\IPSM (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder, its configuration settings persist through cold boots and should
be considered system defaults.
Enabling DeviceConfig Functionality
By default, all sections except the About Section (see page 3-12) are disabled, which means that the key
values are not applied to the terminal. To use the DeviceConfig.exm file to configure the terminal, enable
the sections and keys required by your configuration in EZConfig Editor (page 2-2) on the workstation or
EZConfig Editor on the Terminal (page 2-27).
Autorun
Autorun (see page 4-1) launches DeviceConfig.exe, which applies the DeviceConfig.exm settings, then
launches a cold boot followed by a warm boot.
Bar Code Delivery
When the DeviceConfig.exm file is delivered to the terminal via bar code, EZConfig Client launches
DeviceConfig.exe automatically after decoding. DeviceConfig.exe then applies the settings in
theDeviceConfig.exm file in the terminal. For more information, see Creating Bar Codes (page 2-19) and
EZConfig Client (page 2-31).
The DeviceConfig.exm file must be associated with DeviceConfig.exe for EZConfig Client to launch
DeviceConfig.exe after decoding the bar code. In EZConfig Editor, the associated application path must
be
\IPSM\deviceconfig.exe (\Honeywell for 6100/6500)
For more information, see Associating Applications, page 2-15.
Settings in Control Panel Applets
Many settings in the DeviceConfig.exm file have matching Control Panel applets on the terminal that allow
the user to enter and save the same values. If a user changes a setting in the Control Panel applet on the
terminal, that setting is applied but stored in RAM memory and erased during the next cold boot. During
the next cold boot, Autorun launches DeviceConfig, which then re-applies the settings in the
DeviceConfig.exm file.
WLAN Settings
When enabled, the WiFi section of the DeviceConfig.exm file creates profiles that will
appear in the WLAN control panel applets. Those profiles will have the same names as the
value entered in the SSID (see page 3-4) key.
3-1
DeviceConfig.exm Sections and Keys
The sections and keys in the DeviceConfig.exm file are locked, which means that you can change values
but not names or descriptions.

Security Section
The Security section has no keys but two child sections: Supplicant and Non Supplicant.
Supplicant
Use this section to configure the WLAN radio on Dolphin 7850 terminals; see Supplicant
Section–Dolphin 7850 on page 3-4.
NonSupplicant
Use this section to configure the WLAN radio on Dolphin 7900 and 9500 terminals; see
NonSupplicant Section–Dolphins 7900 and 9500 on page 3-6.
Supplicant Section–Dolphin 7850
The Supplicant section consists of a number of child sections. The default child section is named Profile1
and contains all the keys necessary to create a configuration profile for the WLAN radio.
To create multiple radio configurations, copy the Profile1 section and paste it at the root level of the
Supplicant section. Then, rename that profile and configure the keys according the desired network
configuration. Each child section name is arbitrary, but each name must be different.
The Supplicant section contains one key named ActiveProfile. Type in the Value equal to name of one
of the desired profile child sections.
When DeviceConfig is activated on the terminal, the terminal will apply the settings in the profile specified
in the ActiveProfile key. If the ActiveProfile key does not have a matching profile, the radio will be enabled
by DeviceConfig but no specific radio configuration will be activated, which means that the radio will not
connect to your network.

Bluetooth Default Printer Values–Dolphins 7900 and 9500
In general, to establish a printer as a Bluetooth Favorite Device, you must establish the printer as a
Bluetooth Favorite on the terminal. The problem is that Bluetooth Favorite settings are stored in RAM
memory and therefore erased during each cold boot. The Default Printer section stores these settings
permanently in the DeviceConfig.exm file so the printer remains a Favorite after a hard reset.
Furthermore, you can distribute a DeviceConfig.exm file with the printer settings to multiple terminals.
After DeviceConfig.exe applies the settings in the DeviceConfig.exm file (launched manually or after a
hard reset), the printer is set up as a Favorite automatically, without any special configuration to each
terminal.
After you have established a printer as a Bluetooth Favorite Device on an individual terminal, obtain the
values for the Address and Service keys from the registry in RegEdit.

Launching DeviceConfig.exe
Because the settings in the User Interface section alter the AutoInstall process, DeviceConfig.exe must
be launched manually after the DeviceConfig.exm file is uploaded to the terminal. DeviceConfig.exe
processes the DeviceConfig.exm file and applies this setting before the next hard reset.
3 - 13
If DeviceConfig.exe is not launched manually prior to the next hard reset, this setting is not applied and
the Welcome screens appear during the next startup. Then, when Autorun launches DeviceConfig.exe
during startup, this setting is applied and the Welcome screens are removed from the next hard reset.
See Launching DeviceConfig.exe Manually on page 3-17.
Autorun.ini
When the Welcome section is enabled and applied by DeviceConfig.exe, a small Autorun.ini file is created
in the \IPSM folder. This .ini file contains the Welcome screen information. Do not remove this created
file!

The percentage split you are able to enter is specific to each terminal’s memory configuration. Min/max
ranges can be retrieved from SysInfo or SetRAM.
• See RAM INFO on page 6-21.
• See SetRAM Window on page 11-2.
AutoInstall
When the RAM section is enabled on Windows Mobile 5.0-based devices, AutoInstall.exe launches
DeviceConfig in a mode that checks only the memory allocation in the RAM section of DeviceConfig.exm
against the terminal’s current memory allocation.
If there is a discrepancy and the Prompt key in the RAM section is enabled, a prompt appears asking if
you want to apply the memory allocation in DeviceConfig. If there is a discrepancy and the Prompt key in
the RAM section is disabled, the memory allocation in DeviceConfig is applied.
Note: AutoInstall.exe launches the RAM section of DeviceConfig prior to installing cab files. No other DeviceConfig
settings are applied at this time.

The Bar Codes Tab (see page 2-20) in EZConfig Editor contains a Temporary option (see page 2-22)
that, when selected during bar code creation, applies the settings in the DeviceConfig.exm file
temporarily, which means until the next cold boot.
In the terminal, EZConfig Client deploys the DeviceConfig.exm file and launches DeviceConfig.exe, which
applies the settings in the DeviceConfig.exm file as usual. However, when the Temporary option is
selected, the DeviceConfig.exm file is not saved after processing is finished. The original file is preserved
instead, and its settings will be restored during the next cold boot.

Startup Power Tools
Overview
Startup is the launch sequence when a Dolphin terminal is booted.
There are two startup Power Tools:
1.
Autorun (see page 4-1)
2.
AutoInstall (see page 4-7)
Autorun
Autorun specifies the software applications to launch after each hard reset. Autorun is located in the \IPSM
(\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder and consists of an Autorun.exe
that is programmed by the
Autorun.exm File (page 4-1)
.
During startup, after a soft or hard reset, the operating system looks for and launches \IPSM\Autorun.exe
(\Honeywell for 6100/6500). If the Autorun.exe is configured (by Autorun.exm) to launch an application,
that application launches when Autorun.exe launches. Autorun can launch up to 32 applications or utility
programs after each hard reset.
Note: The Autorun.exm file allows applications to be launched based on conditional situations, including the return
code of another application launched previously and specific characteristics of the Dolphin terminal itself.
Autorun.exm File
The Autorun.exm file has a multi-level tree structure. There are two top level sections: Settings and
Programs.
Settings Section
The Settings section stores general Autorun settings.
• See Settings Section Keys—Dolphins 7850, 7900, & 9500 on page 4-2.
• See Settings Section Keys—Dolphin 6100/6500/7600 on page 4-2.
Programs Section
The Programs section contains many child sections and determines the sequence of events at startup,
including which programs launch and when.
Program Sections and Launch Sequence
Each section is a program to launch at startup. The sequence of sections determines the launch
sequence on the terminal; the terminal reads this file consecutively. To change the launch sequence,
move the section up or down in the list; see Working with Sections (page 2-7).
4-1
Enabling and Disabling Sections
If you don’t want to the application to launch at startup, you can delete the section. However, program
sections contain settings you’ll want to keep when adding that same application back to startup. To keep
the program section in the file for future reference, disable the program section instead of deleting it.
Disabled sections appear in gray.
When processing files, the terminal behaves as though disabled sections are not there and moves on to
the next enabled section.

Battery Analyzer
Overview
The Battery Analyzer Power Tool helps you manage battery power.
Requirements
For the Battery Analyzer to work, you must have the following items installed on the Dolphin terminal in
the following locations:
• The BatteryAnalyzer.exe is stored in the \Program Files\Power Tools folder.
• The BatteryAnalyzer.exm is stored in the \IPSM folder.
• The Battalyzer.dll is stored in the \Windows folder.
When all of these items are installed, the Battery Analyzer icon
Tools Main Window (see page 1-2).
appears on the Dolphin Power
Operating Temperature=0°—50°C
The operating temperature of the battery must be between 0°C and 50°C. If you attempt to
analyze a battery when the operating temperature is outside this range, the analyze cycle
stops. You will be notified that the analyze cycle was aborted due to temperatures below 0°C
or above 50°C. If this happens, recharge the battery.
AC Power Supply
You must have a continuous supply of AC power to the terminal and installed battery prior to
analyzing. If you attempt to analyze a battery and AC power is interrupted, the analyze process
stops. You will be notified that the analyze cycle was aborted due to AC power interruptions.
If this happens, recharge the battery.
Recommendation
Batteries should be analyzed only once every three months.
7-1
Analyzing a Battery
During the analyze cycle, the installed battery charges to 100%, then drains it to 0%, then charges it back
up to 100%.
When the operating temperature of the battery is between 0°C and 50°C and there is a constant AC
supply to the terminal and battery, tap Start > Power Tools > Battery Analyzer. The Battery Analyzer
main window displays specific battery information for your review, including the operating temperature.
The status bar at the top of
the window shows the
progress of the analyze
cycle.
The text box at the bottom
of the window displays the
details of the analyze cycle.
Note: The Charge Status field indicates if the installed battery is charging or fully charged.
The Estimated Time field displays the amount of time it will take to complete a full cycle.
Analyze Cycle Steps
There are three steps to the analyze cycle:
Step 1:
The battery charges to 100%.
Step 2:
The battery discharges to 0%.
Step 3:
The battery re-charges to 100%.
Automatic Shut Down
The analyze cycle aborts if:
• The operating temperature drops below 0°C or above 50°C.
• AC power is lost.
The text box at the bottom of the window displays the details about why the process aborted.
Stopping an Analyze Cycle
You can stop the analyze cycle manually any time by tapping the File menu in the command bar. Tap
Stop Analyzing or Start Analyzing.

RegEdit
Overview
The registry is the configuration database in all 32-bit versions of Windows that contains settings for the
hardware and software, consisting of the SYSTEM.DAT and USER.DAT files. Many settings previously
stored in the WIN.ini and SYSTEM.ini files in 16-bit Windows (Windows 3.x) are in the registry.

Other Export Options
You can export
• The entire registry–see Backing Up the Registry on page 8-6.
• Radio settings–see Backup Radio Settings on page 10-12.
Backing Up the Registry
Note: For the Dolphin 7600, see RegBackup on page 8-11.
You can export the current registry by tapping the RegBackup icon on the Dolphin Power Tools Main
Window (see page 1-2)
. A _RegBackup.reg file containing the entire registry is created and stored
in the \IPSM\Autoinstall (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder.
Because this REG file is stored in the \IPSM\Autoinstall (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder,
Autoinstall will launch and install this REG file during the next cold boot.
8-6
Restoring the Registry
Note: For the Dolphin 7600, see RegRestore on page 8-12.
After you have backed up the registry, a _RegBackup.reg file of the entire registry is stored in the
\IPSM\Autoinstall (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder.
You have a number of options to restore the registry by loading the _RegBackup.reg file.
RegRestore
On the Dolphin Power Tools Main Window (see page 1-2), tap the RegRestore icon
.
Tap on the REG File
Tapping on a REG file in any folder immediately tries to add the information in that file to the registry. A
message appears asking if you want to add the information to the registry. Tap Yes to add the information.
Cold Boot
Because this REG file is stored in the \IPSM\Autoinstall (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder,
Autoinstall will launch and install this REG file during the next cold boot.
8-7
RegBackup
The RegBackup.exm file is located in the \IPSM (\Honeywell for 6100/6500) folder and determines the
content of the _RegBackup.reg file.
The RegBackup.exm file does NOT contain registry settings! Only REG files contain registry settings.
Sections
_TEMPLATE_ Section The _TEMPLATE_ section is a template of the basic registry sections. This section is not
used when creating the _RegBackup.reg file. Use these subsections as a basis for
modifications and additions to the file.
Backup Section
When you backup the registry (see Backing Up the Registry on page 8-6), the include/
exclude settings in this section indicate what content to backup.
This default section should never be removed as it contains default excludes specified by
Honeywell. It can, however be added to. Do NOT change the Mode (page 8-9)!
SyChip & Philips Sections
When you backup radio settings (see Backup Radio Settings on page 10-12), the include/
exclude settings in this section indicate what content to backup.
Modifying
Modifying the RegBackup.exm file allows you to include or exclude registry key sections and values
during an export. Multiple subsections can be created below. All should be copied from the Template
section which, itself, should not be modified.
To specify keys and values in the RegBackup.exm file, re-create the registry keys as sections and
subsections in the tree structure just as they appear in the registry. The same rules that apply to copying
directories apply here in that if you re-create a key from the registry, all the key’s values and subkey’s
values will be copied unless there are values in the top-level key.
These registry values will be
included in the
_RegBackup.reg file.
Only the key or value name is needed in the EXM file and not the associated value data. The EXM file is
a structure used to define the backup file and not the actual registry data.
8-8
Mode and Kernel Check
In each Subsection root in the tree, there should be two key-value pairs: Mode and KernelCheck.
If these keys are not present, the defaults will be applied:
Mode=Exclude
KernelCheck=Enabled
Mode
The Mode key specifies export behavior of the values in the section.
1=Include
Only the values that follow will be included.
0=Exclude
Everything but the values that follow will be included.
KernelCheck
KernelCheck forces kernel version and service pack validation when a previously exported REG file is
imported on a Dolphin terminal. This means that if you attempt to load a _RegBackup.reg file (during
AutoInstall, for example), RegBackup.exm verifies that the REG file matches the kernel installed on the
terminal. If yes, then the REG file loads. If not, you’ll receive a warning message and the REG file will not
load.
0=Disabled
No kernel validation occurs on importing. In general (especially for radio settings),
KernelCheck should be enabled. if the registry does not match the kernel, the terminal will
not function properly.
1=Enabled
Kernel validation occurs on importing.
8-9

SetRAM
Overview
SetRAM enables you to reconfigure the memory distribution on Windows Mobile 5.0-based Dolphin
terminals.
Note: SetRAM is disabled on Dolphin terminals with Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition,
and Windows CE 5.0 software.
Windows Mobile 5.0 Memory
The Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system is designed to use a persistent file store rather than the RAM
object store used by all previous versions of Pocket PC and Windows Mobile software.
This change eliminated the need for the memory slider that allowed you to dynamically adjust the amount
of RAM allocated to program memory versus file store in the Memory control applet. Now, the Memory
control panel applet shows the current memory allocation but does not allow you to change it.
On Windows Mobile 5.0-based devices, the allocation of file system RAM versus program memory must
be made during hard resets. This change is a challenge in devices that use the RAM based file systems
because there is no way to predict individual application requirements of program memory vs. RAM file
store.
Dolphin Terminal Memory Configuration
On Dolphin terminals, the default memory allocation between file store and program memory is 50/50.
SetRAM Power Tool adjusts the division of program memory vs. file system memory on Dolphin
terminals.
11 - 1
Accessing SetRAM
1.
On the Dolphin Power Tools Main Window (see page 1-2), tap the SetRAM icon
window displays the current memory distribution.
. The SetRAM
2.
To change the memory allocation, use the slider to adjust the memory allocation:
File MB=File Storage Memory
Prog MB=Program Memory
3.
Tap Set RAM Allocation to make the change.
4.
The terminal launches a hard reset, then a soft reset.
This reset process launches AutoInstall, which launches DeviceConfig’s RAM memory allocation
settings. Therefore, make sure that the RAM section is disabled in DeviceConfig.exm or that it
contains the same memory settings as SetRAM. For more information, see RAM Memory Allocation
in DeviceConfig on page 11-2.
RAM Memory Allocation in DeviceConfig
DeviceConfig contains a RAM section (see page 3-14) that–if enabled–sets the RAM memory allocation
for the terminal during startup. Dolphin terminals default to the RAM allocation in DeviceConfig.
Therefore, if you want the changes you make in SetRAM to persist through hard resets, make sure that
the RAM section in DeviceConfig disabled or, if enabled, matches the parameters in SetRAM.
For more information about DeviceConfig, see RAM Section on page 3-14.

Print Power Tools
Overview
Dolphin terminals contain two print utilities:
BTPrint.exe
BTPrint prints to a Bluetooth device via the Bluetooth wireless radio; see page 12-1.
The EXE is located in the \Program Files\Power Tools folder.
Print Demo
All Dolphin terminals contain a Print Demo (Start > Demos > Print Demo) that prints a sample receipt or
bar code to a Bluetooth printer. The Print Demo calls the BTPrint.exe when printing to a Bluetooth device.
For more information about the Print Demo, please refer to the Print Demo chapter of the Demos User’s
Guide, which is available on the User CD or from the web site: www.honeywellaidc.com.
Note: You can also call the EXE to print to a Bluetooth printer via the command line.
BTPrint
BTPrint allows you to print to a Bluetooth printer via the command line, provided that the Bluetooth printer
is set up as a Bluetooth Favorite on the Dolphin terminal.
For more information about setting up Bluetooth Favorite devices, please see the Bluetooth section of the
Print Demo chapter in the Demos User’s Guide, which is available on the User CD or from the Partners
area of www.honeywellaidc.com.
Calling a Bluetooth Printer
Call BTPrint.exe from the command line – \Program Files\Power Tools\BTPrint.exe – with the
path of the document as the command line argument.
