How Do I Find Out What’s On My CD?

The Companion CD is located in the box and contains:

Microsoft ActiveSync 3.7.1

Microsoft Outlook 2002

HP iPAQ hx2000 Series Pocket PC User’s Guide

Know Your Options (Accessories Information)

Important Safety Information

Note: All of the documents located on the Companion CD are in printable format if you prefer a hard copy document.

1

All of the software and documents are designed to be installed on your personal computer to enhance your ability to use your

HP iPAQ Pocket PC to its fullest potential. The CD also contains

Pocket PC enhancements that can be installed directly onto your

Pocket PC for use “on the go.”

Note:

It is recommended that you save the original packaging for the CD because the Microsoft product key for installing

Microsoft Outlook is located on the sticker on the CD packaging.

You will need that information if you ever need to reinstall

Outlook on your personal computer.

How Do I Install Microsoft ActiveSync?

Microsoft ActiveSync, located on the Companion CD, is the software that allows your Pocket PC and your personal computer to communicate with each other.

Before you connect your Pocket PC to your computer, insert the

Companion CD into your computer and let the HP iPAQ Setup

Wizard guide you step-by-step in setting up your Pocket PC and computer.

Note:

If the HP iPAQ Setup Wizard detects an earlier version of ActiveSync or Outlook on your computer, it prompts you to install the most recent version from the Companion CD. It is recommended that you do so; however, be sure to back up your files before installation begins.

To run the HP iPAQ Setup Wizard and install Microsoft

ActiveSync:

1. Before you connect your Pocket PC to your computer with the synchronization cable, insert the Companion CD that came with your Pocket PC into the CD-ROM drive on your computer. The HP iPAQ Setup Wizard starts automatically.

2

2. Select Setup Wizard.

3. Read the Welcome page, make sure your Pocket PC is not yet connected to your computer, and select Next.

4. The Setup Wizard scans your system and recommends programs for you to load. If the Setup Wizard detects an earlier version of Microsoft Outlook installed on your personal computer, it suggests installing Outlook 2002. If you want to synchronize your calendar, contacts, inbox, notes, and/or tasks, it is recommended that you allow the Setup

Wizard to install Outlook 2002. Earlier versions (such as

Microsoft Outlook Express) will not work with ActiveSync and the Pocket PC.

5. Likewise, the Setup Wizard scans your system to detect earlier versions of Windows Media Player and HP Image

Zone. It is recommended that you allow the Wizard to install these programs in order to take advantage of all functions on your Pocket PC.

6. When the Set Up Microsoft ActiveSync window displays, click Next.

3

7. When the Select Installation Folder for Microsoft

ActiveSync window displays, accept the default location offered, or select Change... to specify a different location.

8. When the File Download window displays, click Open.

4

You will know ActiveSync installed successfully when you see the Set Up a Partnership screen. Proceed to the next section,

“How Do I Create an ActiveSync Partnership?”

Note:

If you are having trouble installing ActiveSync and have firewall software installed, try disabling the firewall software during ActiveSync installation and enabling it again after installation is complete. If you are connected to a corporate firewall, contact your IT Administrator for assistance.

How Do I Create an ActiveSync

Partnership?

A Microsoft ActiveSync partnership allows your HP iPAQ Pocket

PC and your personal computer to communicate with each other.

To synchronize your Pocket PC and your personal computer, you must first create a partnership using ActiveSync. You only need to create a partnership once.

These instructions give information on creating a basic partnership. Other partnership options are available, and instructions can be found in Chapter 2, “Synchronizing with Your

Computer,” of the User’s Guide located on the Companion CD.

To create an ActiveSync partnership between your Pocket PC and your personal computer:

1. When the Get Connected screen is displayed during

ActiveSync installation, connect the HP Desktop Cradle to your personal computer by attaching the free end of either the

USB cable or the serial cable to either the USB port or the serial port on your personal computer. Then connect one end of the AC Adapter to the cradle and the other end to an electrical outlet.

2. Turn on your Pocket PC by pressing the Power button, then insert it into the desktop cradle.

5

3. When the Set Up a Partnership screen displays, select

Standard Partnership and click Next.

4. When the New Partnership screen displays, select

Synchronize with this desktop computer, then click Next.

6

5. When the Select Number of Partnerships screen displays, choose whether you want to synchronize with one computer or two (e.g., home and office).

6. When the Select Synchronization Settings screen displays, check the items you want to synchronize between your

Pocket PC and your personal computer.

7. When the Setup Complete screen displays, click Finish.

ActiveSync immediately begins synchronizing.

How Do I Synchronize My Pocket PC to a Personal Computer?

Synchronizing your Pocket PC and your personal computer allows you to keep the same information (such as calendar, contacts, and e-mails) in both places, making it available when you work on your personal computer or when you take your

Pocket PC on the go. There are several ways to synchronize your

Pocket PC with your personal computer:

HP Desktop Cradle (not included with all models)

Autosync cable (not included with all models)

Bluetooth

Infrared

Wi-Fi and a server

To synchronize your personal computer and your Pocket PC using the desktop cradle:

1. Be sure ActiveSync is installed on your personal computer.

Refer to “How Do I Install Microsoft ActiveSync?” earlier in

this document for more information.

2. Plug the AC Adapter into an electrical outlet and connect the other end of the AC Adapter to the AC connector on the desktop cradle.

3. Slide the bottom of your Pocket PC into the desktop cradle and push firmly to seat it.

CAUTION: To avoid damaging your Pocket PC or the cradle, check to be sure the Pocket PC and cradle connectors are properly aligned before pushing the Pocket PC into the HP Desktop Cradle.

4. Connect the USB Cable to the USB port on your computer.

Synchronization begins automatically.

9

To synchronize your personal computer and your Pocket PC using the autosync cable:

1. Be sure ActiveSync is installed on your personal computer.

Refer to “How Do I Install Microsoft ActiveSync?” earlier in

this document for more information.

2. Plug the AC Adapter into an electrical outlet, then connect the other end of the AC Adapter to the AC connector on the autosync cable.

3. Connect the 22-pin connector on the autosync cable to the universal sync connector on the bottom of your iPAQ Pocket

PC.

Ä

CAUTION: To avoid damaging your Pocket PC or the autosync cable, be sure the Pocket PC and cable connectors are properly aligned before pushing the cable into the universal sync connector.

4. Connect the other end of the autosync cable to the USB port on your computer. Synchronization begins automatically.

Ä

Note:

If you must log onto a server such as your company’s

Virtual Private Network, you may receive a message from

ActiveSync telling you it is unable to synchronize. You must first log onto the server for ActiveSync to synchronize.

If ActiveSync does not begin synchronizing, start it manually:

On your personal computer, open ActiveSync by clicking from the Start menu > Programs > Microsoft ActiveSync > Sync.

Occasionally when attempting to synchronize to a personal computer, you might receive an “Unable to Detect Device” error message. This usually means your desktop cradle is not properly connected to the synchronization cable, or your Pocket PC is not seated firmly in the desktop cradle.

10

If you get this error:

1. Make sure the USB connector on the synchronization cable is securely connected to your desktop cradle and your personal computer.

2. Make sure that your Pocket PC is connected to the communications port in the desktop cradle.

Once the connection issue is resolved, ActiveSync begins synchronizing automatically.

To find out how to resolve other error messages, see Chapter 12,

“Troubleshooting,” in the User’s Guide located on the

Companion CD.

Do you want to learn more about:

■ synchronizing using Bluetooth?

■ synchronizing using Infrared?

synchronizing using Wi-Fi and a server?

Refer to the User’s Guide on the Companion CD.

11

How Do I Synchronize My Messaging,

Contacts, or Calendar?

If you did not previously set up your Messaging, Contacts, or

Calendar to synchronize with your Pocket PC when ActiveSync was first loaded, you can set it or remove the setting whenever you want.

To synchronize a new selection with your Pocket PC:

1. Double-click the Microsoft ActiveSync icon in the system tray of your personal computer.

2. In the ActiveSync Window, click Options > Sync Options tab.

3. On the Sync Options page, check the items you want synchronized and uncheck those you do not want synchronized.

Note:

It is recommended that you check the Synchronize mobile device clock upon connecting so your Pocket PC and your personal computer always agree on the date and time. If this box is not checked, files can accidentally be overwritten during synchronization due to differences in dates and times on the files.

4. Under the Schedule tab, choose whether you want to synchronize Continuously, On connection, or Manually. If necessary, you can also select options for scheduling synchronization with a server, or using a wireless connection.

5. Click OK to save the settings and minimize the ActiveSync window.

6. The items selected automatically synchronize with the Pocket

PC when it is inserted in the HP Desktop Cradle and the computer is turned on.

12

28

How Do I Enable/Disable

HP ProtectTools on My Pocket PC?

HP ProtectTools helps protect your Pocket PC by providing authentication and encryption of e-mail, calendar, contacts, notes, tasks, and/or all files stored in the My Documents folder. It can also be used to encrypt data stored on expansion cards.

When you enable HP ProtectTools, you have the option of enrolling a fingerprint or entering a PIN and/or password to access the Pocket PC. If you are unable to successfully swipe your fingerprint or you forget your PIN or password, you can access the device with a backup question and answer.

Ä

CAUTION: HP ProtectTools helps protect your Pocket PC and the data stored on it. If you are unable to access your device with any of the above methods, there is no way to unlock your device. You have to restore your device to factory settings, resulting in the loss of all data on your iPAQ Pocket PC, including data stored in iPAQ File

Store. It is recommended that you remember your PIN/password and question/answer.

Setting Up Security

You should only need to set up security one time. You can make changes to any of your security settings at a later time without going through the setup procedure again.
