Chapter 1 — About Device Cloning
About CloneNGo
CloneNGo is a peer-to-peer device cloning application that easily
transfers the configuration of a master computer to one or more
clone (client) computers. You can clone:
•
device settings.
•
files.
•
applications.
•
registry settings.
•
licenses.
•
the operating system.
You can also use CloneNGo to create and manage unique device
settings for each mobile computer in your data collection system.
Supported Computers
CloneNGo is supported by these operating systems used in the
following mobile computers:
•
•
Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Handheld 6.5 with firmware
version 1.50 or later:
•
CK3R
•
CK3X
•
CK70, CK71, CN70, CN70e (70 Series)
•
Ci70
Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7 (CE 7.0):
•
Thor™ CV31
About Master and Client Computers
To clone data from one computer to another, you configure a master
(server) computer that sends its complete configuration to one or
more clone (client) computers. Only computers of the same type,
family, and model (TFM) can exchange cloning data with each other.

This example describes the type, family, and model for a CK3R
computer:

Type
C
The first character of the hardware version.
Family
K

Model
3R
The third and fourth character of the hardware
version.
When you start CloneNGo on a client computer using the ad hoc
cloning method, the client computer looks for a master that is most
similar to it. For example, if a client finds a master with the identical
hardware configuration, it transfers cloning data from that master. If
the client computer cannot find a master with identical hardware, the
client transfers data from the first master it finds with the same TFM.
About the Device Cloning Methods
You can use either a wireless ad hoc network or storage device to
transfer data from the master to the client computers.
Note: You must use a storage device to clone CV31 computers.
How to Use a Wireless Ad Hoc Network
When you run CloneNGo on a master computer, the computer
creates an ad hoc network for client computers to join. This
temporary peer-to-peer network is created specifically to clone data
from the master to the client computer.
How to Use a Storage Device
You can copy the cloning files from the master computer to an SD
card or USB storage device, and then clone the client computers from
the storage device.
CloneNGo User Guide

Chapter 1 — About Device Cloning
This method is useful in these situations:
•
Your master computer is not within radio range of the computers
you want to clone.
•
You have a large amount of data you want to clone, and it may
take too long to send the data through a Wi-Fi connection.
•
You cannot continuously supply power to the computers you want
to clone. For example, a CV31 installed on a vehicle is powered
when the vehicle is on, but it is not practical to leave the vehicle on.
•
You want to clone computers at a remote location. So, you send
the cloning files electronically to the System Administrator at the
remote location, and the System Administrator puts the cloning
files on a storage device.
You need a USB accessory to clone computers with a USB storage
device:
•
CK3R/CK3X: insert the computer in an AD20 dock, which has a
USB connector.
•
70 Series: insert the computer in a DX1 dock, which has a USB
connector.
•
CV31: connect a USB adapter cable to the CV31.

How to Configure Registry Settings
To create or change registry settings on client computers, you need to:
•
create a registry settings XML file and copy it to the master
computer.
•
use a CloningEx.xml file to transfer the registry settings XML file
from the master computer to client computers.
Create the Registry Settings XML File
Create a registry settings XML file to add, delete, or modify registry
keys, values, or data on a client . For more information on modifying
registry settings, go to the MSDN website at www.msdn.com.

How to Use a Cloned Computer as a Master
Any cloned computer can function as a master computer. However,
when certain types of files are transferred from a master to a clone,
they are processed (XML files) or installed (CAB files) and then
deleted. So, these files do not exist on the cloned computer to be
transferred to another computer. To make sure that these files are
available on the cloned computer, you need to copy them to two
different locations: one copy is processed or installed, and the
other copy is available to transfer to another computer. Use a
CloningEx.xml file to specify the locations.

cloning.
Problems and Possible Solutions
Problem
Solution
The client computer hangs when
searching for the master computer.
• The client and master computer are too far away from
each other. Move the computers closer together.
• There is an error in the cloning process. Check the
Cloning Details tab for more information.
• Restart the CloneNGo application.
• Open ISpyWiFi and make sure the master / client are on
the same channel AND have the same ESSID and BSSID
• Make sure the master and clone computer have the
appropriate IP address. For example, the IP address
should have the format 1.x.x.x.
• Make sure the master computer’s SSID is in the scan
list. To do this, go to the Scan folder and press the Scan
button,
• Make sure the client computer can ping the master
computer. To make sure the client can ping the master,
go to the Ping tab within the ISpyWiFi application.
The OS upgrade continues
indefinitely when you remove the
computer from the computer dock.
Place the computer in the computer dock again.
You are stuck in an endless loop
trying to download files in the
manifest received from the master.
File element Source attribute should only resolve to items
on the removable media. For example, locations that are
not wiped out by the OS upgrade.
All subfolders are included in the
clone.
By default, subfolder recursion is enabled when you use the
wildcard character in a path. Use the IncludeSubFolders
attribute to disable recursion:
<File Source=”\My Documents\*.tsk”
Dest=”My Documents” IncludeSubFolders=”0”
/>
CloneEx.xml has a CommandLine
attribute value with spaces and is
enclosed by the &quot; entity. The
command line parameter is not
processed correctly in CloneNGo.
• If the parameter is a path, set up CloneEx.xml to use
34
paths that do not contain spaces (if possible).
• Download a CloneNGo version 6.90.00.0237 or later.
