Introduction
Overview
Wavelink®Avalanche Mobility Center™ (Avalanche MC) is a remote client management system that is designed to distribute
software and configuration updates to monitored devices, including LXE® computers with Microsoft® Windows® CE.
Additionally, the Avalanche MC Console may provide support for other devices on a network at the discretion of the system
administrator.
Avalanche uses a multi-tier software architecture:
l
Avalanche Mobility Center Console (Avalanche Management Console in previous versions)
l
Avalanche Mobile Device Server (Avalanche Agent in previous versions)
l
Avalanche Enabler
l
Avalanche Remote Control (optional component)
Avalanche Mobility Center Console and the Avalanche Mobile Device Server run on a desktop PC.
Avalanche Enabler runs on the monitored devices.
This document contains a brief overview of Avalanche MC and how LXE computers with Microsoft Windows CE operating
systems can be managed by Avalanche MC. LXE provides additional functionality for LXE CE computers using Avalanche
MC. This additional functionality is discussed in this reference guide.
This document also explains the functioning of the Wavelink Avalanche Enabler running on an LXE mobile device.
This document assumes the user has a basic familiarity with the Wavelink Avalanche MC system and Microsoft Office
Windows terms and graphical standards. For detailed and technical information for the Avalanche MC Console running on a
desktop PC, refer to the Wavelink Avalanche Mobility Center User’s Guide. This document is available for download from the
Wavelink website, www.wavelink.com.
eXpress Config is an LXE value-add component for integration with the Avalanche MC Console. eXpress Config enables the
system administrator to create software package files including software configuration parameters. These packages are
compatible with the Avalanche MC Console and the Mobile Device Server downloads these packages to LXE mobile devices.
Contact your LXE representative for eXpress Config availability.
eXpress Config also allows a user to print configuration barcodes for an LXE computer. The barcodes can be scanned by the
eXpress Scan utility on the LXE device to provide initial configuration.
The Avalanche Enabler Process
In the typical installation, the LXE computer, or mobile device, is connected wirelessly to an access point.
The access point is then connected via a wired network to the PC running the Avalanche Mobile Device Server.
The Avalanche Enabler, running on the mobile computer, initiates communication with the Mobile Device Server.
This occurs automatically following a mobile device reboot.
Once a connection is made with a Mobile Device Server, the Enabler can be configured to control the wireless and network
settings of the mobile device. The Enabler can also receive downloads, from the Mobile Device Server, of any software
packages made available by the system administrator.
The Mobile Device Server PC records the date and time of the contact and reviews the software load and configuration
settings (wireless and network settings and Terminal Emulation parameters) on the LXE mobile device. If there are any
software updates or configuration setting changes scheduled for the LXE device, the update is performed at this time.
Once connected to the Avalanche Mobile Device Server, the LXE mobile device Enabler continues running in the background,
monitoring and processing updates and system information as needed. The monitoring is performed by a separate application,
Monitor.exe, which is installed as part of the Enabler CAB file. The Monitor executable is responsible for locating the
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 1 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Avalanche MC Console
Avalanche Mobile Device Server and processing all updated information. This information can be configured by the system
administrator using the Avalanche MC Console application and then sent to the Mobile Device Server, and then to the mobile
computer.
Once the Enabler Monitor receives the data it will apply all new settings, install all software, and provide the user with details,
including any reboots that are needed.
For LXE packages, the Monitor application downloads package files to the RMU folder on the mobile device’s persistent
storage card. The Monitor application then launches the Remote Management Utility (RMU). The RMU performs the updates
for the LXE packages. The RMU is also launched during bootup to restore the package’s configuration settings.
Additional functionality of the Enabler can be accessed through a password protected Enabler user interface on the mobile
device. This Enabler functionality, which will be explained in further detail later in this guide, includes:
l
Connection to Mobile Device Server method
l
Connection parameters to the Mobile Device Server
l
Start-up parameters
l
Network and Wireless monitoring and control
Avalanche MC Console
The Avalanche MC Console is a Windows desktop application.
It can be run from any location on the network and can be used with multiple Mobile Device Servers as long as there is an IP or
network connection between the PC with the Avalanche MC Console and the PC (or multiple PCs) running the Mobile Device
Server service.
The Avalanche MC Console and the Mobile Device Server may also be installed on the same PC.
The Avalanche MC Console does not communicate directly with the managed devices. Instead, the Avalanche MC Console
communicates with the Mobile Device Server and the Mobile Device Server communicates with the managed devices.
Avalanche MC Console version 4.2 or greater supports the Avalanche Enablers designed for LXE mobile devices with
Windows CE operating systems.
eXpress Config
eXpress Config can be used to create and configure LXE software packages for distribution from the Avalanche MC Console.
Avalanche Mobile Device Server
The Avalanche Mobile Device Server is installed on a desktop or laptop PC and runs/functions as a Windows service. The
Mobile Device Server starts automatically and monitors for communications from devices running Avalanche Enablers that are
connected to the same network.
The Avalanche MC Console can connect to or disconnect from the Mobile Device Server. Even when the Avalanche MC
Console is not connected to the Mobile Device Server, the Mobile Device Server continues to monitor for communications
from the Enablers.
Avalanche Enablers
Avalanche Enablers are installed on the devices to be monitored. The Enabler maintains a record of the software updates and
configuration parameters on the monitored device. This information is communicated to the Mobile Device Server running as a
Windows service on a desktop PC. The Mobile Device Server sends updated software and configuration parameters to the
monitored devices as applicable.
The Enabler performs several functions:
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 2 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Remote Management Utility (RMU)
l
Reports revision levels of software currently loaded on the monitored device.
l
Receives and installs software and configuration updates from the Mobile Device Server.
l
Prompts the User for reboots as necessary during the installation/configuration process.
Remote Management Utility (RMU)
The LXE Remote Management Utility (RMU) is installed on all LXE devices during manufacturing.
Note: For devices manufactured before April 2007, the RMU must be installed by the user. Contact your LXE
representative for necessary upgrades.
The RMU maintains records of all LXE packages that have been downloaded to the device. The RMU is launched by the
Enabler each time an LXE package is updated.
The RMU performs several functions:
l
Identifies and installs LXE packages.
l
Applies settings for LXE packages configured by eXpress Config.
l
Removes LXE packages that have been deleted by the Enabler.
l
Updates real-time properties which are communicated back to the Mobility Center Console via the Mobile Device
Server.
Avalanche Remote Control
Avalanche Remote Control is an add-on for Avalanche MC. Remote control provides the administrator the ability to remotely
view the mobile device’s desktop and enter data into the mobile device.
LXE Device Skins
LXE skins work with Avalanche Remote Control. The skins enable Remote Control to display an image of the LXE mobile
device being managed. The skin provides:
l
l
An image of the LXE device including the display
An image of the LXE device keypad. Keypresses performed via Remote Control function the same as if the keys were
pressed on the LXE device.
eXpress Scan
The eXpress Scan utility allows an administrator to scan barcodes to provide the initial network and Avalanche Mobile Device
Server address configuration. This eliminates the need to edit radio parameters manually on the LXE device.
eXpress Scan uses barcodes created with eXpress Config.

Enabler Installation and Configuration
Introduction
This section discusses LXE supported features with Wavelink Avalanche Mobile Device Servers. This section is split into
three basic areas:
l
Installation
l
User Interface
l
Enabler Configuration
Installation
To use the Wavelink Avalanche MC System, the following items are required:
l
l
A desktop or laptop PC on which to install the Avalanche MC Console.
A desktop or laptop PC on which to install the Avalanche Mobile Device Server (this can be the same PC where the Avalanche MC Console is installed).
l
Wavelink Avalanche MC Console 4.2 or later.
l
A Wavelink Device License for each client device.
l
LXE supported mobile devices with Enablers installed.
To use Avalanche Remote Control, the follow additional items are required:
l
Wavelink Remote Control plug-in, 2.0 or later
l
A Wavelink Remote Control License for each client device
Installing the Enabler on LXE Devices
l
l
LXE CE devices (listed in the section titled LXE Supported Devices) have the Avalanche Enabler installation files
loaded, but not installed, on the mobile device when it is shipped from LXE. The installation files are located in the \System folder on CE devices.
LXE CE devices manufactured before April 2007 must have some software components upgraded before they can use
the Avalanche Enabler functions described in this reference guide. Contact your LXE representative for details on
upgrading the mobile device baseline.
Note: Important: If the user is NOT using Wavelink Avalanche to manage their mobile device(s), the Enabler should not
be installed on the mobile device(s). Doing so results in unnecessary delays when booting the device.
Briefly . . .
The Avalanche Enabler installation file LXE_ENABLER.CAB is loaded on the WAVACFG by LXE; however, the device is not
configured to launch the Enabler installation file automatically. The installation application must be run manually the first time
Avalanche is used.
Note: Older versions of the Enabler may have a device specific name such as LXE_MX3X_ENABLER.CAB.
After the installation application is manually run, the Enabler will, by default, be an auto-launch application.
This behavior can be modified by accessing the Avalanche Update Settings panel through the Enabler Interface.
The RMU.CE.CAB file is placed on the device during manufacturing in the \System\RMU folder.
During the Enabler installation process, the Enabler checks for the RMU.CE.CAB file in the \System folder.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 9 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Enabler Uninstall Process
l
If present, it assumes the RMU.CE.CAB file is already installed and continues.
l
If the file RMU.CE.CAB file is not present, it looks for the file in the \System\RMU folder.
l
If present, the Enabler copies the file to the \System folder and installs it.
At this point, the OS will automatically install the RMU1 after the WAVACFG reboots.
Enabler Uninstall Process
To remove the LXE Avalanche Enabler from the WAVACFG:
l
Delete the Avalanche folder located in the \System directory.
l
Warm boot the WAVACFG.
The Avalanche folder cannot be deleted while the Enabler is running. See Stop the Enabler Service.
If sharing errors occur while attempting to delete the Avalanche folder, warm boot the WAVACFG, immediately delete the
Avalanche folder, and then perform another warm boot.
Stop the Enabler Service
To stop the Enabler from monitoring for updates from the Mobility Center Console:
1. Open the Enabler Settings Panels by tapping the Enabler icon on the WAVACFG desktop.
2. Select File | Settings.
3. Select the Startup/Shutdown tab.
4. Select the Do not monitor or launch Enabler parameter to prevent automatic monitoring upon startup.
5. Select Stop Monitoring for an immediate shutdown of all Enabler update functionality upon exiting the user interface.
6. Click the OK button to save the changes.
7. Reboot the WAVACFG if necessary.
Update Monitoring Overview
There are three methods by which the Enabler on the WAVACFG can communicate with the Mobile Device Server running on
the host machine.
l
Wired via a serial cable between the Mobile Device Server PC and the WAVACFG.
l
Wired via a USB connection, using ActiveSync, between the Mobile Device Server PC and the WAVACFG.
l
Wirelessly via the WAVACFG 2.4GHz radio and an access point
After installing the Enabler on the WAVACFG the Enabler searches for a Mobile Device Server, first by polling all available
serial ports and then over the wireless network.
The Enabler running on the WAVACFG will attempt to access COM1, COM2, and COM3. “Agent not found” will be reported if
the Mobile Device Server is not located or a serial port is not present or available (COM port settings can be verified using the
LXE scanner applet in the Control Panel on the WAVACFG).
Note: Refer to the WAVACFG reference guide for communication details as there may be differences in capabilities. For
example, LXE recommends serial communication with an MX3X be performed using the serial port on the MX3X endcap
rather than using a docking cradle serial port.
The wireless connection is made using the default wireless [radio] interface on the mobile device therefore the WAVACFG
must be actively communicating with the network for this method to succeed.
1Remote Management Utility
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 10 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Update Monitoring Overview
If a Mobile Device Server is found, the Enabler automatically attempts to apply all wireless and network settings from the
active profile. The Enabler also automatically downloads and processes all available packages.
If the Enabler does not automatically detect the Mobile Device Server, the IP address of the Mobile Device Server can be
entered on the Connect tab of the Enabler setup. Please see Enabler Configuration for details.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 11 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Mobile Device Wireless and Network Settings
Mobile Device Wireless and Network Settings
Once the connection to the Mobile Device Server is established, the WAVACFG Enabler attempts to apply all network and
wireless settings contained in the active profile.
The success of the application of settings is dependent upon the local configuration of control parameters for the Enabler.
These local parameters cannot be overridden from the Avalanche MC Console.
The default Enabler adapter control settings are:
l
Manage network settings – enabled
l
Use Avalanche network profile – enabled
l
Manage wireless settings – disabled for Windows CE devices
To configure the Avalanche Enabler management of the network and wireless settings:
1. Open the Enabler Settings Panels by tapping the Enabler icon on the desktop.
2. Select File | Settings.
3. Select the Adapters tab.
4. Choose settings for the Use Manual Settings parameter.
5. Choose settings for Manage Network Settings, Manage Wireless Settings and Use Avalanche Network Profile.
6. Click the OK button to save the changes.
7. Reboot the device.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 12 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Preparing an LXE Device for Remote Management
Preparing an LXE Device for Remote Management
Two additional utilities are necessary for remote management. These utilities are included on CE mobile devices
manufactured after April 2007.
l
The LXE Remote Management Utility (RMU) must be installed on all LXE mobile devices first – then you can control
mobile device reboot, storage RAM adjustment, real-time updates and Avalanche Enabler properties. If the RMU is not
already installed on the WAVACFG, see Using Wavelink Avalanche to Upgrade System Baseline.
If in doubt, verify RMU.CE.CAB exists in the \System folder. If the RMU.CE.CAB file is present when the Enabler is
installed, the RMU is also installed.
Important: If the OS package includes double-byte Asian fonts, the storage RAM property of the RMU must be higher
than the default value (40MB).
If the amount of storage RAM is too low, the Enabler returns a “Mobile unit out of resources” error.
To determine the minimum value required, inspect the RMU.StorageRAM>=nn parameter in the Criteria field for the OS
package. Generally, this setting should be approximately 40 MB above the amount of RAM in use on the device for a
standard OS and 50MB above the amount of RAM in use for an OS with Asian fonts.
For example, if after installing all the software, the device shows 5MB in use, this setting should be about 45MB for a
standard OS, 55 MB for an Asian font OS.
l
Use the LXE Wireless Configuration Application (WCA) when you want to remotely manage the Cisco client or
Summit client device. This utility is downloaded and installed in addition to the LXE Remote Management Utility. The
WCA is included when the Summit or Cisco radio driver software is updated. The WCA is automatically installed when
the radio driver is updated.
If the LXE Remote Management Utility (RMU) is not present on the WAVACFG, see Using Wavelink Avalanche to Upgrade
System Baseline.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 13 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Using Wavelink Avalanche to Upgrade System Baseline
Using Wavelink Avalanche to Upgrade System Baseline
This procedure assumes the Avalanche Enabler is already installed on the WAVACFG and is already in communication with
the Avalanche MC Console.
Part 1 – Bootstrapping the RMU
1. Install the RMUCEbt package into the Avalanche MC Console. Do NOT include the Reboot option as part of the configuration (i.e. the Reboot button in the “Reboot Options” branch must be unbolded).
2. Enable ONLY the RMUCEbt package in the Avalanche MC Console and update the devices. The RMU is downloaded
and automatically installed.
3. Disable the RMUCEbt package in the Avalanche MC Console.
4. For each device, double-click on the device to open the Client Controls dialog box.
5. Check the Delete Orphaned Packages checkbox and click the Update Now button.
6. After the sync completes, uncheck Delete Orphaned Packages and close the dialog box.
Part 2 – Installing Packages
1. Enable the RMUCE package in the Avalanche MC Console.
2. Enable all remaining packages and send them down. It is important that you include the new OS package in this group
(be sure to include the Enabler). If the radio is to be managed remotely, it is important to include the radio package in
this group so that after the reboot the radio can automatically associate. If the radio package is not sent, the device
loses connection to the network and manual configuration of the radio parameters is required.
3. Set the Reboot setting for the OS package to Auto.
4. After all packages are downloaded (this may take several minutes) the RMU1 is launched. The RMU processes all the
downloaded packages. If the radio package was downloaded, the WCA2 is launched to process the new radio settings.
5. After the RMU finishes installing all the packages, the device is automatically coldbooted (assuming the Reboot setting
was set to Auto in Step 3).
6. After the Device completes the coldboot, the RMU is autoinstalled by the OS and the previously downloaded packages
are restored. Assuming at least one package has registry settings that were restored, and that package was set to
reboot (either auto or prompt), the RMU then performs an automatic warmboot.
7. After the warmboot, the device is configured.
8. If the device will no longer be monitored by Wavelink Avalanche, you may remove the Enabler to eliminate boot up
delays, if desired. Even if the Enabler is removed, the installed packages and their configurations continue to be
restored with every reboot by the RMU.

eXpress Config
Introduction
eXpress Config is installed on a desktop/laptop computer with a Windows XP operating system. It is an accessory product to
the Wavelink Avalanche MC system management application. The desktop/laptop computer running the Wavelink Avalanche
MC system management application is, for the purposes of this document, described as the Avalanche MC Console.
Software Packages distributed to the Mobile Device Servers and Enablers do not include the eXpress Config application.
eXpress Config provides three basic functions:
l
l
l
eXpress Config can be used to create software packages for LXE software. [See Creating a Software Package with
eXpress Config]
eXpress Config can be used to configure the software packages, either when the package is created or after the package has been imported into the Avalanche MC console. [See Configuring a Software Package with eXpress Config]
eXpress Config can be used to generate and print barcodes to be used with the eXpress Scan feature installed on certain LXE devices. The barcodes generated using eXpress Scan are designed for the initial wireless network and Mobile
Device Server configuration on the LXE device. [See Creating Configuration Barcodes with eXpress Config]
See: LXE Supported Devices and Software.
The assumption is made that the user has a basic familiarity with Microsoft Windows terms, basic Windows components and
their use/function. For example, assumption is made that the user is familiar with the operation of Windows Title Bars, Menu
Bars, Navigation Trees, Configuration Panels, and Message Panels. The final assumption is that the user has access to
standard Windows Help vehicles: on-line Help, Windows Help documents, etc. available from Microsoft and on-line help or
documentation available from Wavelink.
Avalanche Software Collections
Software collections are made up of one or more Software Packages. Software Packages are created using eXpress Config.
Software Packages created using eXpress Config include an LXE software module and parameter configuration information.
LXE software modules compatible with eXpress Config include a data definition file (.DDF) which communicates the
configurable parameters for that particular software module to eXpress Config. The DDF file was not included in earlier LXE
Avalanche software packages.
The Wavelink Package Builder can be used to send non-LXE supported software, if desired.
A network administrator interacts with the Avalanche Console to define policies and create software collections that are
distributed through the Avalanche Mobile Device Servers to the Avalanche Enablers running on client devices.
When a Software Package is installed into the Avalanche MC Console, it becomes available for inclusion in a Software
Collection. eXpress Config is launched by clicking the Configure tab, after selecting a Software Package that has been
installed in the Avalanche Console and included in a Software Collection. eXpress Config reads the data definition file which is
included in the software package and presents the configurable parameters for that Software Package to the device
administrator through a graphical user interface.
Once the device administrator has updated the configurable parameters, the new parameter values are included in the
Software Package.
The device administrator also defines policies that are assigned to each Software Collection. These policies determine which
client device receives the software collection.
Note: LXE software modules include operating system modules, an RFTerm module, an AppLock module, a barcode
wedge module or a radio module. Software modules are sometimes also referred to as “G-numbers” or “P-numbers”. The

Configuring a Software Package with eXpress Config
eXpress Config provides a configuration interface for the software provided in each Software Module Package. When one of
these packages is opened in the Avalanche MC Console, it is eXpress Config which is launched. eXpress Config presents a
user interface for providing configuration data for the software module also bundled in that package – and only that software.
For example, if a Package contains the RFTerm module, eXpress Config, when launched from that package, presents only
configuration parameters relevant to RFTerm.
Only LXE software modules that include a Package file (PKG) and Data Definition File (DDF) can be configured with eXpress
Config. Since Data Definition Files are a requirement for this software, that means software modules released prior to the
release of eXpress Config are not configurable using eXpress Config.
When a package is “opened” – that is, eXpress Config is launched – eXpress Config displays all configuration parameters
described in the Data Definition File (and a REG file if included). The first time a package is configured, default values for all
parameters are presented. Changes to the parameters are saved back to the package. Every subsequent time the package is
configured, the last saved configuration data is presented. All parameter changes are saved to the package, but only ‘marked’
data is sent to the remote device. Parameter values modified by the user are automatically marked. The user may change the
‘marked’ status of any parameter or group of parameters. eXpress Config can also be opened from the Avalanche MC Console,
and in this case marked data values are sent to the devices and are saved to the package within the Avalanche MC Console.
Launch eXpress Config through the Avalanche MC Console by right clicking on the software module package name and select
Configure Package on the right click menu. Then select eXpress Config from the Configure Package menu.
There may be two eXpress Config entries, depending on the currently selected software package.
l
l
eXpress Config – Config is present for all software packages and is the option covered in this section.
Additionally, eXpress Config – Barcodes is present for some Summit radio software packages. Please see Creating
Configuration Barcodes with eXpress Config for details on this process.
Menu Bar
Alt key shortcuts are available for the Menu Bar. For example, pressing the <Alt><F> key combination will cause the ‘File’
menu bar drop-down to be displayed. When a drop-down menu is displayed, pressing the key corresponding to the underlined
letter in any menu item causes that menu item to be invoked.
The Menu Bar contains two menu items: File and Edit.

This state indicates that all parameters in the tree branch are selected for inclusion in
the software package.
Unchecked
(Blank) This state indicates that none of the parameters in the tree branch are selected
for inclusion in the software package.
Mixed
(Dimmed checkmark) This state indicates that some parameters in the tree branch are
selected for inclusion in the software package and some parameters are not included.
Left click a leaf in the expanded branch to display the parameters associated with the leaf to be displayed in the Configuration
panel.
Right click a label or associated check box to display a Selection panel. The selection panel contains three choices:
Select All

included in the software package.
Reset To
Defaults
Causes default values to be applied to all parameters in that branch and sub-branches.
Default parameters will be included in the software package.
Each check box transition is propagated both upward and downward through the navigation tree, and to the individual
parameters in the configuration panel.
Root Nodes
Reboot Options
Indicates whether the client device is to be rebooted when the new package is installed. Rebooting the client after installing the
package is the surest way to cause new parameters and software to be applied immediately. However, rebooting the device
may disrupt any end-user operations in progress.
Default Prompt
Auto - Causes the device to automatically reboot (user is not prompted).
Options Prompt - Causes the Enabler to display a prompt asking if the device is to be rebooted
immediately, or if the reboot should be delayed. ‘Prompt’ is the default value.
If no reboot is desired, do not include the reboot options parameter in the package.
Cisco Configuration Changes
The device must be rebooted when the Cisco configuration is added or modified. Therefore, the Reboot option for the Cisco
DDF is disabled (a reboot always occurs).
Data File Options
The element label is derived from the specific application configuration menu.
There is always a root node named after the data file (without the file extension), for example ‘rfterm’. Packages that require a
reboot for configuration changes to become effective include a Reboot Options node at the root level (see above).
The branches or leaves on the navigation tree lead to user-configurable parameters. See Configuration Panel for instruction.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 47 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
Configuration Panel
Configuration Panel
The Configuration Panel is designed to allow the device administrator to view, add, edit and delete device-specific or
application-specific configuration data.
Parameters and elements displayed in the Configuration Panel are the same as those displayed on the mobile device. Only
parameters and elements with an editable attribute set to True are available for edit. If a parameter or element is dimmed, it
cannot be edited. There are visual and navigation modifications due to differences between the application environment
(usually Windows CE) and the Configuration Panel environment (assumed to be Windows XP), and because of differences in
navigation between the target application and the configuration utility.

Creating Configuration Barcodes with eXpress Config
Creating Configuration Barcodes with eXpress Config
When a software package contains Summit radio software, eXpress Config can be used to create barcodes to configure the
basic parameters that allow an LXE device to connect with the wireless network and the Mobile Device Server. The
configuration screens appear similar to those for any other LXE software package, as described in the previous section, but
with some notable differences:
l
l
l
l
The Configure Barcodes… button is only present when the software package is for Summit radio software. The Configure Barcodes… button is not present for Summit software revisions released prior to the eXpress Scan feature.
This option only provides configuration data. No software is downloaded to the LXE device. However, once the configuration barcodes are used to configure the LXE device to contact the wireless network and Mobile Device Server,
software upgrades can then be performed.
When Configure Barcodes… is selected, the parameters available for configuration differ from the parameters available when Configure Package… is selected.
The Menu bar includes a Barcode | Print option.
Launch eXpress Config through the Avalanche MC Console by right clicking on the software module package name and
select Configure Package on the right click menu. Then select eXpress Config – Barcodes from the Configure Package
menu.
If eXpress Config – Barcodes is not present, one or more of the following applies:
l
The software package is not a Summit radio package.
l
The Summit radio package does not meet the minimum revision requirements.
l
eXpress Config does not meet the minimum revision requirements.
Note: Contact your LXE representative for upgrade availability and minimum revision requirements.
There may be two eXpress Config entries, depending on the currently selected software package.
l
l
eXpress Config – Barcodes is present for some Summit radio software packages and is the option covered in this section.
eXpress Config – Config is present for all software packages and is the option covered in the section, Configuring a
Software Package with eXpress Config.
It is not necessary to save the configuration parameters before printing the barcodes.
If Save is selected, the saved parameters become part of the software package and are sent if the software package is
deployed in the Avalanche MC Console. If Save is not selected, the barcodes can be printed, but the software package, if
deployed, does not contain the configuration data included in the barcodes.

LXE Skins
LXE Skins
The first step in the configuration process is to download the applicable skin for the managed LXE device. If more than one
type of device is managed, download a skin for each type of device. Once the skins are downloaded, the appropriate skin for
the managed device is automatically selected.
To download the skin, locate the Remote Control software package. Select the package and click the Configure button.
Select KeyMap Editor from the pulldown list and click OK.
From the KeyMap editor, select Skin | Download From Web.
When the Skins Download box appears, click Connect or OK to connect to the skin download center.
A list of skins available for download is displayed. When selecting a skin, it is necessary to make sure both the device type
and keypad style match your device. For example, the LXE MX7 is available with a 32-key keypad and a 55-key keypad. Be
sure to select the skin that matches the device’s keypad configuration.
Select the desired skin and click OK.
Only one skin can be downloaded at a time. If multiple skins for different LXE devices are required, download the first skin then
repeat for the additional skins.
When the download is complete, the new skin is displayed in the keymap editor.
When finished, exit the keymap editor.

Remote Control Keypad Limitations
The following limitations apply to all LXE managed devices. Please see the device specific limitation sections that follow.
l
The skin provides a visual indication of the keypress.
l
Remote Control sends an F24 keypress to the remote device every few seconds to keep the device awake.
All Devices
The following limitations apply to all LXE computers.
1. The following controls are not supported:
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 64 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
HX2 Legacy
l
Volume controls. The Control Panel Volume & Sounds can be used by the remote operator to control the volume.
l
Backlight controls.
l
Contrast controls.
l
Scan keys.
l
Power button.
l
Suspend/Resume controls.
Blue Diamond and any other programmable keys must be configured in the skin by the local administrator to match
whatever the setting for that key is on the device. Refer to the Keymap Editor section of the Wavelink Remote Control
2.
User’s Guide for details. Likewise if any custom keymapping is done on the LXE device using the KeyPad utility, this
custom mapping must be configured in the skin as well for the skin to generate the remapped keypress.
3.
The remote console CapsLock state is entered by sending a “Capital” keystroke to the mobile device. This state is
indicated on the device by a blue “A” in the task bar. There is no separate CapsLock state in the skin.
Generally Alt, Ctrl, and Shift can be combined in any order on both the device and the remote console. However, on the
remote console, the states shown in the status bars will be “Alt-Ctrl”, “Alt-Shift”, “Ctrl-Shift”, and “Alt-Ctrl-Shift”,
4.
regardless of the actual order in which the modifier keys were pressed. That is, “Alt-Ctrl” and “Ctrl-Alt” achieve the same
result on the device.
The skin returns to the Normal state after a sequence of keypresses unless the state has been defined as sticky. If the
state is sticky, the skin does not return to Normal mode after the functional keypress. If the skin is in a sticky state, it is
5. necessary to press the modifier keys that created the sticky state to undo the sticky state.
For example, if the Ctrl-Shift state is sticky, press <Ctrl> + <Shift> to cancel the sticky state.
HX2 Legacy
1. The default mode is for the numeric keys to produce numeric characters. This mode is labeled “Normal” in the skin.
2. When the keyboard is in Alpha mode, the remote keypad only provides the alpha values of the keypress. For example,
on the physical HX2 keypad, when Alpha mode is enabled, pressing the 2 key multiple times cycles from A to B to C to
2. On the remote keypad, only A B and C are supported. To generate a numeric keypress, return to “Normal” mode.
3. The device and the skin do not operate identically with respect to toggling between the Numeric, Alpha Lower, and
Alpha Upper state. The table below shows the key presses necessary to transition from one state to the other on the
HX2.
Physical Keypad
The table below shows how the physical HX2 keypad cycles between states (numeric, alpha lower and alpha upper).
Note: Note 1 - To switch from Alpha Upper to Numeric, you must switch from Alpha Upper to Alpha Lower (Orange key)
then from Alpha Lower to Numeric (Orange key).

The skin has only the Numeric and Alpha states. The Alpha state can switch between upper and lower modes by sending the
Capital keystroke as described below. The first press of the Orange key transitions the HX2 from Numeric to Alpha. Once in
Alpha mode, pressing the Orange key sends the Capital keystroke which switches the device’s keyboard between lower case
and upper case. Clicking <Blue> <Orange> the Alpha state returns the keypad to Numeric.
Note: Note 2 - To switch from Numeric to Alpha Upper, you must switch from Numeric to Alpha Lower (<Orange> key)
then from Alpha Lower to Alpha Upper (<Orange> key).

The default mode for the numeric keys is to produce numeric characters, and this mode is labeled “Normal” in the skin.
HX2-Triple Tap
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 66 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
HX3
1. The default mode for the numeric keys is to produce numeric characters, and this mode is labeled “Normal” in the skin.
2. On the physical device, pressing the Blue key puts the device in Alpha mode so multiple clicks of the numeric keys generate the alpha characters. In the skin, the Blue key is a sticky key because Remote Control would otherwise revert to
Numeric after the first <Blue> + <numeric key> keypress.
HX3
The Blue button is not supported in the remote console because its function is to control volume, which is not directly
supported by remote control. Instead the control panel applet must be used to remotely change volume.
MX7-55
On the physical keypad, the following key combinations generate no output:
<Shift> + <Tab >
<Shift> + <Enter>
1. <Shift> + <Del>
<Shift> + <Spc>
<Shift> + <1>
In the skin, the second keypress is ignored and stays in the Shift state.
The MX7-55 is the default skin for an MX7. A user must manually select the MX7-32 skin for an MX7 with a 32-key
2. keypad.
Failure to select the proper skin may cause unintended results.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 67 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
MX7-32
MX7-32
The MX7-55 is the default skin for an MX7. A user must manually select the MX7-32 skin for an MX7 with a 32-key
1. keypad.
Failure to select the proper skin may cause unintended results.
2.
When in Alpha mode, <Blue> + <Tab> sends the CapsLock keystroke. On the physical keypad, the MX7 is put into
CapsLock mode with the state displayed in the task bar. The MX7 remains in Alpha mode.
However, on the remote console the state drops back to NumLock because Remote Control returns a device to the
default state, not the previous state, after a modifier key is used.
3.
Similarly, in Alpha mode using the Blue or Orange modifier keys causes the remote console to drop back to NumLock (the
default state) whereas on the physical keyboard the MX7 would remain in the Alpha state.
4.
On the physical keypad, <Shift> + <Orange> + <char> locks the keyboard. On remote control, <Shift> + <Blue> or
<Orange> is not allowed.
MX8
1.
In the Alpha mode in the remote control, all Alt/Ctrl/Shift states are sticky in order to allow the multi-click of the number
keys. The states are not actually stick on the device.
2. The default state is Numeric.
3. <Alt> + <Ctrl> + <Del> does not reboot the device. Instead it brings up the Task Manager.
4. <Alt / Ctrl / Shift> + <Blue / Orange> is a valid state. <Blue / Orange> + <Alt / Ctrl / Shift> is not.
5.
On the physical keypad, <Ctrl> + <Shift> does not equal <Shift> + <Ctrl>. The former behaves as one would expect,
while the other resolves to no modifier at all.
VX6
1.
The VX6 does not support a NumLock off state. Therefore the <2nd> + <Shift> + <F10> keypress has no effect either on
the physical keypad or the remote console.
2.
On the physical keyboard, <2nd> + <Shift> + <F8> or <F9> incorrectly creates a Shift state. The remote console
correctly creates Right-Alt and Right-Ctrl states respectively.
3.
Warning: <2nd> + <Alt> + <Ctrl> + < . > is Control-Alt-Delete. This sequence reboots the computer, causing the network
connection to be at least temporarily broken.
E-SW-WAVACFGRG-G [ 68 ] WAVACFG Reference Guide
VX7 60-key Standard Keypad
VX7 60-key Standard Keypad
1.
Normal state is NumLock. NumOff state is NumLock Off. Toggle between Normal and NumLock with <2nd> + <Shift> +
<F10>. The alpha and function keys behavior is unchanged.
2.
The NumLock state is not visible from the VX7 screen. The NumLock state in the remote console is independent of the
device state, so that the actual keyboard state does not interfere with the commands sent from the remote console.
3.
In non-NumLock state, using a modifier key returns the remote console to NumLock state, while on the device it would
stay in non-NumLock state.
On the device, once a modifier key is clicked it cannot be “unclicked” by clicking it again. The modifier state will not clear
4. until a functional key is pressed. The remote control skin follows this behavior. The exception is the 2nd key, which can be
toggled on and off. However, the 2nd key must be clicked first, and not after any other modifier key (except for Alt).
5.
Warning: <2nd> + <Alt> + <Ctrl> + < . > is Control-Alt-Delete. This sequence reboots the computer, causing the network
connection to be at least temporarily broken.
6.
In NumLock mode, <2nd> + <Alt> state is different from <Alt> + <2nd>. The former is equivalent to <2nd> while the latter
is a unique state. In NumLock Off mode, there is no <Alt> + <2nd> and that key sequence results in the <2nd> state.
VX7 95-key Keyboard
The following are not supported:
1.
l
Windows Key
l
Menu Key
l
Mouse
l
Fn key
2.
Normal state is NumLock. NumOff state is NumLock Off. The alpha and function keys behavior is independent of the
NumLock state.
3.
The NumLock state is not visible from the VX7 screen. The NumLock state in the remote console is independent of the
device state, so that the actual keyboard state does not interfere with the commands sent from the remote console.
4.
In non-NumLock state, using a modifier key returns the remote console to NumLock state, while on the device it would
stay in non-NumLock state.
On the device, the modifier keys are not sticky, i.e. the user must hold them down until a functional key is hit. At the
5. remote console, the modifier keys are necessarily sticky. Clicking on a modifier key and then clicking it again will return
the device to its previous state, equivalent to releasing the key on the actual device.
6.
To switch between NumLock and NumLock-Off modes, the NumLock button must be clicked first. Once another modifier
key has been pressed, it is not possible to switch between NumLock modes.
7.
Warning: <2nd> + <Alt> + <Ctrl> + < . > is Control-Alt-Delete. This sequence reboots the computer, causing the network
connection to be at least temporarily broken.
