I've seen a fair few references to the same problem I'm having, without finding any sign of a solution anywhere.

I'm trying to develop a network client program for Windows Mobile 5, intending it to run over WiFi or GPRS. Unfortunately, when connected to the PC for debugging (in Visual Studio 2005), the network connections become disabled, and the device uses the connection on the PC (I assume). Unfortunately, my development PC does not have a network connection, so it always just fails to get a connection to any servers. Is there any way around this

Thanks for any help, and apologies if this has been solved before and I just failed to find the answer...

Hi Martin,

I am confused about your decription, you want to debug a mobile network application without a network on the development PC.

First , If device has wifi or GPRS , you can debug.

Second , But wifi or GPRS disabled, also PC can't have a network. you may have service to the mobile on your PC. otherwise, I am afraid you can't debug.

Best regards,

Hello Martin,

If i am correct, an Activesync connection will disable all other wireless connections from the device. You can disable this feature on the desktop from the ActiveSync connection settings dialog.

Hope this helps.

This is exactly what is happening. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to change the behaviour in ActiveSync. I've seen some (well, one) reference to this being a registry setting, but I can't seem to find that either.
