Windows Mobile Emulator images and Exchange 2007


Say you want to test drive Exchange Server 2007 SP1 security policies on an emulator image?

You won’t be able to do it.

When preparing my Lab on Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Security policies for Windows Mobile 6.1 devices, I got discovered that the emulators come with the EAS feature disabled.

It took me a while to find out what was causing the failure to sync between the XP VM with Visual Studio 2008 with the Windows Mobile 6.1.4 emulator images and the  Exchange Server 2007 SP1 VM I had setup on my laptop.

I then got my hands dirty on the registry of the emulator, only to realize that Exchange Activesync was disabled by default on all emulator images :(

So if you ever need to test security policies against the emulator, please edit the following values using PHM regedit:


"0000100d"=dword:64 (decimal)

"0000100e"=dword:64 (decimal)

"00001017"=dword:180 (decimal)

"0000101c"=dword:1 (decimal)

"00001021"=dword:3136 (decimal)

"00001024"=dword:0 (decimal)

"0000102d"=dword:4096 (decimal)

"0000102e"=dword:4096 (decimal)

Now you’re setup to test the Exchange 2007 SP1 security policies on the emulator :)

  1. We used Kerio Mail Server in place of Exchange and we haven’t had a problem since, 3 Nokia’s, 2 Smartphones and 2 I-phones and of course VMs
