This is in regards to connecting your data collector to Windows Mobile Device Center to install SurvCE

Step #1) You can click the link below to download and install the Windows Vista 64bit version of Windows Mobile Device Center on your Windows 10 Machine to connect to your data collector using the USB cable:
Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1


Step #2) If Windows Mobile Device Center won't open on your Windows 10 computer after it has been successfully installed you can click the link below and follow the instructions to apply a patch to your computer:
Windows Mobile Device Center patch for Windows 10


Step #3) If you are still having issues connecting by USB cable you can try the steps below:

1) Unplug the USB cable from the bottom of the data collector

2) On your data collector = tap Start / Settings then tap the "Connections" folder (or tap the "Connections" tab at the bottom) and tap "USB to PC"

3) Uncheck the box next to "Enable Advanced Network Functionality" then tap OK in the bottom right

4) Hold the power button for a few seconds and release it when you see the Pop-up menu.  Tap "Power Off" from the menu and tap OK to the warning.

5) After the screen goes blank for a few seconds begin holding the POWER button and release it when you see the Keyboard or Screen light up.

6) Once it has returned to the normal Windows Mobile start screen = reconnect the USB cable to see if it connects up to Windows Mobile Device Center properly now.



Step #4) If none of the steps above allow a successful connection with Windows Mobile Device Center you can try using the steps below for an Alternate Install method using a USB thumb drive or SD card.
