Re: Windows Phone Device Manager for Windows Phone 7
  • You can initiate connection from both PC and device (tap PC Synchronization in TouchXperience to etablish connection from device). You can connect via USB or Wi-Fi, but the first time you have to connect via USB so WP Device Manager can deploy TouchXperience and your device can get your PC IP address.
  • In the current version you can't manually set the PC or phone IP address to connect, or change default ports.
  • Make sure port 8007 is not blocked by firewall on PC and port 8107 is reachable on device.
  • When WP Device Manager initiate a connection and can't connect to the phone, in case you are connected via USB it will launch TouchXperience, in other cases it will send a push notification to your phone asking you to manually launch TouchXperience
  • Some tasks requires your phone screen to be unlocked
  • It is not necessary to have Zune runing in order to use WP Device Manager.
  • If WP Device Manager does not start at all, make sure you installed all the requirements and try to reinstall full .NET Framework 4.0 and developer tools.
  • If you are not able to connect or if some features are not properly working, go to Settings in WP Device Manager, click Restore default settings and eventually restart your PC.
  • If you get a message "TouchXperience version or later is required" it means Device Manager is not able to communicate with TouchXperience, to solve the problem, go to Settings in WP Device Manager, click Restore default settings and restart your PC. Try to temporarly disable your anti-virus or firewall programs to see if that's the problem.
  • If you have connection problems, try the following may help: unplug/replug your phone, close or start Zune, restart WP Device Manager, make sure your device is detected by Zune, in worst case restart your PC.
  • WP Device Manager or some components of it may be considered as potential threat by anti-virus or firewall programs, this is a false alarm, you may need to add exceptions to your anti-virus or firewall may prevent WP Device Manager from working correctly.
  • WP Device Manger is automatically disconnected when you quit TouchXperience (for example when you launch an app or return to Start screen). This is not a bug, this is because TouchXperience is stopped due to the lack of native multitasking in WP7. To workaround you can enable multitasking in TouchXperience settings.
  • Tap on a menu title in TouchXperience and the main menu will show up
  • If you want to take screenshots of an other application on the phone you need to enable multitasking in TouchXperience settings
  • You can only access \Windows and \My Documents on non-HTC devices and some folders may appears empty. This is because only HTC devices have full file system access at the moment.
  • Applications installed with other tools than WP Device Manager are not recognized (they are identified by their id) on non-HTC device, for the same reasons than above. To solve the problem you can simply browse your original xap files, application info will be automatically cached and diplayed in the app manager.
  • Some application versions are incorrect. This is due to the fact that some developers does not update their application manifest with correct version number when they release new versions. To fix the problem you can check for app updates and click on Dismiss All assuming all your applicatons have been updated to their latest version.
  • You can't copy most of DLL and EXE in \Windows directory, this is simply because these are not files but modules.
  • You can check TouchXperience version in Settings or in WP Device Manager application list.
  • You should have a folder with device name in My Documents on your PC, place here the files you want to sync with the phone.
  • You can send toast notifications from any program on your PC using command line C:\Windows\WPDeviceManager\WPDeviceManager.exe /SendToast "message".
  • In order to use WP Device Manager from Windows Device Stage, you must have Windows 7 and driver signature verification disabled, unfortunately this is because Windows 7 recognize only digitally signed drivers.
