Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 for Windows Vista

You can now find the latest release of WMDC version 6.1 available.

The key updates delivered in this release include:

  • IRM activation
  • HTML mail
  • Certificate enrollment
  • File synchronization on all WM 6 devices (Yes, even Smartphone!)
  • Windows Embedded CE 6.0 support
  • Automatic device authentication
  • Product registration
  • Silent-mode install for corporate deployment
    And more!

But from our basic testing it looks like it solves the previous versions problem which is connecting Vista to a Windows Embedded CE device via it's Activesync module. Even though the MS official descriptions only indicate WinCE 6.0 I have had it tested with a WinCE 4.2 device (seen here). So I see no reason why it's not going to work with 4.0, 4.2 & 5.0 etc.

what about RAPI which used to run over ActiveSync. Is this functionality still running with WMDC?
