View Full Version : Running my files on MS emulator?

11-01-2006, 12:51 AM
Hi there,

I've installed the Microsoft standalone emulator following the instructions on this thread:


Now I wonder... how do I run my own exe files on the virtual device? One poster says a folder share is the way to go but I'm totally lost here :( I think the virtual device needs a "Open File" dialog folder. ;)

Thanks for any advice,

I dont have my laptop with me (it died last night) but I do remember that the emulator had a share folder option. Once you share the folder using the emulator menu, that folder appears on the virtual device as a "storage card." On the virtual device, click on Start and look for File explorer or file manager and then look at the Storage Card, the contents of the storage card will be the same as the shared folder.

Hope this helps.
