Windows Mobile Device Center not working? Mobile Connect app is the file transfer fix

Mobile Connect for Windows Mobile Device CenterAnother Windows 10 update for Windows Mobile Device Center users means more bugs, quirks, and breakdowns.

Since Microsoft abandoned its Windows Mobile operating system in 2010 – after a decade-long run – Windows Mobile Device Center, the company’s device management and data synchronization software, stopped fully functioning. Windows Mobile users are now unable to make their devices talk to Windows 10 products. The software has stopped working.

Rest easily, though, Juniper Systems developed an affordable long-term fix. It’s called Mobile Connect and it’s a permanent solution for Windows Mobile users who still have work to do and whose devices still have data to send. The software facilitates USB file transfers from a Windows Mobile device to a Windows 10 PC without Windows Mobile Device Center.

“We developed Mobile Connect to answer a growing customer need,” said Jeff Delatore, a product manager at Juniper Systems. “This permanent fix eliminates the frustration of bugs and breaks that can occur when an operating system goes unsupported.”

Juniper Systems’ lineup of rugged mobile computers and data collectors live long lives. Although Microsoft ceased to support Windows Mobile, Juniper Systems continued to support its devices. The company, a 25-year-old data collection industry veteran, makes customer service its focus.

Once file transfer issues began to hound Windows Mobile users, software engineers at Juniper Systems quickly developed patches that served as temporary workarounds. As Windows Mobile Device Center became more broken, Juniper Systems invested resources to develop a permanent solution.

“When we saw this problem, we tried to respond as quickly as we could with a solution that keeps our customers up and running,” Delatore said.

  1. It is very nice for you to continue support to the OS after Microsoft has walked away!



  2. I was interested in the trial version of Mobile Connect until I found out that the software has to be installed on my mobile device. How is this possible when I am unable to sync my mobile device with my PC?
