Demo Tip: Microsoft CRM Mobile Demo - Displaying PDA Screen on Computer Screen

So I have gotten a couple of questions this week alone about how to display a Windows Mobile Device’s screen on your laptop’s screen for projecting to a group of people. There are two ways to do it. One is free and one costs money. J

The free option is:

Remote Display Control for Pocket PC

With the Remote Display Control application, you can display actions on a Pocket PC, including user input, remotely on the display of a desktop or laptop personal computer. This is a great tool for demonstrating the power of the Pocket PC to a large audience. It also allows developers to test their applications for the Pocket PC on a larger screen.

Remote Display Control uses TCP/IP, and it can work with ActiveSync connections via Ethernet or dial-up.
