I will shortly need the capability to transfer files from my izibasic program to my PC. Can anyone give me some insight how to do this? I am thinking its probably that the Hot Sync manager just uses a dll to do that. I can make calls to it using C++ or something.

Hello Watts,

I personally never got into the development of conduits and I use some workaround to exchange data between the PC and the Palm.

After a HotSync is performed, I retrieve the target database in the Backup folder of HotSync. I then parse it with some PC home made software (A MS Access script indeed) and inject the data in a MS Access database for further treatment.
I do the same thing the other way and build a new Palm database which will be parsed by my iziBasic program to reinject new or modified records in the main database.

This way of doing is cottage industry... and using a conduit would be much smarter!

Cheers,
aldweb

Indeed, it did change over time. It used to be in "C:PalmBackup[User ID]" in standard if I remember well, now it should be in "C:Program FilesPalmBackup[User ID]" or something like that, but the installation procedure lets you install it where you want. This path should be set somewhere in the registry or in an .ini file. I personally check the exact path each time and put it in a variable.

Cheers,
