I am using Dell mobile connect 3.3 and it says it will end of life on 12/31/2021. There’s a newer one from the Microsoft Store I guess. Is there any advance info on whether this new post 3.3 one will block non-Dell hardware even more effectively, i.e., I did the registry changes and am OK right now, but what is the new one doing?

Hi, thanks for the post.
However, the file that you provided does not work with the latest version form AppStore. When clicking on your link, iTunes opens with message that the app is not available. The latest version from the AppStore says ver 4.10, not sure if that matters.
Hope you will have some fix for us!

Thank you very much for your help Mr. Rahul.

Whenever dell mobile connect stops running on my pc, I download version 2.0 then update it back to version 3.0.

Also, to avoid the bluetooth connection issues when going out of range with my cell phone, I just put my pc to sleep before I go out of range.

Thank you very much! I just transitioned from my Macbook to HP laptop but missed some aspects of having MacOS which includes texting. Everything managed to download fine and does it job thanks to your guide!

I have a few questions though, is there any way for me to view or send images sent via text messages? Or take calls on the laptop, like receiving audio from call through the laptop?

Thanks again!

I finally found a solution to the 3.2 problem!
Open a terminal with administrator and entering the following two commands.

REG ADD “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Store” /v OEMID /f /t REG_SZ /d DELL

REG ADD “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Store” /v StoreContentModifier /f /t REG_SZ /d “DELL_XPS”

This returned operations to normal without even requiring a reboot!

Hey Rahul,
recently DELL updated the app and now blocks all hardware which is not DELL. The downgrade with your 3.0 version works, but as soon as you check for any other updates in the Microsoft store (with automatic updates disabled) DMC will update without asking for permission. And then its blocked again. But i need to do Updates for other Apps from the Microsoft Store. I couldn’t find any Info how to just block a specific app from updating in the Store. What do you suggest?

its happening to Dell machines too. I have a 4 month old Dell Precision 5750 and the same thing is happening. I was able to backrev back to 3.0.9346.0 and it worked.

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 installed (with all the Dell drivers)- wonder if that’s what’s doing it. the question is – what else are they checking for in the OS? just updated my BIOS so thats not it.

Was on chat with Dell support yesterday and they were useless.

Have had this working many months. Today the app would not launch. App was set to auto update and was on version 3.2.9771.0. I downloaded version 3 above (ver 3.0.9346.0) and it started launching again.

Thank you Rahul Kumar Singh.

I made it work with my iphone, except mouse control doesn’t work on my phone. Mirroring works, but everytime i try to move the mouse it jumps back to the lower right corner of the screen. I can scroll with the wheel and click on exactly the point the cursor points towards at the lower corner.

Is there anything I am missing or I can do ? Maybe you already know this issue ๐Ÿ™‚

You can update the drivers download link from 1.x to latest 3.x version. The link is almost the same but the Driver ID is 0gdtn. (I can’t paste the full link as paste seems to be disabled here.)

I paired bluetooth via Windows settings. Originally I had my PC connected via LAN (its the same network). I changed the PC to use the same Wifi as the iPhone but it still fails to connect.

I can ping the phone from the PC. I am using a generic bluetooth radio, do only certain bluetooth devices work?

Hello Rahul๏ผ

Fowllowing your clear guidance I’ve finised all the mentioned steps, with out any trouble.

When connection starts, I could see the phone notice, the messages and phone files…But issue happens when I try to use “Mirroring” function, reason is” Falied to load the drives”.

Tips on PC software let me try to restart my PC, reboot Bluetooth or re-install the drives, which I’ve already tried for many times…
I’ve even upgraded my PC system, the Appx application and the drives to the lastest version …but still no luck ..lOl…

As “Mirroring” is so important for me, definitely I need your kindly help…

BR,
Tristan

It’s 3.0.9268(64bit). So does it mean I’ll not be able to use Mirroring until 9346 launched? My phone runs Android system.

Oh yeah me again…
I’ve checked app on PC, it’s v9346 already before I come here. App on my phone is v9268. Does this couple work well?

For now the Mirroring problem is till there, PC app tips as mentioned above.
Same situation happends when I tried with my another Android phone.
Any suggestion for me to have a last try?

Would you provide the latest appx version, 3.0.9346? It is needed along with the newest iOS mobile app to support mirroring correctly. Thank you.

Douglas

I have no way of confirming; I have no access to the appx file, which is why I’m making my request to you here.

The update to the iOS mobile app in the App Store states that we need the newer version 3.0.9346 of the desktop app to work. The new version fixes mirroring support for iOS 13.4+.

Thanks.

Hi Rahul
Thanks a lot , I got the app working on my Surface Pro 6 and connected my iPhone 11 Pro Max successfully.
I have the Dell Mobile connect 3.0 App version and Dell Mobile connect Drivers 1.2.5639 installed on my Surface Pro 6 tablet.
I am able to make calls , send messages without any issues and I also get all notifications on my tablet.
However Files and Mirroring option does not work, Mobile connect app throws the following error
‘Please make sure your PC and phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.’
Both my tablet and phone are on the same Wi-Fi network.

I also tried downloading and installing Mobile connect drivers for Dell XPS 9360 laptop, without any luck.

Any suggestions on how to get the 2 options working ?

Many Thanks in advance.

Hi Rahul
I followed your instructions and reinstalled the latest version of the app and driver, still no luck on the Files and Mirroring option.
Not sure what else can be done from troubleshooting front.
I am happy with the notifications option working as it saves me time and I check my phone only when I get valid alerts.

Guess I will have to wait for the next update of the software.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Rahul! Kudos! Thanks a lot! been looking for this all over the internet.
Got it up and running on my Dell Optiplex Micro.

However, for my company office, i cannot take any downloaded files and i can only install it through the local office PC’s and network. I need to install it on multiple PC’s for users. Is there anyway you can email me instructions to Extract the appx on a Dell Laptop or PC (2018+). There are a few out there.

Tried to install drivers (3 different versions) but keeps getting error “A newer version of this application is already installed”

So ignored that and just kept moving forward.

1. Turned on Bluetooth on both devices.
2. Installed Dell Mobile Connect on Phone and got Code.
3. Then input the code into Dell Mobil Connect on PC and got PIN.
4. Confirm pairing on Phone but thats where Im stuck. The devices never connect.

I get an error “Dell Mobile Connect was unable to connect to your phone”

Any idea what the issue is?
