  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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?

    • Hello Danny,

      I suggest you turn off auto-update. Currently, this is only one way to block auto-update but this setting applies to every single windows store app.

      Here is how to turn off auto updates:

    • Open the Windows Store app.
    • Click on three dots and then go to Settings.
    • Under โ€œApp updatesโ€ disable the toggle under โ€œUpdate apps automatically.
    • Reply
    • 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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™‚

  6. 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.)

  7. I followed the guide and have the latest DMC and latest 3.0.9346 windows store app. Bluetooth is on on my PC and my iphone.

    When trying to pair with iphone i get the error ” Could not automatically detect your phone” If i choose “select device manually” it does not appear

    • Hi Jesse,

      I think this is your device problem ๐Ÿ™

      I prefer you to first pair Bluetooth from setting and when it connects properly then open dell mobile connect and try connecting.

      If this didn’t work then connect the same wifi in iPhone and laptop and then try.

      I hope this works ๐Ÿ™‚

      • 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?

        • Maybe Generic Bluetooth Radio is disturbing.

          I think this is a common connectivity issue try asking on dell mobile connect community.

          Or I have one more suggestion remove your device from Bluetooth setting and then try to connect directly from DMC.

          Check this official guide for IOS phones

      • Hi Rahul,

        I followed the guide and have the Dell mobile connect 3.0 drivers installed allong with version 3.0.9346.

        I have the app opened on my iphone, on same wifi network, bluetooth on. After entering the 7 digit code shown on my iphone, on the Dell Windows app , it errors with “COULD NOT AUTOMATICALLY DETECT YOUR PHONE” if i click select device manually, no phone is found.

        Can you assist?

  8. 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…


  9. but can’t work dmc.exe error๏ผŒand drive๏ผŒmy computer is new,I thine my computer don’need drive,but i can’t find my computer drive,lenovo 340-c.

  10. 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.

  11. 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 did try resetting Wifi settings on my laptop and phone and restarting my Router as well. Still no luck.
        Thanks for your suggestions , I will keep visiting your blog to check if there are any app and driver updates that can solve the issue.

        • Thanks For visiting this site ๐Ÿ™‚

          Don’t worry this is due to Bug. It’s fixed on v3.0.9346.

          At this time I can’t upload this version on my server, I try to provide till this week (You can try downloading from store server. This link is valid only for 1 successful download)

          Let me know if you want an app that is available in-store and you can’t download ๐Ÿ™‚

          In this site, I try to provide more helpful articles for Windows 10 users.

          • Thanks a lot Rahul.
            I will wait for the new version of the app to be uploaded on your server.
            I am unable to download the store server link that you provided.
            Thanks for all your help.
            Stay Safe.

          • Hi,

            Finally, I uploaded V 3.0.9346 on the server.

            Click here to download (1 IP Allowed only 5 downloads so I prefer not to close a tab while downloading)

          • Hi Rahul
            Thanks a lot , I did download and install the new version , but still Files and mirroring do not work.

          • I don’t know why you can’t mirror files, But in my end, everything is working fine.

            When you install the new version of dell mobile connect it says download required dell mobile connect driver click on it to install.

            If you can’t see any banner that says download dell mobile connect driver then first uninstall dell mobile connect driver and then open dell mobile connect app and reinstall the latest driver.

            I hope this will work ๐Ÿ™‚

          • 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.

          • No need to wait for the next update, It’s already fixed.

            Please tell me what is the error? and Windows version + Laptop Name

            I will check why this is happening? If possible then I will try to fix it for you.

          • Hi Rahul

            Could not reply to the last message in the thread , you had requested for the Laptop details & OS version

            Laptop : Microsoft Surface Pro 6
            OS : Windows 10 Home Version 1909
            Dell Mobile connect Version 3.0.9346

            Error Message : Please make sure the PC and mobile are connected to the same Wifi network.

  12. 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.

    • Hi,

      Great to know it’s working on your laptop ๐Ÿ™‚

      You can try this by downloading the file on pen drive and then open it on your laptop, If not work then download in your phone and then send via email to your laptop.

      I am not sure it works or not ๐Ÿ™


  13. thanks for the information Rahul,
    I do have a question for you, I follow your instructions but I am not able to connect my Iphone X to my HP Zbook X2. After connecting my phone (Bluetooth), the Dell Mobile Connect App get stuck trying to connect to the phone.

    Any ideas ?, Thanks

    • I don’t have a perfect idea about this problem but I think this happens if your laptop has less then 8GB RAM and I prefer you to install latest version of dell mobile connect if not work then check old version also.

  14. I had an issue connecting with the Desktop app but my name on my phone was full of emoji and symbols, changing it to text resolved that issue if anyone else was running into this problem.

    Thanks Rahul for uploading 3.0, i’m still having issues with mirroring my mouse on the the screen broadcast. It always default on the top left making it difficult to click on anything on my iphone on my PC. Anyone got any solutions?

    • No worry dell mobile connect developer team fix this issue in next update till now enjoy version 3.0 ๐Ÿ™‚

      As soon as you know if new update come let me know here then I upload that version for you all

  15. In case the app installation fails you can refer to this post to using the powershell as admin.

    Any idea what the issue is?
