In this article, we will go over the process of installing FieldGenius or EVR on a device using the EXE Installation file.

(Not for tablets, just Windows Mobile devices and Onboard instruments. For tablets, just run the EXE file to install.)


Step 1: Install Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) on PC

(Windows 10 does not support Windows Mobile Device Center, you may need to use a Windows operating system before Windows 10)

Step 4: Install MicroSurvey Transfer or MicroSurvey Data Exchange

Use MicroSurvey Transfer to manage data transfer for MicroSurvey and MapScenes CAD Products if your device has a USB port and uses a mobile operating system. This is not required if you use an SD card or USB storage device for data transfer. MicroSurvey Data Exchange is a free dwg viewer and Import/Export utility that is a perfect companion for MicroSurvey data collection software.
