VisualMR V1 for WindowsMobile

If you have a PocketPC that has access to your home network (e.g. WLAN or Bluetooth AP), VisualMR will turn it into a cool, feature rich and easy to use remote control that controls all your SoundBridges from anyplace with LAN access.

On this page you'll find the old, stable version V1.6. The current version V2 for WindowsMobile can be downloaded here.

Main differences between V1.6 and V2 are

All changes can be found in VisualMR's version history.

Installation Requirements

If you like to buy a PocketPC for running VisualMR I've compiled a few general recommendations in my VisualMR-FAQ.

Updating from older VisualMR

If you already installed a previous version of VisualMR just install the new one overwriting the older version. Important: Make sure that the old version isn't running when installing the update. You can end VisualMR in the 'Select SoundBridge' form using 'File'/'Exit' (or simply reset your PocketPC).

Download and Installation

If you like VisualMR please consider donating to support its development.


Please read the enclosed ReadMe carefully, especially that the software is provided 'AS IS' without warranty of any kind and that you use it on your own risk :-)

The downloaded zip-compressed file contains the ReadMe and the installers (CAB-files) for VisualMR as well as the BlueGlass-Skin.

Just copy the provided 'VisualMR_PPC.CAB' to your PocketPC (for example using ActiveSync) and execute it on the PocketPC using FileExplorer. The Installer will create a directory 'VisualMR' under '\Program Files' and create a shortcut into "Start Menu/Programs". Nothing else is installed or altered.

For VisualMR to run correctly you also need to install the 'BlueGlass' skin that comes with VisualMR: Therefore copy+install 'Blueglass.XXX.CAB' as you've done with VisualMR.CAB described above. There are two versions of 'BlueGlass':

If in doubt you can install both versions of BlueGlass on the same PocketPC.


To uninstall just go to 'Start'/'Settings'/'System'/'Remove Programs' and select ' VisualMR' and ' VisualMR BlueGlass' for removal.
