Description

Please note that to be able to copy an XML data source file, the device has to be rooted, we are not responsible if a problem occurs at that point.

 

InformationLarge

We strongly suggest using a Devolutions Online Drive data source to import an XML data source from Windows to Android instead of importing an XML data source directly. The Devolutions Online Drive is free and can be synchronized across all your devices.

2.Check the data source file name (in our example it's Connections.xml)
 

3.Copy the XML data source that you want to import from your Windows or your MAC computer to your device. Make sure that the file you want to import has the same name as the current file on your Android device
 

4.Copy the file in data/data/com.devolutions.remotedesktopmanager/files on your Android device (this will overwrite the existing file)
 

5.In Remote Desktop Manager for Android, open the connections section
 

6.Select the data source for which you imported the file or execute a refresh on the data source if the appropriate data source is selected. You should now see your imported connections.
