Process name: ActiveSync RAPI Manager

Product: Microsoft ActiveSync

Support: Help link   Update link   Uninstall tool  

Company: Microsoft (microsoft.com)

File: rapimgr.exe

Deployed with Microsoft ActiveSync, the RAPI Manager is a background process that integrates your PC with a mobile device that is synchronized. Remote Application Programming Interface (RAPI) is the standard through which your computer executes programs or functions through the mobile device. Without this process running, mobile devices will still sync, they just will not be able to call functions. RAPI was initially developed as a remote procedure call for Pocket PCs, but Microsoft has since migrated it to their mobile platform.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/rapimgr.exe.html

This file is necessary in order for you computer to make changes to your pda. Used in ActiveSync, as well as programs like Pocket Controller and Registry Editors JRoe
Rapimgr is associated with ActiveSync. May have an IP address as a placeholder for passthrough internet to a handheld terminal. Needed if you connect handheld devices or phones to your PC, otherwise not needed. Usually needs to be downloaded from Microsoft for it to be on a PC (not sure about Vista).  See also: Link Manning

Occupies TCP port 990 on all interfaces. Annoying because this port is reserved for the sftp service. gimbal

Part of ActiveSync. May be safe to kill it if it's hogging the CPU.

It uses a lot of CPU, gonna boot it and see what happens. c ya maybe Les
If a network connection cannot be established from the PDA to the PC, Active Sync will not be able to connect to the PDA. Jimmy
If you have a Sony cellphone and the file is not in the systemfolder, keep it. Make a search for hidden files. King Hans Sweden
