Deploy .Net CF as Visual Studio does

Hello.

Every time a debug is performed into a PPC using Visual Studio 2005,
the IDE deploys the .Net CF into de device. Is there any way to write
a desktop application that does the same thing?

What I've been doing is developing a desktop application that uses
RAPI.dll in order to copy the .Net CF CAB and then I run the process
"\windows\wceload.exe" to install the cab.

But I would like to find some code that does this operation in a
transparent way for the user... I think that the best approach is the
one implemented by Visual Studio.

Thanks.

Hi Peter.

Thanks for your quick answer!

I've tried what you say. But anyway there is a problem. The .Net CF
for Windows Mobile 5 asks for a soft reset of the PPC once the install
process ends.
On the other hand, when Visual Studio deploys that cab it doesn't seem
to have the need to perform a soft reset.

That's why I'm trying to do the deploy as Visual Studio does. Because
someway its deployment is more transparent.

For WM5, under windows folder there is load_cab.exe. If u give your
cab file as a parameter, after install it won't ask you for restart.
