Deploying a CF 2.0 application. Which cab files ?


Steve B.


I'm writing a deployment process for a CF 2.0 application.
I've build an autorun.exe that is shipped on a storage card and that install
a set of cab files and cpf files according a custom file.

I'd like to know which cab files for the CF .Net and Sql Mobile are required
and in which order to make the application works ?

The app is a standard CF 2.0 application that use SQL Mobile with merge
replication. The device is a PPC running WM5 with phone capabilities.

I suppose installing cab files is in this order :

1. custom cpf files (setting some registry settings for communications)
2. CF 2.0 cab files
3. Sql Mobile cab files
4. custom libraries (CF "home made" assemblies)
5. The app itself
6. others pieces of the app (like html help files, etc...)

Is it the right order ?
What cab files are required for the CF 2.0 and SQL Mobile deployment (there
is several versions, phone, ppc, wm5 and I don't know which one I've to use)

Thanks in advance,







It's the same thing for sql ce.

Go to :Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SmartDevices\SDK\SQL
Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SmartDevices\SDK\SQL Server\Mobile\v3.0\wce400
For example : folder:wce400\armv4 for Pocket PC 2003 Pocket PC 2003 SE
Folder:wce400\armv4i for Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Windows Mobile
5.0 Smart Phone

I hope that you help
