Deploying C# application trought ActiveSync and cab



I read a lot about how to deploy my C# application and can't get it
working for all target.

I tryed that sample:

But the installer cant install on my device (PPC2003 Dell Axim /XScale
proc.) and give a unvaluable error like "Install of XXX failed, try

I get it work by removing all .CAB except ARMV4 one

How can i get get it work for all devices?
I read articles talking about generating only one .cab (.net should not
be specific .exe)
but how can I do this? Any example.

Witch target should I use specially in that section?
10=,"ARMV4_Setup",,"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\v1.0.5000\Windows CE\wce300\ARMV4\"

We are using VS2003 and C# .NET, I should not involve any third party
where sources are not available...

Thanks a lot!




I found a solution in the article "Packaging and Deploying Pocket PC
Applications" By Simon Kittle

The NOTE 5 was applyed to me:

"I've found that for some reason, if the X86 CAB file is put at the
start of the CAB file list, as in most examples, it can cause problems
installing the app on some devices. What happens is that you get a
message on the device saying "<Application Name> failed to install.
Please run setup again.". I don't know why this is, but I've got better
results by putting it at the end of the list."
