Installer Run App feature


H

Harry Simpson

I'm using the PocketPC Installer Professional app for deploying our app.
Works great but we've decided we have to move the Profile.cpf out of the
installation itself to keep the installation the same for all clients while
be able to provide the variable Profile.cpf to clients separately.
So this installer app allows the developer to shell out to one application
at the end of the install app. My thought was to write another small
bootstrap app that I'd call from here to programmatically add a WiFi Profile
and set it's various properties programmatically - is this possible?
(Motorola MC70 - Windows Mobile 5)

The other idea I had was to call WCELOAD with the name of the Custom.cpf but
I cannot find wceload.exe on the device anywhere to list in the program
path. I know it's there since it auto invokes on physical tap of any CPF or
CAB file.

Basically I need to be able to have a variable file like Custom.Cpf which
will set up a particular WiFi profile with that clients particular AP essid
and passphrase etc. This has to be bootstrapped before the device can
communicate with the AP to start with.

TIA

Anything/everything built into the OS will be in \windows. Since the File
Explorer in WM hides most of the system files, that probably explains why
you can't find it; Remote File Viewer should be able to see it. Remember
that, on Windows Mobile, only one copy of WCELOAD can be running at a time,
so you have to carefully consider install processes that involve opening
multiple CAB files (they have to be serialized so only one is in process at
a time). Further, you don't need to specify a path for EXEs built into the
OS. The loader will know to try \windows...

Thanks Paul - I'll give that a go.

most of the Symbol/Motorola devices can be custumized for a cold boot.
You have to export the registry keys to a *.reg file.
Put the *.reg file in the \Application folder and it will be loaded after a
cold boot.

Thanks Ruediger but Windows Mobile 5 "cold boot" won't do that anymore. HAs
to be a Cleanboot......
