    Hi

    Hate to ask but i have used the search function but not found anything that helps. Basically i want to know how i can make a .cab file that will install onto a hpPPC (using "ARM"). I have edited the files. Hopefully someone here can help me. I've tried using PocketPc Installation Creator, and CabwizSP. Also on Board B4P SetupBuilder.

    > All ppc's since the ppc 2002 os was released in 2002 are "ARM" compatible.

    Enclosed hpGps.Inf.

    Thanks

    To create a cab I always use SetupBuilder,
    instructions can be found here
    Basic4ppc - Windows Mobile programming and Pocket PC Development

    -=edit=-
    If you want to create a ppc installer (cab file) you do not need to include the development files
    *.sbp
    *.bas
    *desktop*.dll

    also you DO need to include an exe file, e.g. the compiled version of the *.spb file, this will include most of the dll files.

    -=edit2=-
    there are some ?? in the inf file, this could result in errors, but I'm not sure if you added them or the CabWiz/Setupbuilder application

    Anyway use the setupbuilder, it will work (as long as there is an exe present)
