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)

Hi Mr. Gee

I tried the Procedure again, but with no luck. I am new with Cabs never needed this before.
