Creating customizable .cab file for deployment RRS feed

  • User1399947920 posted


    I am developing scanning application for windows mobile 5.0 & 6.0. I have created .cab file for deployment on Intermec handheld device. With the .cab file I have added .sdf file for database.

    When I make changes in the code, for that .cab file is created and then it is run on Handheld device. Issue is when I run .cab database is reset and all previous values are deleted. One solution that I moved is to remove the .sdf file while creating .cab file and before installing it on device take the back up of database.

    Do anyone has idea to create customizable .cab files so that when I run this cab file it will check if the .sdf file exists then it will not overwrite it and simply the .exe file will be overwritten?

    Or any other way to update the program using the cab files?
