VS2005 Cab project Install Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've created a smart device cab project in Visual Studios 2005 for my Visual Basic project according to instructions found on msdn, then I copy/paste the .cab file and the .inf file into the root directory of the device which is a Windows mobile 5.0. However, when I click on the cab and have it install to the device (no storage card present), it runs through the entire status bar only to fail. The only error I receive is the cryptic "Installation of (Appname).cab was unsuccessful". The Install directory is created in Program files but it is unpopulated.
