Install to Windows Mobile Device from Windows Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My application has a component that gets installed onto a user's desktop computer, and a component that gets installed onto their mobile device. I would like to use a single installer to install both components. I would like the user to run it from their desktop computer, then have it prompt the user to connect their phone to the computer by USB at which point it installs the mobile component onto the phone.

    Is this feasible or do I need to use to installers? If it feasible, are there any resources explaining how to do it?

  • You would be better off by using an installer, such as EzSetup from SPB. You can launch it from an msi file that installs your desktop app.
    Another approach is to talk directly to CEAppMgr - like this.
