Deploy OTA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I just can't figure out how to deply an application OTA (over-the-air) in the means of the user uses Internet Explorer on the device, he "clicks" a link pointing to application cab-file (or a favourite), and the application should be installed automatically.

    With my current cab-file Internet Explorer opens the file as a textfile.

    So how do I force .cab files on web servers to be installed using Internet Explorer on Windows Mobile device?

    Thanks,

     Peter

  • That is probably because your web server is miss-configured and improper content type is set (or probably not set at all) for the .CAB. See this for more info.
