Multiple Cab RRS feed

  • Question

  • My scenerio is to develop a Cab file which will first detect that smart device is either poket PC or smart phone.
    on the basis of result it will install appropriate CAB file.

    i searched alot on internet and found limited amount of knowledge.
    i go throug many articles and also white paper that come with mobile SDK 6.0 names multicabinstall (i think so)

    following url also helped me.
    my understanding says that in install_init() i should write my code which will decide wat CAB to install.
    but at my workstation install_init() is not working.
    i downloaded sample application from above URL and to my goodness that sample application also unable to call install_init(), but comments to above url shows that it works fine on other user's system.
    i also have .DEF file which exports install_init().
    help me regarding this.

    It will show you how to create a container cab to install multiple cab files contained in it.
