  • Hi,

    You can use wceload.exe to install CAB files passing in different parameters such as /noaskdest and /noui, as detailed in the following thread :-

  • Hi,

    Do you have WCELoad.exe in the \Windows directory of your device?

    If not you may need to use the \Windows\Load_cab.exe instead.

    Hope this helps.

  • I found a solution from symbol website. using the following

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Symbol\Startup\Programs\prog10]
    "Name"="\windows\wceload.exe"
    "Command"="/noui \Windows\NETCFv2.wce5.armv4i.cab"
    "Continue"=dword:0
    "ColdBootOnly"=dword:1


    symbol giving two files named symbolmdk.cpy and symbolmdk.reg

    the .cpy file like this.
    \application\NETCFv2.wce5.armv4i.cab > \windows\NETCFv2.wce5.armv4i.cab

    I expecting your help in future

    Thanks &regards
