CoreCon deployment - 'The system cannot find the specified file' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm having troubles trying to deploy\debug my smart device application on a Windows Compact 7 image.

    I can connect to the device and the application files appear to be deployed to the devices program files folder.

    The build fails during deployment just after deploying the NETCFv3.5.Messages.EN.CAB file


    Deploying 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v3.5\windowsce\diagnostics\'

    The system cannot find the file specified.


    I have verified that the CAB file is deploy to the device, currently it is getting saved to \Windows folder.

    I can copy the application files to USB drive and it loads OK on the device, however I cannot debug it.


    Is this CAB installer/uninstaller support missing from my OS Design?


    I can run the deployed application from program files and it loads OK (doesn't work, but that another issue!);

    Any help much appreciated.

  • I'm pretty sure this is the CAB file installer. I just cant get an image to build so I cant make one that includes the component lol

  • Hello,

    I got the same issue, did you manage to solve it? if so, can you share your solution?

  • I've run into issues with that particular CAB file as well. The solution that works is to just create an image than contains the ".NET Compact Framework 3.5 String Resources" component (SYSGEN_DOTNETV35_SR). Why can't you build an image? What error do you get?
    Good luck,
