I'd like to announce a FREE webapp that I've just created, CabGen. It allows you to quickly and easily convert your <wap-provisioningdoc> xml configuration file into an installable .cab file. I wanted this functionality for my own apps, so I decided to make it a little more generic and give it to the community! If you don't know what wap-provisioningdoc means, then this probably isn't for you but for those of you who know what it means, I hope this is helpful!

A great tool for linux & mac folks ... I think that makecab.exe is available, if not included in Windows XP (Pro?).

Code:
makecab _setup.xml RegEdits.cab
Thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

I've tested the online tool and got error message:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /users/supbro.com/htdocs/supware.net/CabGen/MakeCAB.class on line 465

Interesting, is your xml lengthy? I just tried it again without a problem. Maybe it was a one-time hiccup?

That certainly should be small enough. It seems that the MakeCab.class php file I'm using must have an infinite loop somewhere. If you're interested in trying to fix it, it's here:
