Some software I install is done with an .exe file from the PC. It seems like these programs simply dump the CAB onto the phone for install. Does anyone know where this CAB is on the phone so I can copy it for re-install later?

Check the location you installed on your PC, the cab is usually there too

I have a quick question. I dowloaded Xtract that game. And I extracted the zip and i dont see a .cab file anywhere. Only a setup.xml and a few other files.

Sometimes it goes into a temp folder, it depends on the software. If I see it mention a location during the install process I check that folder for the cab file.

Ohh nevermind. So with CABviaActiveSync I just click it and it will install to my phone?

Sometimes you can open up the .exe file with 7-zip and just extract the cab file. Or, if you have sk tools, you can re-pack the program into a cab with their 'installed programs' tool.

Hi Doug!

You can find the .cab file(s) in C:\Program Files\Microsoft ActiveSync\XXXX

Where XXXX is the name of the software you have installed.
