I want to deliver application on SD/MMC-Cards.

I have build a well-working cab-file with cabwiz.

The problem is, that the cab-file is deleted after executing.

Knows anyone how to achieve, that the cab-file is N O T deleted?

How can I execute the cab-file from a simple setup-program (which then saves the cab-file)?

Just make the file read-only and it won't be deleted after installation.

Sounds very nice,

but my MDA-Pocket PC has only a SoftInputPanel.

I can't find the ALT-Key and don't know how to get a property-panel.

Perhaps you can help?

If you use another file explorer like resco explorer, you can get to the properties by holding down the stylus on the file then choosing properties.

Set the File to Read Only on your PC before copying it to the SD/MMC-Card

Wow this is an old and unanswered thread.

The registry entry
HKCR\cabfile\Shell\open\command = 'wceload.exe "%1" /nodelete

On the device controls what is the default command to execute a .cab file so the above will leave it be.

Or you could try to add
HKLM\Software\apps\Microsoft Application Installer\nDynamicDelete = 0 (DWORD decimal)
To the cab and hope that this registry entry gets picked up immediately after installation.

Setting read only is the best user friendly way though, as you don't change default behaviour in the device.
