Deploying Mobile PocketPC Problem

I am facing some challenge on deploying my PocketPC app and I hope someone can help me.

I have written a Mobile App (Compact Framework 2.0) using VS2005.
The target device is Pocket PC 2003, WM5 and WM6.
I am using SQLCE for database.

When I click the “Play” button to deploy the app into a Pocket PC from VS2005, it works fines.
It will automatically detect and install the right CF2, SQL CE if it’s not presence.
(If I not mistaken, there are different CF2 file for different processor which is taken care by VS2005)

Now I want to sell this product. So I deploy the app into (MSI and CAB) format.

When I do a test install, it will only install my APP only nothing else.

It doest not install CF2, SQL CE,etc automatically.
My APP needs these two files to run.

How can I made my setup file able to detect this dependencies and install the right version of CF2 and SQL CE into the target device?

You help is much appreciated.
