Building a PocketPC Deployment Package

P: n/a
I am looking for recommendations on the best installation packages everyone
likes right now. I have a PocketPC application for which I want to build a
install solution. I have tried many trial versions of various products, and
have tried using the deployment solution built-in to Visual Studio .NET 2003.
I have yet to find one that works well.

I want something simple to use, that will build a smart install in which I
can include all the processor-specific .CAB files, and the install will
install the right version on the PocketPC device. I have yet to find
something that "fits the bill". What does everyone else use for this right
now?

- Thanks,

JRD

this is a good start:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...deployment.asp

however, i'd put the shell code in a seperate project - one that can be run
over and over again independent of running setup. reason being, your pc
could/should be used as a deployment center if installation is going to
occur for many devices. you really don't want to setup the pc again, just
shell out the cab info to the win ce app manager.

but that's my 0.02 usd.

hth,
