install cab file to \Application folder

install cab file to \Application folder

How do I prevent the installation of a cab file (bundled from package studio) from prompting the user to choose where to install the application to?

It gives the user 3 choices to install to \Device, \Cache Disk and \Application.  I would like to have it always install to \Application.

How would I accomplish this?

We are using motorola Model MC67NA windowsCE/mobile 6.5) mc55x mobile devices

tia.

You're looking for a no UI, silent install.

 

start /wait wceload.exe /noui \Application\YOURCAB.cab  /silent

Thanks!

 

Would I just place that in the Post-Install Script with the auto-execute unchecked 

or

put that as the Format line in the auto-execute section?

It's been some time since I've supported CE devices as our customer base is moving to Android. It's worth experimenting so that you understand the mechanisms in place but I think logically it would make sense for it to be a post-install script with the auto-execute disabled but you might also just be able to modify the auto-execute portion directly with those added parameters.

We ended up rebuilding the cab file using this solution...
