I am creating a Windows CE CAB file that contains 2300 files. When I attempt to open it on Pocket PC 2000,2002,2003 devices, I get a "not a valid Windows CE CAB file" error. I have tried e-PocketSetup 2003 and WinCE CAB Manager to create the CABs and I get the same error on the PocketPC side.

Does anyone know of a workaround to this?

Thanks.

Hi,
The .cab format that the Pocket PC supports is very limited. So there are special installers that create the .cab files like eMbedded VC.

Also, check out http://www.pocketpcdn.com/articles/ezsetup.html and http://www.snapfiles.com/get/pocketpc/cabinst.html
