Installation information in a cab file

Post by hari » Tue, 31 Oct 2006 15:35:01


Hi ,

I have created a cab file using the functions in File Compresion
Interface( FCI) . The cab file contains only the exe and the dlls on which
the exe depends. But i do not specify any installation information( ex: .inf
file) while creating this cab file. Where should i specify the installation
information of this cab file like the default install directory, registry
entries etc.

That won't work. You must generate the CAB with CABWIZ so it can correctly
add the information and mark it as a CE CAB file.
