Updated Vista / WMDC / CF 3.0 compatible CABviaActiveSync now available

cabviaactivesync.jpg
I'm pleased to a minor update to CABviaActiveSync - which is FREE since version 1.4, previously only available to MoDaCo Plus members. (hence the topic bump)

The application has been updated to version 1.5, which adds support for .net Framework 3.0 (which broke v1.4) and of course includes the previously added full Vista WMDC support (as well as XP ActiveSync support of course), including running smoothly with UAC enabled.

From my original posting:

How can a small application change your mobile life? Here's how :P

Last week, nedge2k and I were lamenting how much of a nuisance it was to install CABs on the phone. Sure, it's not complex, but there are a bunch of applications out there to try and choose from that do it (one by myself from a long time ago included!), once you've installed a CAB you need to keep a copy of it for future installs, it doesn't integrate with ActiveSync and - well - in general, it's a bit painful.

With this in mind, I mentioned to nedge2k that writing an application to integrate CABs with the ActiveSync installer wouldn't theoretically be very hard. This morning, I actually got the inspiration to do something about it... so it's my pleasure to introduce CABviaActiveSync 1.3. :)

So how does it work?

- CvAS installs on your desktop PC, and adds a right-click context menu for CAB files
- When you click the menu, the CAB is automatically parsed, copied to your ActiveSync directory, and a regular ActiveSync install is initiated
- When the install is complete, the CAB file stays in the ActiveSync directory, meaning you can un/reinstall in future, without having to archive the CAB away somewhere.

For me, it's a serious time saver.

The application can be downloaded HERE.

Enjoy, and feedback is appreciated! :D

My error is:

The application has encountered an error: 0x0, with following description:


The operation completed successfully.


Additional information:


Unable to load the main module C:\Program Files\CABviaActiveSync\%APPNAME%.EXE or one of its dependencies.


Please contact the publisher of this application for more information.

I'm using ActiveSync 4.2 - the danish version.

I've been getting this error on Vista when I try to use it: "Application Manager cannot install this application on your mobile device due to an invalid setup file. Reinstall and try again." This happens no matter which .cab I attempt to execute it on. And yes, I'm an administrator on the machine. ;) Any ideas?

Me too. I used this application a lot on XP and just recently upgraded to Vista. Any news on this? The titlebar of the popup window is "Invalid Windows CE Setup Files" if that helps (although I guess the message text made that obvious!)

Sadly, I get this too, which is a shame as this looks like it would be a great app!

I'm getting the same error as post #7 on my nice new shiny S710.

I've tried installing CF.Net, but it says I'v got a later version on there - I'm guessing it's included with WM6.

Cheers,

GB

Paul, you should rename it to:

CAB2Mobile

CABtoWM or something.. because CABviaActivesync is misleading, considering it also works with Windows Device Center
