Ever wanted to make a .cab but confused by the tools supplied by Microsoft? Maybe the expense of tools such as OCP's WinCE Cab Manager is too great for what you need?

Introducing the first and only online .cab maker, Cab-O-Matic! :)

Cab-O-Matic allows you to upload a .zip file containing the files and registry settings you want installed on your device and then packages them into a self-installing .cab file.

It's worth mentioning is the fact that this is currently in Beta. If for some reason you get an error or the .cab doesn't install, sling me a PM with the .cab and the .zip used to generate the .cab and i'll sort it :)

So, what you waiting for? Go make some .cab's!

EDIT: For those of you who may be confused as to why you'd want to use this....

Imagine a .cab file full of all your settings, owner details, software serial numbers etc. Granted, you'd have to have a look in the registry to find out the locations of some of these settings but most popular settings are published around the web and if you wanted to rebuild a .cab with custom settings, you could always use a tool like MSCEInf to extract the original .cab and then use my Cab-O-Matic to re-build it :D

UPDATE:

Cab-O-Matic now supports program menu shortcuts for .exe files, MSTRING and BINARY datatypes for registry settings.

yeah binary and multi_string support is coming, i just haven't gotten round to it yet - and as very few people would use them, I thought i'd release it as-is for the time being :)

Yes, but supporting standard registry files would be great too

nah, std reg file layout is (comparatively) overcomplicated. i've designed this tool so that anyone can use it but mainly for people who are uneasy using things like .inf files.

this tool will (soon) have all the features of cabwiz but in a simple, easy to use interface. as i said, the only features currently missing won't matter to the average user, hence why i'm not rushing to include them :)

Itás overcomplicated but unfortunately the registry exporters use that format to export it out. That's why I said reg2inf can convert from the overcomplicated .reg type to the .inf type :D

ahh i see where you're coming from now :)

well, we'll see how it goes. i may just add support for parsing an exported .reg file - would probably be best (whilst retaining support for the simple format it currently uses).
