HowTo / Notes

Installer Workaround to get the .CAB

by Dan  (July 28th 2008)

If you're like me, and the only reason you wanted ActiveSync was to get the .CAB file for a Windows Mobile program packaged as an installer which is complaining you don't have ActiveSync installed, you might be able to work around the requirement by adding a "PocketPC" folder to your C:\, then applying this key with Wine regedit:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\CEAPPMGR.exe]

ActiveSync still won't install, but some installers that require it will put their CAB files in your virtual C:\PocketPC, then silently fail.
