Install program on Windows Mobile device using msi/exe file…


It is easy to install a program on your windows mobile device using .msi or .exe files. You don’t necessarily need the .cab files. But before you can use the .msi/.exe file, you should install Microsoft ActiveSync on your PC. After that, download the .msi/.exe file onto your PC. Then connect your Windows Mobile device to the PC (when you connect the device, ActiveSync detects the device and syncs with it). After successfully connecting your device to the PC, you can just double click the .msi/.exe file and start the installation on your PC. Go through the install wizard and complete the install process. At the end of the process, AtiveSync takes charge and copies over the required files to your windows mobile device. At the end, ActiveSync asks you to check your device for further info on the installation process (some programs may not need any additional steps but some might). I installed Office Communicator Mobile 2007 R2 on my HTC HD2 and after ActiveSync copied over the required files to my phone, I could see a .CAB file being installed on my phone. I wasn’t prompted for any more steps. It just finished the install by itself.
See, easy right?
Have fun..
