do not extract cab files, just copy the cab file to your storage card or internal memory, open up file explorer on your TP, locate the cab, tap on it and it should install. I recommend you install 95% of cabs to your internal storage BTW.

Re: how do i install cab files on touchpro

When you d/l the .cab, make sure you're selecting "save," and not "open" when asked by the dialog box. That's about the only thing I can think of.

Re: how do i install cab files on touchpro

The majority of applications may be installed to the card. The routine I follow involves the creation of a folder on the card to store CAB files in. The name I use is \CAB files. CAB files are routinely downloaded and/or moved to that folder and installed from there. Most of them are capable of running from the card, some though insist upon running from main memory.

Re: how do i install cab files on touchpro

are you sure you're not d/ling zip files? usually you just tap a cab file and choose where you want to store it.

Do you do a soft reset after the install? If not, you you'll need to do that
