Re: install exe without sync

I remember a while back this worked on some (not all) exe's, but you can use winrar to extract the cab file on the pc, then transfer it over (or it may work with pocketrar on the phone). Again, it did work for me on some files, but it also did not work on other files.

Re: install exe without sync

Try this:

1) keep device disconnected (no active sync session)
2) install exe as usual and, when standard installation dialog will appear, go on (later cab installation will begin when you'll connect phone to pc)
3) open regedit.exe
4) go to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows CE Services\AppMgr\Apps
5) there you'll find a list of installable cabs via active sync
6) under each application, the value ListCabFiles is the name of cab file and the value InstallDir is its position of file system.

Remember to uninstall exe after you copy/move the cab file (or delete application key) otherwise installation of cab files will start on next activesync session!!

Re: install exe without sync

I simply use Universal Extractor, it can extract some executables that softwares like 7-Zip and WinRar can't. This is not only useful for executable installers, but Windows MSI installers as well. Doesn't work on every single installers, but most of time it does.

Alot of the time you can just go to c:\program files\microsoft activesync\
and find the cab either in that location or in a folder named either the name of the program or by the company.
But that is not always the case (about 0.5% of the time) and that's when your process come in handy.

That's another way I have done this aswell.
