Mobile Device Package Editor is an installation development tool that lets you create an .INF file and compile it to one or more CAB files that install a mobile device application.
It supports the Microsoft® Windows Mobile platform for Pocket PC and Smart phone devices.
In the Mobile Device Package Editor's Installation Expert interface, you complete dialogs to specify the installation resources and parameters.
These installation options generate the project file in .INF format, which is used to compile the installation .CAB files.
For advanced customization, you can edit the .INF directly within the Mobile Device Package Editor. Changes that you make in Installation Expert are automatically reflected in the .INF file, and vice versa. You can open an .INF file from any vendor or other third party in the Mobile Device Package Editor, and compile it to a .CAB. You also can open a Pocket PC .CAB to edit and recompile it.
