I am trying to build cab files and get a CAB Information
File Generation Error. No other specific message is
displayed. Do the generated CAB file function on a Pocket
PC 2003 device?

a) generation error
Look for a file "err.log"
That may say something.
Also - there was a bug where the generator got
confused if there was a resource file (the PKR file
zapped the directory name)
That is easy to fix by manually editing the
"my-app_MakeCAB.BAT" file.

b) Our CAB files work on on PPC 2003 devices.
We tested on the emulator before PPB was shipped.

HTH,

Nope, you are reading that right. I am on the next Beta. Just letting Sybase
know we still need to address this one!

Would you send me:
a) a screen snapshot of your project painter screen.
b) the generated BAT file
c) the generated INF file
d) any "err.log" if one is being generated
