Hello, I do not know if this is the proper group for this
question but here goes. We have sucesfully created a
PPB app for a client and are ready to deploy.

We can create the proper cab files for the application
and deploy to the PPC no problem using 'ezsetup'.

However, we can not create a CAB file that holds the
two file DSN's required for the app to work properly.
We end up having to manually copy these to the device
to get the app to run. Does anyone have any advice for
creating a CAB file that will properly deploy two file DSN's
to the PPC device ?

Thanks in advance.

On 5-Sept-2003 I posted a prelim version of a doc
for altering the INF file which generates the actual CAB files.
A variation on the second section (adding the PK DLLs) is
what you want to do...
Hmmm - maybe I'll add that to the doc before it
finally gets posted to sybase.com...

Go over that and you'll see how to do it.
