Great Installation advice on the Smartphone Developer newsgroup

Lars Peter recently posted this excellent post on the microsoft.public.smartphone.developer newsgroup.

In the post Lars describes using Nullsoft Installer (NSIS) to build a desktop installation package to include multiple cab file installations. This is ideal for those scenarios when you want to deploy more than just one application cab file, for example OpenNETCF’s Smart Device Framework, Sql Ce or the .NETCF runtimes themselves.

Lars’ post includes a sample install script, which you can pass a number of cab files for installation. You can also download the sample script from Lars’ server.

Nice one Lars!
