Windows Mobile: CABviaActiveSync

CabviaactivesyncInstalling programs which come in the CAB format, onto your Windows Mobile device can be a little tedious at times, as there are many steps involved.

You would normally have to copy the file onto your device and then run it from your device. It isn’t too bad once you are used to it, but when you install multiple programs or are a newcomer to Windows Mobile, it is a challenge. 

CABviaActiveSync makes this job easy as you can install programs directly from Windows Explorer. All you need to do is right click on the CAB file and select CABviaActiveSync. The program then opens up either WMDC or ActiveSync and installs the program using their own program managers.

This is great if you have just updated your ROM or you play around with lots of programs. Many steps are removed, making installations quicker.

There is not much more to say about this program, it does what it was designed to do. Hopefully future versions of WMDC will offer this same functionality.

Download it from Modaco, and as with everything at Inspect My Gadget, this is a freebie.
