Spb AirSetup
Spb AirSetup is a tool to create Pocket PC installations to be run directly on Pocket PC without desktop PC (for Over-the-Air downloading). It is a command line tool whereby you provide a CAB file, an EULA, a readme and other parameters for it to generate a compressed, self-contained, self-extracting installation (Pocket PC executable).

With the advent of Pocket PC Phone Edition (Pocket PC and mobile phone with built-in GPRS support integrated) Over-the-Air program downloading and installation is becoming a more and more common potential in the Pocket PC world. Using this potential the installation is performed on a Pocket PC without any support from a desktop PC. The only way to install applications directly on Pocket PC is using CAB files. However CAB files do have some serious limitations. They do not use compression, which is crucial for decreasing the size of Over-the-Air downloads. Neither do they provide an option to ask a user to accept the end-user license agreement, which may cause some serious legality problems.

Spb AirSetup solves all these problems and also offers some neater features.

Spb AirSetup features:
  • Compression
  • HTML Readme
  • End-user license agreement
  • Installation to custom folder
  • Install to Pocket PC without desktop PC (Over-the-air)
  • Spb AirSetup compression:
  • Installer program size is critically important for people who pay for GPRS traffic to download software. Spb AirSetup uses one of the best compression algorithms. Here is a table of file sizes for CABs and their corresponding installers as created by Spb AirSetup (real commercial CAB files are used).
