Silent CAB installs by default

Ever want to make all CAB file installs on your device be silent?  Simply add the following registry key to your platform:


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTcabfileShellOpenCommand]
    @=”wceload.exe “%1″ /nodelete /noaskdest /noui”

  1. FYI, the answer to invoking wceload is to use CeCreateProcess. On the options to wceload, you’re right about the first install, but the second time you attempt to install xyz.cab, you’ll still get a modal confirmation dialog. Any ideas on how to suppress this dialog?

    "The previous version of ‘providerName appName’
    will be removed before the new one is installed.
    Select OK to continue or Cancel to quit."
