Currently it seems as if IS just does the most basic operation to get a Mobile device install, i.e. for Palm - add PRC to the Install/QuickInstall, for PPC, just passes over the cab file running the CEAPPMGR after building the simple CE INI file.

What I'd like to see is more detection of the device, and of course that's on the PPC side. With Windows Mobile and RAPI, at a minimum, there is a lot of information that can be returned such as device specifics. I'd like to see access to this information via InstallScript or the IS IDE to set install conditions. For example, I'd like to install one "Feature" if Windows Mobile 5, another if "Pocket PC 2003 SE".

Need to continue the effort here and go beyond that of simple CAB passing.

Thx
