Download Configuration Service Provider

Windows Mobile 6.5
4/8/2010

The Download Configuration Service Provider enables an OMA DM server to initiate on the device downloads of .cab or Cab Provisioning Format (.cpf) files and installation of applications.

The Download Configuration Service Provider coordinates between Configuration Manager2, the Windows Mobile and the local database that tracks downloads. This Configuration Service Provider is typically used for mandatory downloads of application software and updates to support enterprise software management. It can accept both standard and Microsoft-specific parameter configuration requests and supports DownloadInstall operations.

Cc563003.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
The Download configuration service provider uses the Download Service to download packages. Because the Download Service does not guarantee that multiple packages will be downloaded in the order received from the OMA DM Download configuration service provider request, the Sequence and Atomic commands are not supported in the Download configuration service provider.

The following table shows the default security settings for the Download Configuration Service Provider. The default security role maps to each subnode unless specific permission is granted to the subnode.

Cc563003.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
Access to this Configuration Service Provider is determined by security roles. Because OEMs and mobile operators can selectively disallow access, ask them about the availability of this Configuration Service Provider. For more information about roles, see Security Roles and Default Roles for Configuration Service Providers.

./Vendor/MSFT/SwMgmt/Download/<X>/Ext/Microsoft/NotUserRemovable

Specifies whether the device will display the installed application in the Remove Programs dialog on the device. If TRUE, the associated application cannot be uninstalled.

The behavior for the valid values is:

  • TRUE: The application will not be shown in the remove programs dialog.
  • FALSE: This is the default value. The security role of the certificate used to sign the application .cab file determines whether the device will display the installed application in the remove programs setting control panel. If the application has the authenticated user security role, as determined from the signature of the .cab file, then the device displays the application in the Remove Program settings control panel. If the application does not have such a role, then the device does not display the application.

./Vendor/MSFT/SwMgmt/Download/<X>/Ext/Microsoft/InstallOptions

The Exec command starts the download and install procedure. Once the Exec command is accepted by the Configuration Service Provider, OMA status command accept code 202 is returned to the server. Any download and install related errors will be returned to the server using a generic alert. If installation succeeds, the download object is removed from the DM tree and an inventory entry is created. If the download or installation fails, the download object is not removed from the DM tree but the status code is updated.

Cc563003.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
Replacing the value of any parameter that supports Replace after an Exec command is received by the device will not change the behavior of the device. The Replace command fails with a 405 error.

To prevent the uncontrollable growth of stored data, the Download Configuration Service Provider periodically deletes objects it has created. This cleanup action won’t delete an object whose access is set as read-only.
