DefaultInstall

Windows CE .NET

The [DefaultInstall] section is required and describes the default installation of your application.

[DefaultInstall]
Copyfiles=copyfile_list_section[,copyfile_list_section]
AddReg=add_registry_section[,add_registry_section]
[CEShortcuts=shortcut_list_section[,shortcut_list_section]]
[CESetupDLL=setup_DLL]
[CESelfRegister=self_reg_DLL_filename[,self_reg_DLL_filename]

Parameters

shortcut_list_section
String that identifies one more section that defines shortcuts to a file, as defined in the [CEShortcuts] section.
setup_DLL
Optional string that specifies a Setup.dll. It contains customized functions for operations during installation and removal of the application. The file must be specified in the [SourceDisksFiles] section.
self_reg_DLL_filename
String that identifies files that self-register by exporting the DllRegisterServer and DllUnregisterServer Component Object Model (COM) functions. You must specify the files in the [SourceDisksFiles] section.

During installation, if installation on the device fails to call the exported DllRegisterServer function of the file, the exported DllUnregisterServer function of the file will not be called during removal.

The following code example uses this format.

[DefaultInstall]
CopyFiles = CopyToInstallDir,CopyToWindows
AddReg = RegSettings
CEShortcuts = Shortcuts
