I did a quick update to Tech Note 30, removing some of the bad links and
updating the sample scripts.

The hardest part is getting the .inf file right. A place to start might
be with the one we use for creating Runtime.ppc. exe, which is pretty
much a minimal installer, then having your program modify that:
<http://www.nsbasic. com/ce/info/ technotes/ TN30d.htm>

You can actually make it smaller by cleaning out all the unneeded
[CEDevice.*] paragraphs. For Windows Mobile, the only one you will need is

[CEDevice.PocketPC4 _ARM]
ProcessorType = 2577; StrongArm processors
VersionMin = 4.2
VersionMax = 100.0
BuildMax = 0xe0000000

You can then remove similar unneeded entries in the [SourceDisksNames] ,
[DefaultInstall] and [AddRegistry] sections.

Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask questions!
