Hi, i have the HTC cingular 3125. i purchased Bluecast to listen to music over my blue tooth head set, and it said that NETCFSetupv2 is required to run the program corectly. so i downloaded it and put it on my micro sd card and opened it up in file explorer on my phone and i get this error

There is no application associated with "NETCFSetupv2". Run the application first and then open this file inside the application.

i moved the file to the phones memory and it does the same thing. any ideas

Hi,

is it possible, that the file is named NETCFSetupv2.msi If this is the case, then you have to start the installation from your desktop doubleclicking the file. The installation itself is a desktop installation, which will automatically install the .NET CF via ActiveSync.

I hope that helps.

Cheers, Peter

Hi,

I'm curious, how you've downloaded the file. If you have downloaded the file itself directy by your phone, than there will be no direct way on your phone to install the file. An MSI File is a desktop installer format. No chance.

If you have downloaded the file, you shall have copied already by using ActiveSync I think, if you haven't used a cardreader otherwise.

In any way - take a look at you manufacturers or operators manual. There it shall be described how to do it from scratch.

If you have already experience with Visual Studio and installed it properly with all necessary prequisites, than you shall also be able to install the the .NET Compact Framework by the according CAB File.

Okay, that shall be it for the moment. These hints shall show you a way, how to get the .NET CF installed.

Cheers, Peter

Here is an approach to install .net compact framework on device without ActiveSync:

1. First download .NETCFSetupv2.msi to your desktop computer and install it on the computer.

2. Copy the right cab file according to this list to the device via bluetooth, infraRed, memery card or whatever. For example, this cab is for Pocket PC 2003:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v2.0\WindowsCE\wce400\armv4\NETCFv2.ppc.armv4.cab

3. Install the cab on the device.
