Administrators can use the Symantec LiveState Delivery CabGen utility to generate a cabinet file (.cab) that will install the Agent for Pocket PC and optionally configure the agent and install software on the Pocket PC device. End-users of Pocket PC devices can download the CAB file using Pocket Internet Explorer. When the download is complete, the installation occurs automatically.
CabGen.exe is located in
<drive>:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveState Delivery\Pocket PC\CabGen
Before you run the CabGen utility:

You can also enable provisioning and re-provisioning of the Pocket PC device, which can be used to preconfigure agent settings, assign appropriate jobs, and reset jobs for a device in the process of recovery. See Using the AutoConfig Service.
To use the CabGen utility:
Note: Launching CabGen from Windows Explorer without parameters will: 1) use the Agent.dat file in the current directory; 2) use the <drive>:\ProgramFiles\Symantec\LiveState Delivery\Pocket PC\Agent Manager\AgentFiles_420 folder for Agent Files; and 3) create an Agent420.cab file in the current directory.
Run the CabGen utility, located at <drive>:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveState Delivery\Pocket PC\CabGen.
The CabGen utility generates a file named Agent420.cab and places it in the CabGen folder.
Copy the file Agent420.cab to any directory that is accessible from a Web browser.
Using the Configuration Server as the location for the Agent420.cab file:
If you want Pocket PC users to download Agent420.cab from the Configuration Server, put Agent420.cab in the following directory on the server:
Users open their Web browser and connect to the following URL:
