The [CEStrings] section is required and contains string substitutions for the application name and the default installation directory.
|For Windows Mobile:The provider name and application name specified in the Version and CEStrings sections cannot contain XML reserved characters and Windows Mobile file system reserved characters, such as: \/:*?" < >|&.|
|For Windows Embedded CE:The provider name and application name specified in the Version and CEStrings sections cannot contain XML reserved characters and Windows Embedded CE file system reserved characters, such as: \/:*?" < >|&.|
[CEStrings] AppName = app_name InstallDir = default_install_dir
The name of the application.
Other instances of %AppName% in the .inf file are replaced with this string value.
Note: This string is restricted to a length of 40 characters. Longer strings will be truncated. This restriction is because applications are registered on the device with a specific name for uninstallation purposes, which is created by concatenating the provider name and the application name. The following example shows the format used: < providername> < appname>. For more information, see Version.
The name of the default installation directory.
Other instances of %InstallDir% in the .inf file are replaced with this string value.
Note: If a default installation directory is specified, an Installation Volume Selection prompt appears when the application is installed on the device. If you want to avoid this prompt, do not specify a string for %InstallDir%. For more information, see User Selected Installation.
The following code example uses this format:
[CEStrings] AppName="Game Pack" InstallDir=%CE1%\%AppName%
