    .cab files work, but not .exe?

    I am new to PDA,s but each time I try to install a .exe file it gives me an error of not supported. But I install the .cab file and it works as I think it should. The last example I have is phone alarm. Is this correct? Thanks

    Hey there and welcome. .cab files are for installing on the device. To install .exe connect to PC via ActiveSync and run on the PC.

    What about when .cab files don't work? Then what?

    If you have a .cab on your devise and it won't install on your devise it sounds like you've got an incorrect .cab or a corrupt file ... not sure.

    .cab files you run on the device to install
    .exe files you run on your computer with your device connected to it to install
