CAB Install double-click version for Windows XP

Users who are new to Windows mobile-based Smartphone often ask why by clicking on a CAB, they get to see _setup.xml, XXX.001, YYY.002, ZZZ.003, etc. That is because by default, Windows XP (Explorer) opens CAB files (be it Smartphone or PPC CAB) instead of installing them. It literally opens another folder showing you the contents of the CAB.  To install the CAB file on a Smartphone or Pocket PC, the file has to be copied to the device and then run / executed from a file browser on the device.  What a hassle. has a program to avoid this issue by allow you to run a CAB setup from your Windows computer and install it to your Windows Mobile device.
