This information applies to the following project types:
When you launch this wizard from the Mobile Devices view, it is called the Windows Mobile Wizard. When you launch this wizard by creating a new Smart Device project, it is called the Smart Device Setup Wizard.
Use the Windows Mobile Wizard to create an installation package for Windows Mobilepowered devices such as smartphones and PDAs. The package installs the necessary Windows Mobile .cab files to the end users desktop computer first, and then launches the Application Manager or uses either Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center (for Windows Vista and later) or Microsoft ActiveSync (for Windows XP) to copy the correct files onto the Windows Mobilepowered device. It can also optionally register an icon file on the desktop computer with Mobile Device Center or ActiveSync, so that the icon is displayed within the Application Manager window.
ActiveSync 3.x or later or Windows Mobile Device Center must be installed on the desktop computer in order to run a desktop-to-device installation. Active Sync 4.x or Windows Mobile Device Center is required for Windows Mobile 5.x and later devices.
Use the Smart Device Setup Wizard to create a dedicated installation for a smart device application. This installation type should be used only for straight-to-device installations that do not use ActiveSync, Windows Mobile Device Center, or any other desktop component.
You can also use the Smart Device Setup Wizard with purely native code if you are targeting a storage card.
