Cab files, Apache and Windows Mobile

Downloading a Cab file to a PDA from an Apache webserver gives a load of text instead of a prompt asking to ‘Save As’.

To rectify you need to either add a .htaccess file to the webserver if there is not one there. If there is you need to add the following line of text:

AddType application/x-cab-compressed cab

Once that is in the .htaccess file the files will download properly.
