Hello.

I would like to know, if there is a way to get a new cbfs.cab without running CBFSSetup.exe and reinstalling/replacing all existing samples/drivers.

Because, whenever a new build of CBFS is available, we have to download the whole installer and reinstall everything.

It would be much easier to download just cbfs.cab and reinstall it with our application's built-in install mechanism.

Thank you.

No, it's not possible. Updates can include changes in user-mode APIs and not just CAB files, so it's necessary to install the complete package. Also note, that CBFS 4 is not a drop-in replacement for CBFS 3. Technically these are different products which can be installed in parallel (on user system) and work together. Their API is different as well (for breaking changes see Release Notes in the help file).


Sincerely yours

Yes, I am aware that we cannot just simply replace CBFS 3 with CBFS 4.
And I did not mean that.

When we deliver our applications to customers, we only include cbfs.cab, CbFs.dll, msvcp100.dll, and msvcr100.dll to our installation package.

Developers may install the whole package, but, customers will deal only with above listed files.

So, may be you could let users/developers donwload only dedicated files (cbfs.cab and CbFs.dll) optionally.

Users must not download anything for CBFS - we don't work with end users and CBFS can not be installed or updated from CAB by the user anyway.

And developers download the package for developers which is what we provide. There's absolutely no sense to create unnecessary entities like separate packs of files. Install the provided EXE and take what you need, that's simple.
