Hello all,

I have some basic knowledge abotu makeCAB..

But i have now want to CAB a whole folder (with subfolder) into a CAB file, (when i open the CAB in file explorer, the folder structure should be the same)

Is it possible for CAB files to have a subfolders?

Thanks a lot!

You can make a cab file, however there will be only files listed in the cab file, it will not have the folder structure that you would've wanted ...i.e when you extract the files from the cabfile, you will only get the files and not folders/subfolders...

The file/component/directory table does the job of copying the files listed in the cab file to the appropriate folder...

The file/component/directory table...not forgetting the Media table.

If you want to reproduce the folder structure, use a ZIP or similar file.
