Installer for Compact Framework

Can anyone recommend an install building program for .Net 2 Compact Framework. The target is a pocket pc 2003 device.

I've got a program that has several dll's & sql mobile. The installer needs to install the CF framework, sql mobile & the application all without ActiveSync.

Currently I'm using activesync with innosetup, but that requires the user to click 'yes' half a dozen times at activesync prompts.

I haven't used 2003 and CF, but if you want to do it yourself, I think that the way to install multiple CABs is to place them all on the device and include a Setup.dll in the first CAB which you install: when your Setup.dll is then notified that the first CAB has been installed, it then launches an EXE whch invokes wceload.exe repeatedly to install each of the remaining CABs

Found a good one for anyone who's interested. 
Search for "Spb Airsetup".
-Easy for developer and end user.
-Multiple CABs
-Install via the device's browser.

BTW - This is not a plug, i've no affiliation with them.
