Creating cab file with cabarc



how to create an “addons” to integrate with windows xp installation cd? i check some file from and i found that there is a “.ini” file and a subdirectory “svcpack”. I try to create a cab file with the same file but when i execute the cabarc.exe with the following command cabarc n svcpack + *.exe i got an error message of Creating new cabinet ‘’ with compression ‘MSZIP’:
FCIAddFile() failed: code 1 [Failure opening file to be stored in cabinet]

can any one help me with this? thank you and God bless.
