Adding setup.dll to a Smart Device CAB Project?

I already have a Smart Device CAB Project, it currently does not execute any custom code, it just installs.

I need to add setup.dll for custom install and deinstall steps. Do I need a different type of project or can I integrate it into the Smart Device CAB Project?

Using VS2008

I have:

Setup Project
Setup Wizard
CAB Project
Smart Device CAB Project

Windows Mobile 5/6
LVL 40

I tried MSDN first and the docs say:

"For Windows Mobile, if you are generating your .cab file by creating a Smart Device CAB Project in Visual Studio, you can specify your setup DLL in the CE Setup DLL field in the Project Properties window."

However, in the Project Properties in VS 2008 I see no such field.

I've been trying that, and my Properties window has been empty. But I clicked around a bit; I found that even if I had the Project open, the Properties window was empty, but as I Right-clicked the Project and chose Properties, finally the window populated. From that point on, when single clicking either CAB project I see the correct properties, as expected.

This is certainly some sort of Visual Studio bug, but now that I can edit the properties, its ok for now.
