I want to deploy my ArcGIS Mobile app to a Windows Mobile device but I don't want users to deal with installing the AGMRuntime.CAB. I tried just adding the following dlls to my project:


but I still keep getting this error:

Missing ArcGIS registry key. 

on this line of code

 this.map1 = new ESRI.ArcGIS.Mobile.Map();

when I run my application in the Windows Mobile Emulator through Visual Studio 2008. Anyone knows if I'm doing something that's imposible?


I found a sample application here that does this for ArcGIS Mobile 9.3. I haven't had time to try this for 10.
