  var appManagerObj = deviceObj.ApplicationManager;
  var appPath = "C:\\Work\\MyApp.ipa";

  var appObj = appManagerObj.InstallApplication(appPath);
  // Launch the application
  appManagerObj.RunApplication(appObj);

  // Remove the application
  appManagerObj.RemoveApplication(appObj);
}

Python

def Test():
  # Obtain the ApplicationManager object
  deviceObj = Mobile.Device("iPhone")
  appManagerObj = deviceObj.ApplicationManager
  appPath = "C:\\Work\\MyApp.ipa"

  # Install the application
  appObj = appManagerObj.InstallApplication(appPath)
  # Launch the application
  appManagerObj.RunApplication(appObj)

  # Remove the application
  appManagerObj.RemoveApplication(appObj)

VBScript

Sub Test
  ' Obtain the ApplicationManager object
  Set deviceObj = Mobile.Device("iPhone")
  Set appManagerObj = deviceObj.ApplicationManager
  appPath = "C:\Work\MyApp.ipa"

  ' Install the application
  Set appObj = appManagerObj.InstallApplication(appPath)
  ' Launch the application
  appManagerObj.RunApplication(appObj)

  ' Remove the application
  appManagerObj.RemoveApplication(appObj)
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test();
var deviceObj, appManagerObj, appObj, appPath;
begin
  // Obtain the ApplicationManager object
  deviceObj := Mobile.Device('iPhone');
  appManagerObj := deviceObj.ApplicationManager;
  appPath := 'C:\Work\MyApp.ipa';

  // Install the application
  appObj := appManagerObj.InstallApplication(appPath);
  // Launch the application
  appManagerObj.RunApplication(appObj);

  // Remove the application
  appManagerObj.RemoveApplication(appObj);
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  // Obtain the ApplicationManager object
  var deviceObj = Mobile["Device"]("iPhone");
  var appManagerObj = deviceObj["ApplicationManager"];
  var appPath = "C:\\Work\\MyApp.ipa";

  // Install the application
  var appObj = appManagerObj["InstallApplication"](appPath);
  // Launch the application
  appManagerObj["RunApplication"](appObj);

  // Remove the application
  appManagerObj["RemoveApplication"](appObj);
}
