    All-TCB in dll project.

    Hi

    if we use capability ALL-TCB in a dll project's mmp file, but the application using this dll is only using some free capabilities like for example capability LocalServices in its mmp file,

    So what will be the result when it comes to signing the app. would we need to symbian sign it or we could continue distributing self signed app ?

    Regards,
    S.

    The installer will check at the time of installation what capabilites you are using and, with which certificate you have signed your application, So You can not install an application with that capabilities, I think so.

    Only system-wide, Nokia approved DLLs would get All-TCB.

    A process cannot load a DLL with less capabilities than itself, so for the DLL, build/sign it with the capabilities needed of the actual application using/needing the DLL.

    Thumb Rule is "Calling Application must have equal or more Capability then Dlls that were called"

    Would it be that DLL's are required to have at least equal capabilities with the calling application, and this is due the fact that they are executed in the contex of the calling process.
