    Hi knowledge spices,
    this is vamsi i am working with series60 devices in Visual Studio C#.net with the help of Appforge on symbion OS.I managed to get the .SIS file for my application which is working fine.
    My query is how can i download this .SIS file from a server(Public IP)? and I came to know the installation will be done automatically when that .SIS file is given to Device. Urgent requirement.
    Thanks inAdvance.

    Just type in the URL in the Phone Browser. It will download and will Ask for Installation Permission.

    And make sure you define on your web server the correct MIME types for .sis (and .sisx files, if it is a signed installation file for Symbian 9 based devices):

    .sis -> application/vnd.symbian.install

    .sisx -> x-epoc/x-sisx-app

    How you do it depends on what/whose web server you have (and whether you have the rights to do it yourself or need to ask some administrator to do it for you).

    1) Place your sis on the server in a accessible location.
    2) Open your favorite browser on a PC and type in the URL of your file.
    3) At this point you should have the file downloaded on the PC and thus the confirmation that at least on part the problem is solved.
    4) On the phone (not on emulator, the installation fails there for completely other reasons) start the browser and navigate to the same URL
    5) At this point you should see the download in progress and then a prompt to initiate the installation.
    6) If the install fails you may need to make sure that the server associates the right MIME type with the sis file. There are many ways to figure out what is currently being sent and at least one (specific to your web server) to fix the problem.

    And in the case of SAP WAS, look up the SAP WAS documentation, or call SAP customer support, on how to configure it to send the correct MIME types.

    I've never seen or used SAP WAS (as far as I know), so I can't help you in configuring it properly.

    How did you get AppForge to generate the SIS, I can't get it to do this at all, or even to download an app to a real phone, it keeps saying there is an error.
