    Re: UPdate Error! while installation

    Hi Wizard,

    I don't think you can update an installation that is "differently signed". i.e. you can't replace a Symbian signed install with a developer signed one. I am not sure if it works the other way round.

    You could try stripping the certificate off and then open signing the original. I expect you would be able to update it with your new sis then.

    Sadly, I can't remember where I read this so maybe someone can chip in with a reference (or correct me).

    FYI - another reason for getting the "Update error" is changing the globally unique vendor id in the .pkg file:



    :"VendorX Inc."

    Trying to install 2nd app on a device that has 1st app installed, will yield the "Update error".
