    Removing a previously installed PA


    I recently faced a problem regarding an non-standalone (PA) symbian signed application. I found that after using V1 of my app, if I try to install V2 "security reasons" prevent it from being installed and I cannot use it. I realized the UID stayed the same across version so that may be a problem.

    So except by having each version of an app bear a specific UID, is there a clean and safe way to instruct the system to either properly remove a PA before a new one is installed ? Or telling the system that this particular PA is actually an upgrade of a previously used one ?

    Best Regards,

    Different versions of an app should have the same UID, otherwise they're not considered to be the same app by the installer, ie. it's seen as a new app, and after installing it both the new and the old version will be installed on the system. So those "security reasons" must be caused by something else.

    also check for diffrent name of the applications.

    If you have changed the application name in package file this may also cause some problems.

    same issue i am facing ?
