    my 1st SIS for 3rd edition is not SISX?

    FINALLY!!!

    I found the OPENSSL.EXE under my c:\xampp\openssl\bin directory. wondering why its not at c:\program files\stunnel directory. anyway, my ENSYMBLE run flawless !!!

    Some question raise again:
    1. Why it has only 21kb size?
    2. How to use PKG like what py2sis.exe did?
    3. Why it has SIS extension, im expecting SISX

    Please enlighten me again. Im HOT now.

    Hi rsf,

    Some question raise again:
    1. Why it has only 21kb size?
    You mean the sis(x) or OPENSSL.EXE? How big is your original Python script? Can you install it on your phone?


    2. How to use PKG like what py2sis.exe did?
    You can still use the normal py2sis. It is shipped with PyS60


    3. Why it has SIS extension, im expecting SISX
    A signed installation package can have a .SIS extension as well. You should be able to give the final name

    Stunnel installer does not include OpenSSL, it's packaged separately. You found a copy of OpenSSL library as installed by XAMPP. That's OK, if it works. Ensymble is not too picky about the version of OpenSSL, it contains several workarounds for different versions of OpenSSL...

    1. An empty Python script will yield a SIS file of about 7.4 kB. What's in there is the Python loader EXE stub, a default icon, certificates and several resource files as required by Symbian OS.

    2. Why would you need to do that? Ensymble does not use MakeSIS to generate the SIS file. Instead it generates it directly, so there is no PKG file.

    3. I read somewhere that Symbian recommends the .sis suffix for SISX files as well.

    I hope not. Use .sisx for signed Symbian 9 installation files, because you need (at least for S60 based phones) to define a different MIME type than for pre-Symbian 9 .sis files.

    I understand that serving SIS files on web pages benefit from the distinction between old and new SIS file types, but everywhere in Symbian OS documentation the suffix .sis is used. For example, see this snippet on how Symbian OS v9 phones recognize files arriving on the Inbox (or rather, whenever the ECOM data recognizer plugins are consulted):

    As Symbian invented the new .sis file format for Symbian 9 and the .sisx extension for signed new .sis files, they should fix their documentation, too.

    It'd been better if they'd not used the .sis extension at all for Symbian 9 and later (much user/consumer confusion, as well as a lot of developer confusion would have been avoided). It they also had registered a proper MIME type for the new file format, that'd been good too.

    I'm sure they had their own logic for doing what they did, but it wasn't too well thought out, IMO.
