    Does RDir needs "AllFiles" capability for Symbian Signing

    Hi All

    I am using RDir to scan the Symbian Directories and was quiet successful in doing so but I have some questions which I hope will be answered through this form by Experts

    Question :-
    I have used RDir to scan the directories basically C:\\Data\\Images and Self Signed the application to check on couple of devices and it worked fine but what I am concerned is in the documentation of RDir its mentioned as it requires AllFiles Capabilty .

    The information on capabilities on this link:
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/plat...criptions.html
    states the following

    AllFiles
    Grants read-only access to all data caged directories and write access to /private –directory. NOTE! AllFiles will not be granted for a filemanager type of application.



    So What I want to know is if I submit my application for symbian signing will nokia fail the signing as I don’t have AllFiles capability

    Also is this possible that without AllFiles the scanning of C:\\Data\\Images directory will fail in some of the devices

    Looking forward for a response to this issues

    With Regards

    As you are not Accessing any Private Folders of Any other application. I donot think you will req. ALLFILES capability. There is no problem for you to pass the symbian Signing.

    In such cases you can believe to your experiences, and not to the documentation, which is often incorrect, especially when it writes about unconditional AllFiles capability-requirement of various classes.

    Thank you SKumar_Rao and Wizard_hu for ur prompt reply

    With ur reply I assume tht my applicatin will pass the signing process if I scan the C:\\Data\\Images with RDir

    and also it will scan the above directory on all the phones without having the AllFiles capabilty.

    With Regards
