    defining secureid without .exe

    I got some dll's/res I got in a .pkg, and I wish to install a backup_registration.xml with them.

    the pkg just has one .dll and one rsc.

    so, is there a pkg line to define secureid? or do i have to add a bogus exe, kludge kludge?

    Re: defining secureid without .exe - what about content backup?

    ok, so replying to myself.
    I created a dummy exe as a kludge to get around.


    but what about content sis packages that I want to flag for backup

    Re: defining secureid without .exe

    The problem is that a dll does not have a secureid, it uses the process's secureid.

    You need to specify the package id to be backed up to the backup server...

    From "How-To Write Backup-aware Software"
    An additional mechanism exists to specify backup registration files for data owners that do not have private directories - this is to be used for DLLs which are installed as part of a package. To use this method, the backup registration file must be placed in a special location under the Secure Backup Engine’s private directory:

    \private\10202D56\import\packages\<package-id>\backup_registration.xml
    (10202D56 is the SID of the Secure Backup Engine, and <package-id> should be replaced with the ID of the package containing the DLL)

    Note: As the data owner does not have a private directory, the only methods that are valid in this backup registration file are system and public file backup.
