    Error signing sis file using signsis

    I tried to sign a .sis file using command
    signsis.exe test.sis test_signed.sis mycert.cer mykey.key key123
    error = test.sis is not a sis file .

    what could be the problem, any suggestion . I had generated key and cert files using "makekeys". I followed the link

    Here is how I did it and it worked for me:

    1)Generated key and cert:
    Code:
    makekeys -cert -password 12345 -len 1024 -dname "CN=World User OU=Development OR=WorldCompany CO=FI EM=World@test.com" WorldKey.key WorldCert.cer
    2)Signed it:
    Code:
    signsis HelloWorld.sis HelloWorld2.sis WorldCert.cer WorldKey.key 12345
    That's the exact code I used.

    What did you use to make your test.sis file a sis from a py script? Because if you used Ensymble, there's not necessarily any need to sign it this way as Ensymble generates its own (although insecure) certificates and signs apps automatically.

    no lick, I tried every possible thing. Even renamed the files to match with those given on site[its silly but ...]. same error came again, cant understand the reason behind this. I tried other sis files as well, same error with them too.

    Re: Error signing sis file using signsis

    ok here is the final verdict. i successfully signed the application that had a protected uid, but during installation it reports "File Corrupt!". So i tried installing the app with unprotected uid and i succeeded. And now the problem is that when after installation when i tried using it, it wont start and die after showing a blank screen.

    So i went to this site http://www.whythefuckwontmysisfileinstall.com/debug.php and submitted my file and got the following output. I had never heard of SID's before so i tried googling about it. But i couldnt get much. All i could get abt them is that they have to be specified in MMP file. How do i do that ?

    Code:
    Warning: Package UID is also used as a SID!
    
    One (or more!) of the executables this package contains has the same Secure ID as the package UID. While technically allowed, and commonly done this is a stylistic mistake. The package UID and executables Secure IDs are different things. A SIS file only has one package UID, but may have several executables, each with a unique SID.
    
    The offending executables are:
    
        * !:\sys\bin\BTRemote_0xa000764d.exe
    what do i do now ?? The problem seems to be only with the third ed phones. I installed the same app on 2nd ed and it worked.

    Does any other application with the same UID exist on the device?
    May be the problem is that it is using an used UID.
