    Signsis with PublisherID

    Hi All,

    I need to know whether I can install a Symbian C++ application on to a device, when the .SIS file has been signed with a PublisherID (certificate and private key) ?, I know that this is possible, if, the .SIS file has been signed with a developer certificate or has been self signed. Is signing the .SIS file with the PublisherID only to be used for Symbian signing process. Please enlighten.

    Regards,

    Shanker

    Of course, you can install your application which has been signed with developer certificate and uses Publisher ID.

    Just to add to Kiran, remember though that the developer certificate should include the IMEI of the device[/s] which you plan to install the application on!

    The question here is whether the root certificate against which the PublisherID certificate must be checked is installed on the phone and thus, if the PublisherID itself can be used as a "developer certificate". The answer is NO.
