    Unhappy Backup/Restore Failure in App Manager

    I am having problems with the re-installation of my theme files. I am currently packaging & testing my theme files using the Open Signed Online service on the Symbian Signed website.

    The theme installs perfectly (onto memory card), but when I come to use the backup/restore facility found in Nokia's PC Suite, it removes the installed file from the application manager. This means that the theme cannot be uninstalled without a hard reset. When restoring the the phone's (N73) contents, I ensure that the phone & card are formatted to guarantee a clean backup.

    I have used information found in the knowledgebase to rectify the problem. I have applied this info to my latest signing and it works to a degree. I can now install the theme onto my memory card, then remove the memory card and hard reset the phone memory (*#7370#), then install the memory card again, where it installs the theme back into the app manager. That's great, but it does not solve the problem of the PC Suite backup/restore facility (content copier). If anyone can shed some light on this issue I would be wholly appreciative!

    Here's my .pkg file info & backup_registration.xml which is packaged with my theme file:

    ******.pkg file******

    ; File created with SkinCompiler v0.0.82
