    5th Edition Device: "Unable to install" error for DLL

    I'm trying to install a dll on a Nokia 5800, that installs fine on a 3.1 device.
    It almost completes the install process, but then fails with the following error: "Unable to install"

    I'm using Open Signing, to sign the sis file.
    The contents of the package file follows.
    I'm wondering if the target directory has changed or something.
    I'm using a reserved phone from Nokia's Remote Device Access service (http://apu.ndhub.net/devices).

    ;Language - standard language definitions
    ; standard SIS file header
    ;Localised Vendor name
    ;Unique Vendor name
    ;Supports Series 60 v 3.1
    ; [0x102032BE], 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}
    ;Supports Series 60 v 5
    [0x1028315F], 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}
    ;Files to install
    ;You should change the source paths to match that of your environment
    ;<source> <destination>
    "$(EPOCROOT)Epoc32\release\$(PLATFORM)\$(TARGET)\XMemManager.dll"		-"!:\sys\bin\XMemManager.dll"
    ; Add any installation notes if applicable
    ;"xunitTester.txt"		-"!:\private\0xA000C227\xunitTester.txt"
    ;required for application to be covered by backup/restore facility 
    "..\sis\backup_registration.xml"		-"!:\private\0xA000C227\backup_registration.xml"

    Re: 5th Edition Device: "Unable to install" error for DLL

    The DLLs don't have private directories, they could be loaded by many different processes and thus the security of the directory would be compromised.

    Therefore your problem is that you are trying to install the backup registration file in an invalid/forbidden location.

    You should install the file in

    which means

    If needed you can find more information in the SDK or at http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...of_add-on_DLLs
