    problem with .sis creation

    hi,
    we are attempting to create a .sis file using carbide c++ v2.0 n our emulator version is: s60 3rd edition fp1. on installing the .sisx file on the cellphone (n73) we get the error 'unable to install'. we've checked the .pkg files several times using other threads as reference.

    we also tried using another cellphone (n81) which is listed under the compatible phones for 3rd edition fp1. yet the same problem persists.

    what could be the problem? has it got anything to do with the ide? pls help!
    thanks!

    this is the MyApp.pkg file:

    Code:
    ;MyApp.pkg
    ;
    ;Language - standard language definitions
    &EN
    
    ; standard SIS file header
    #{"MyApp"},(0xE4FED875),1,0,0
    
    ;Localised Vendor name
    %{"Vendor-EN"}
    
    ;Unique Vendor name
    :"Vendor"
    
    ;Supports Series 60 v 3.0
    [0x101F7961], 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}
    
    ;Files to install
    ;You should change the source paths to match that of your environment
    ;<source> <destination>
    "$(EPOCROOT)\Epoc32\release\armv5\udeb\MyApp.exe"		-"!:\sys\bin\MyApp.exe"
    "$(EPOCROOT)\Epoc32\data\z\resource\apps\MyApp.r01"		-"!:\resource\apps\MyApp.r01"
    "$(EPOCROOT)\Epoc32\data\z\private\10003a3f\apps\MyApp_reg.r01"	-"!:\private\10003a3f\import\apps\MyApp_reg.r01"
    "$(EPOCROOT)\epoc32\data\z\resource\apps\MyApp_aif.mif" -"!:\resource\apps\MyApp_aif.mif"

    The error Unable to install occurs when you try to violate data caging concept, i.e. try to access other application's private folder. but your .pkg looks ok (hope you shown whole .pkg) to me.

    Is the error message is only Unable to install or have some more text?? Like Unable to install a protected application from an untrusted supplier ??? or Unable to install. Constrained by the certificate.

    Is the highlighted part above intentional? Do you have RVCT compiler?

    Anyways search for "Unable to install" here on this blog; people have reported many good reasons to probe into and see if anyone applies in your case. http://blogs.forum.nokia.com/index.p...7&articleId=93
