    Self Signed SIS won't Install

    HI All ,

    I self signed a very simple SIS that only installs a .txt file to C:\Data\ on the device.

    Now when I try to install it on a E71 and N85 I get the message :
    "Unable to install unsigned software , Check Software Installation setting ..."

    Changing Settings>Applications>App.Managers>Software Installation to ALL, fixes the problem .

    I would like to know if there is any way to sign such a simple SIS to avoid changing that setting on every device and without having to go to a test house or use a IMEI dependend developement certificate.

    Thanks a Lot!!

    Is it unsigned or self-signed?
    Note that makesis does not sign anything.
    For self-signing you have to makekeys and signsis (check the bottom part of http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...gn_Certificate for command-line example).

    @Wizard : Note that he could 'fix' his problem by changing the software installations settings to all. So he has self-signed it.

    @pratorob: if self-signed, this is needed. if you are planning to release without 'proper' signing(anything dependent on IMEI or symbian signing) then changing device settings cannot be escaped.

    HI wizard_hu_,

    thanks for your very quick reply , the installer it is actually Self Signed .
    I mean that the SIS is signed using SignSis and a certificate generated usigng Makekeys in the same way it is described in that link you posted.
