    How to pack two sis files inside single installable file?

    hi all,

    Is there any way to pack two sis files inside single installable file? I will install that single installable file and it will further install the two sis files?

    is it possible?Any useful links?


    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, it is possible. Read the documentation.
    "Symbian OS vx.y » Symbian OS Tools And Utilities » Software Installation Toolkit - reference » Package file format" in the SDK Help

    Re: How to pack two sis files inside single installable file?

    Hi all,

    1) I create two applications Installable1 and Installable2 which are simple basic Hello World Aplications.

    2) I build 2 separate sis files for two applications namely installable1.sis and installable2.sis

    3) In installable2.pkg i copied following code(Found in SDK Help)-

    IF NOT package(0xE44EBE97)
    ; install Installable1.sis only if not already installed
    @"Installable1.sis", (0xE44EBE97)
    endif


    4) I also copied Installable1.sis to sis folder of application Installable2.

    5) Now i rebuild application Installable2 and make sis file for it.

    6) I tried to run the application Installable2 on device but it is giving
    following error while installation-

    Certificate Error.Contact the application supplier.

    Expected result- I expect application Installable2 would install and
    Installable1 will also install.

    Is there any wrong i did?

    Thanks in advance.

    When embedding sis files you must ensure that they are signed/certified first.

    It does not matter which signing procedure you chose as long as it is valid for the signed content. But the embedded sis files must be signed first and only then you make the wrapper package and sign that one too.

    Re: How to pack two sis files inside single installable file?

    hi all,

    As mentioned in my previous reply,i created a sample application and it is working on device.

    1. Now i have two applications
    a)Application 1 in which i am including path and UID of second
    application and actually installing this sis on device.
    b)Application 2 which is running in background and auto started.

    2. I build a sis file using the code used in my sample application.My sis
    is getting installed on device and both applications are installed.

    3. Problem is when i switch off and switch on the phone again,my
    background and auto started application is not starting automatically.

    What may be the problem? How to resolve this problem?


    Thanks in advance.

    Rohanwaugh.

    There is no information in your post about how your application registers itself for autostart. If you read Startup List Management API's docs you will see that there are restrictions with regards to registering for autostart embedded applications.

    See more discussions on this topic here, on this forum. The problem has been fixed several times.
