    What is the error saying ?
    What is the UID for the application ?
    What capabilities you have defined in mmp file ?

    Also do check from the inatllation settings that installing all is set on with the device..

    Can you answer all of the questions, you missed the capabilities one ?

    Also id the error message just "Unable install", or is there any additional words in that note ?
    Also in which part of the installation does it show ? (is there anything asked before etc.)
    Did you check the application manager installation settings ?

    Are you sure that you trying to install Phone Release(or Debug) build configuration of your project?

    Try to switch active configuration and build project again:

    1. Right Click on project folder > Build Configurations > Set Active > Phone Release (GCCE)
    2. Right Click on project folder > Build Project

    You have not answered on this question:
    What capabilities you have defined in your .mmp file?

    OK! Thanks for your answer. Because I'm a newbie in this. That the reason i can't understand all your question. I haven't know what capabilities you want to know in .mmp file. But i can say you as:
    This application, i have used HierarchicalColumnList sample from SDK resource and then add more component to test.

    you should indeed read some getting started manuals and basics on the platform security then, anyway capabilities are defined in mmp file with CAPABILITY keyword.

    Yes. Thank you so much. I'll read more before continua. And this is the CAPABILITY define from .mmp file: "CAPABILITY NONE"
    by the way. When i swich to active configuration and build project again: i have error from Carbide.C++: "CBase' is an ambiguous base of `CHierarchicalColumnListAppView" on this line code "CleanupStack::PushL( self );"

    Re: How can i create a .SIS file for N97 Device?

    I just started to create a simple app for N97 and having the same problem too.

    I have the sis file signed using OPDA cert (the cert and key are for other downloaded unsigned sis files).

    This is what happened, the instalation started ok, giving the warning that "this is for development use bla bla.." then it shows the Installation Progress bar. When the progress bar reached half way, it stopped for few second and give the error "Unable to install".

    Appreciate if any body can point out what is the problem here.

    Thank you.

    Can you show your .pkg file?
    Do you also get any additional text along with "Unable to install"?

    Here is the content of pkg file:

    --- start content, removed commented lines before this.
    ; UID is the exe's UID
    ;
    #{"BasicTimer EXE"},(0xECACC892),1,0,0


    ;Localised Vendor name
    %{"Vendor-EN"}

    ;Unique Vendor name
    :"Vendor"

    "$(EPOCROOT)Epoc32\release\$(PLATFORM)\$(TARGET)\BasicTimer.exe" -"!:\sys\bin\BasicTimer.exe"

    ---end pkg file

    I also noticed that it give the error "Application not compatible with phone. Continue anyway?" message prompt. I wonder why this is coming out, I am using S60 N97 SDK.

    After that prompt it give the Storage selection, then the progress bar, then the error. No other text with the error. BTW this is a console application. Do I need to have any extra steps taking care of the console library or what not?

    Thank for the prompt reply!.

    Add following line to avoid message "Application not compatible..."
    Code:
    ;Supports S60 5th Edition
    [0x1028315F], 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}

    Make sure that you build your project with "Phone Release (GCCE)" configuration.

    Re: How can i create a .SIS file for N97 Device?

    The message comes because you have not specified that your application is compatible with your device. Check the "Series60ProductId" line in the .pkg files of SDK examples - like A.A.M. shows.
    Otherwise installing the .exe is not enough, you probably want something like this: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ons_on_Devices
