    File I/O fault usualyy comes when the specified path in.pkg is not found.

    Are you able to crate a unsigned sis file successfully.

    sis file is not getting generated that means something from your .pkg file is not available in the path mentioned.

    Look for line number which hav eerror of file I/O fault.

    How you are creating your sis file?

    Re: How to create a .sis file and how to signed it by developer

    I have been able to create a certificate and a key and sign the Cenrep101F8809.sis file,
    and then send to the Nokia E63 using Nokia PC suite via Bluetooth.

    An error message appears: certifcate error. contact the application providers (or developers).

    I didn't include CO, OU or EM in the distinguished name-string parameter.
    I specified the number of days as 7300.

    I copied the .cer and .key files to folder on the phone, but I don't know
    (a) if it's necessary;
    (b) how to access them on the phone;
    (c) what to do with them now that they are on the phone.

    What else should be done?

    Thanks.

    Ray

    Those "I <something>"-s suggest that you have created a self-signed certificate. Central repository extensions can not be installed with self-signing, because the package UID is from the protected range. In fact the API is not considered to be open on S60, just it is possible to reconstruct it from the Symbian Signed site and the Symbian Foundation site.

    The input and output file can not be the same. Try signsis LiveTV.sis LiveTV.sisx WorldCert.cer WorldKey.key World123 for example.
