    Smile [moved] making .csr file

    Actually I want to run my application on my device like N-73 and for that i have to sign my codes from DevCert. For that I had bought Publisher Id from verisign and we got that and installed succesfuly on the same machine from where request is made for Publication Id. After that we had Exported and Imported on another machine. But it is placed on internet explorer->tools->internet option->content->certificate. I want to make .csr for DevCert. But in second step I dont understand what to put in the space of:-
    1)Publisher Id file
    2)Private key file
    There is also an browse option on both field but it can help to fill these options.
    and without filling these options we cant move further.

    That's fine, although you don't always need a DevCert, I trust that you know what you're doing.

    Verising is no longer providing the Publisher IDs for Symbian Signed. The certification authority has been changed long time ago (as in many years ago) to be TC TrustCenter ( http://www.trustcenter.de/en/ ). Where have you found this info about using Verisign? Contact Symbian Signed through their support forum and ask whether they can help you still and whether they are able to accept that certificate. If they say no, you may need to by a new one.

    Actually it is placed in a certificate store file on the hard drive but indeed, that's where Internet Explorer lists the certificates it knows and lets the user to operate them.

    Step two of what? Could you indicate the guide you use as reference so that we talk about the same thing? Are you following this guide? I don't think so, since there step 2 seems to be buy certificate and you did that already, although from the wrong provider. Where is the browse option? Browse what?

    Actually sir I am using "DevCertRequest_2.3.exe" software for requesting for devcert to sign my codes. In this software we have to follow 5 steps. In first step I had just given the name of my application ".pfx" and in 2 nd step i have to provide "publisher id" and "key". now i am not able to cross this step. for this purpose I had downloaded one more software named "Vs_pkcs.zip". Even then i am not able to find the solution.

    But now you are saying that verisign's publisher Id will not be used here. then what should i do now. One of my friend has told me about verisign. Please tell me now, what should i do.

    Re: making .csr file

    Like I said, you don't have a valid Publisher ID, Verisign is not supported since some time back in 2007.

    Once a Publisher ID purchased, it has to be converted to a pair of certificates, known as the *.cer and *.key files, and these certificates will be later used whenever signing something with the Publisher ID is required. The tool with which you can perform this conversion, as well as guidance about how to use it, is available at Publisher ID (Symbian Signed).

    Once you have the Publisher ID certificate files, you can move on to using the DevCert request creation tool, where at step one you must provide the name (and location) for the file to be generated (yes, it's weird, but that's how the tool was done), so something like c:\Temp\myfirstdevcert.csr

    You can then continue with the next steps, where you will provide the two certificate files when prompted, and at the end you have the nice request file saved in ... c:\Temp\myfirstdevcert.csr

    Upload the c:\Temp\myfirstdevcert.csr file to Symbian Singed's site, provide the rest of the needed info, and you will eventualy obtain the Symbian Signed Offline certificate you need. Easy.

    I see that you have placed a query on Symbian Signe's forum, so wait for them to answer (probably not before Monday). Meanwhile, practice converting the *.pfx file into *.cer and *.key, you will need to learn to do that anyhow. Then once you have those files, create a *.csr file using the tool.

    The information is provided in the link that was suggested to you already sometime back when you had asked the same query of verisign and trustcenter and received similar answers.
    Here is the link again with step by step of how to get your developers certificate http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...er_certificate

    Re: [moved] making .csr file

    I think you have this the wrong way: you have uploaded the *.csr file and got back the *.cer

    Now, with the *.cer file received from Symbian Signed and with the *.key file you have from the Publisher ID conversion, you are ready to sign applications and install them on device. Whenever you see a reference to Developer Certificate (or DevCert) that's where you use the downloaded *.cer and the *.key file. Whenever you are told to use the Publisher ID, use the converted *.cer and the *.key file.

    To sign a sis file, you use Carbide.c++, Qt Creator or signsis.exe

    Code:
    signsis.exe unsigned.sis signed.sis cert.cer cert.key

    I had gone through link provided by you.....I had done with all the things except this last step. And this the question which i had hust asked.
    I am not getting this step.


    Step 6 - Take the developer certificate into use Use the developer certificate (.cer file) when signing your SIS file with either the MakeSIS tool for Symbian OS pre-9.0 SIS files or SignSIS and CreateSIS for Symbian OS 9.x forward SIS files.
