    About the smart installer "Installation failed!"

    for example, My application is called first, it needs qt mobility library. I add "installer_sis" to the Qt creater make argument.

    The first time, I build the application, first.sis is created. the second time I build it, first_installer.sis is created. I think the first_installer.sis contain the smartinstaller.sis.

    I install first_installer.sis, the installation is successful(it will verify the depended component, and install the QT mobility library).

    then I Install the first_installer.sis again. but it failed. the message is "Installation failed!", I check the document, it says "Unrecoverable installation failure has occurred. Installation can be resumed later by selecting the Smart Installer icon from the Application menu."

    why this fail? I think it should be successful.

    Yes. with QT creator, the application will be automatically self-signed.
    If the QT mobility is already installed, then I only install the first.sis, it will successful. If I install first_installer.sis, it will fail.

    Hi,

    Every SIS file must be signed with a certificate. The Qt SDK will do this signing automatically. Such SIS files are not trusted by devices and will display a warning message during installation. These apps can have one or more of the following capabilities: LocalServices, ReadUserData, WriteUserData, NetworkServices, UserEnvironment, and Location. Users are prompted to allow usage of the capabilities in the application installation time. This form of packaging and signing can be used when mobile users share the apps with other users or through their own websites.

    From this link : http://www.forum.nokia.com/Distribut...tml#article1_a

    Best regards,

    Ya, At that time it will reflect the error code - 11.
    Because you have already installed that sis file.

    No. here is a smart installer example
    http://pepper.troll.no/s60prerelease...aller_v018.sis

    you can install it many times, and every time it will search the depended component. if do not existed, it will download it from the ovi

    I'm guessing it's because something's broken. But I haven't a clue what. I've not seen the behavior you describe.

    Well, maybe I have. Did you change the UID of your application? If you install an application with UID X and then attempt to reinstall essentially the same application, only with UID Y, you'll get the -11. When you change UIDs you need to manually uninstall the old version of the application.

    Re: About the smart installer "Installation failed!"

    How about your signature? Did you do something that might have caused a new self-signed certificate to be created?

    Re: About the smart installer "Installation failed!"

    Try building from the command line(Qt creator SDK in start menu->symbian->command prompt, then navigate to your app dir with the .pro file:
    Code:
    qmake
    make clean
    make release-gcce
    make sis
    make installer_sis
    In my experience, omitting the clean step can have unexpected results...
    Good luck!
