    Smart Installer 101: How do you create a wrapped .sis file?

    Hello,

    I've built and tested a Qt app for Symbian^3 and I have my Ovi store UIDs, certificate file and key file.

    What files, precisely, must I create and submit for my App? The publisher guide, dated 12/10/2010, says to use signsis.exe. The instructions at http://doc.qt.nokia.com/smart-instal...r-signing.html says to build a "wrapped" .sis file for submission, but makes no mention of signsis.exe. The next page, http://doc.qt.nokia.com/smart-instal...vi-signed.html, says to make an application.sis file and an application_installer.sis and submit both.

    I followed the web instructions, which say to thoroughly test the files created from these steps before submission. However neither the resulting application.sis or application_installer.sis files install on my N8. Do I need to submit both of these files? Where do .pkg files come into play, if at all?

    What do I need to create for Ovi store submission and how do I create it?

    Please Help!

    Phil

    Re: Smart Installer 101: How do you create a wrapped .sis file?

    The links in your post are broken, have you copied them from another post? If so, copy them as links/shortcuts and not as text.

    The latest version of the docs is at http://doc.qt.nokia.com/smart-installer/index.html and the more hands on parts are:
    a) checklist and build
    b) make and sign the installer

    As you can see in b) you are supposed to be calling make sis and make installer_sis, which is Qt's way of calling the sequence of makesis.exe and signsis.exe tools. You can find more about this commands, additional parameters and options in the Qt docs. Also, Qt Creator 2.1 (from Qt SDK 1.1 beta) allows creation and signing of smart installer packages from the IDE itself.

    If you are using valid Ovi provided developer certificates for signing (QT_SIS_CERTIFICATE and QT_SIS_KEY parameters) the SIS files are installable on your test device. As long as you have Qt already installed or the packages to be fetched are supported (Qt 4.6.x yes, Qt 4.7.x not so much) then Smart Installer will work. If you're having problems, see http://nokia.ly/SmartInstaller for debugging details.

    The links you specify are the pages to which I was referring (sorry about the broken links). I've repeated the steps a few times and was not successful. I've since found (and was also directed to) this and this. Specifically, it states that you must open the .pkg file and edit it. This differs from the instructions you reference.

    Trust me, you need not do such things. The PKG files are generated by qmake, therefore if any editing is to be done, it must be done in the *.pro file, by specifying the UIDs as exemplified in http://doc.qt.nokia.com/smart-instal...endencies.html

    Things are evolving, what was valid when a blog post was written may not be valid 5 minutes later. That of course if it was ever valid to begin with.

    Lucian, I will scrutinize the steps even more closely and debug as needed. Thank you.

    Thank you Nayan also.
