    Using $ in PKG for file installation location does not work in Symbian Signed

    ...we are working on a solution. But, please don't hold you breath while waiting, it is bit of a time consuming operation.

    In case you are wondering what I mean... In some cases it is important to install the application to the system drive. The $ does that automatically. For example:
    "..\..\..\epoc32\release\gcce\urel\HelloWorldBasic.exe" -"$:\sys\bin\HelloWorldBasic.exe"
    There the HelloWorldBasic.exe would go to the sys bin folder of the system drive.

    As a work around, please hard code the installation to c-drive. For example:
    "..\..\..\epoc32\release\gcce\urel\HelloWorldBasic.exe" -"c:\sys\bin\HelloWorldBasic.exe"

    Fortunately it should not be a very common requirement to install materials to the system drive (?).

    I would assume that most developers simply use c:\.

    Using $ should be ok again; we got report that the original problem should have been fixed.
