    Problem with UID and expired symbian-signed account

    Hello!

    1. I have application with any UID and I had account on symbian-signed server.

    2. My account in symbian-signed expired.

    3. I created new account. In new account I create new UID. Old UID I cannot put to the server.

    Have I use old UID or new UID?
    Is there any problem, when I change UID and my program users reinstall?

    Thanks Petr

    if you change UID without changing file names, any installation to a device that has the old installation will fail with update error. And if you change also the file names, then new installation will not replace the old, and you could have two application installed in same device.

    Expired? Did you actually migrate it when Symbian Signed moved to Nokia?

    basically UIDs are account specific, thus you can only use UIDs requested by the same account that is used for signing. And if you change the Application UID, you should indeed change the file names as well. anyway, 2 years is long time, thus there might not be too many of the old version of the application floating around anymore.

    It is problem.
    We sold program in this two years and now I need repair error in the program. Users have old version of program.

    I contact nokia (symbian.signed@nokia.com?), if they can put old UID to my account...

    You can always try that, I would not know whether it is possible though.

    anyway, you could always have the application installed as a different instance, and simply ask the users to uninstall the old version, or even implement the uninstallation of the old version in your new application version, though do remember to ask users permission before uninstalling anyhitng.
