    about uid

    I get a uid from symbian.
    I changed my .mmp file and .pkg file with the uid.
    But I don't confirm my change is right.

    My mmp file and pkg file is below. Please see it and tell me whethe the uid is right. Do I need to change other file.

    mmp file

    TARGET Light.app
    UID 0x100039CE(it is created by vc6) 0x102050EF (This uid is come from symbian, it replace the old one wich is created by vc6)
    TARGETPATH \system\apps\light

    pkg file
    ; Light.pkg
    ;Language - standard language definitions
    ;Standard SIS file header

    ;Supports Series 60 v 2.0
    (0x101F7960), 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}

    In .mmp file you should have this:

    UID 0x100039CE 0x102050E

    and don't forget to change the UID also in aif/yourapplicationaif.rss and inc/YouapplicationApp.h...

    I have find another uid value

    I have find another uid value at C:\Symbian\7.0s\Series60_v20\Series60Ex\Light\group\LIGHT.UID.CPP

    The info below:
    // Makmake-generated uid source file
    #include <E32STD.H>
    #pragma data_seg(".E32_UID")
    #pragma data_seg()

    but the mmp file is
    TARGET Light.app
    UID 0x100039CE 0x102050EF
    TARGETPATH \system\apps\light

    Does 0x0be4e108 at Light.uid.cpp is error?

    Each released Symbian platform application needs to have at least one Unique Identification (UID) number assigned to it. This UID is then written to each file created by that application to associate the files with that application. This guarantees that the correct application is used when the file is opened (the Symbian platform does not use ambiguous file extensions for this purpose like other systems).

    For full details on UIDs, refer to the Unique Identifiers chapter in the C++ Software Development Kit Documentation.

    To ensure that each UID is genuinely unique, the Symbian Developer Network allocates UIDs from a centrally administrated database.

    Note: If you want a few UIDs just for development, you can use numbers in the range 0x00000001 - 0x0FFFFFFF. UIDs in this range are for development only and should not appear in any released products. If you do use any development UIDs, ensure that they are replaced by registered values as soon as you decide that they will appear in a final product.

    Ordering UIDs
    Please email uid@symbiandevnet.com with the subject 'UID Request'. Also ensure that you submit the following information:

    Your name or program name (whichever you prefer)
    Your Email address
    How many UIDs you require. You will be assigned a range of ten UIDs. If you require more then please give your reason for requiring more.
    Failure to send any of the required information will cause delay to the process.

    btw, LIGHT.UID.CPP is most probably generated so it has no sense to change anything in it...
