    On the phone, in the App manager -> Settings, check that Software Installion is set to "All".

    Also note that if it is a GUI application,
    Code:
    UID 0x100039CE 0xA000018B
    would be a better choice.

    Re: Signing and certification

    Then your application does not have a capability that it needs. Check S60 documentation on capabilities. If you need advanced capabilities you also need to assign the UID from what is called the protected range and use Developer Certificates from Symbiansigned to convince the phone to install your app..

    Re: Signing and certification

    Hello,

    I got what u are saying..
    I have seen that document and got the capabilities list needed for that app.
    I am trying to install on E70 3rd generation phone..

    The capapbilities are:

    NetworkServices
    ReadUserData
    WriteUserData
    WriteDeviceData
    ReadDeviceData

    I want to know there is any other way other than signing the application to get the above capabilities.

    Because my application is in still development phase. When it developed completely only i can send it for testing and get the certification.

    Thanks in advance,
    Muralidhar.

    Re: Signing and certification

    DevCert are free and the procedure to get one is straighforward. This is all explained on symbian signed.
    The basic devcert is valid for 6months and work only for one IMEI.

    I have got one. My only problem is that it doesn:t work on my phone. But it should work on yours as you have already been able to install self-signed apps.

    Here the link to my post describing the problem I have with my phone. Any help welcome.

    Re: Signing and certification

    I got some DevCertRequest_13_09_2006_v1.9.exe from symbian site ans installed in my system and created .cer and .key files for my app.

    i have done makesis Messaging_gcce.pkg
    and it created me a sis file Messaging_gcce.SIS.

    I generated .key and .cer from that tool provided by symbian and copyed into my app sis directory..
    When i am trying to sign this sis file like this
    signsis Messaging_gcce.SIS Messaging_gcce_sign.SIS Messaging.cer Messaging.key password

    then it is giving me error like this

    encryption error, Cannot read Messaging.cer.

    Please help in this..

    Thanks & regards,
    Muralidhar

    Re: Signing and certification

    You need to "import" the certificates and keys into Carbide.vs using the Manage Certificates tool (found in the VS Tools menu). Once you have imported the certificate, you can then set it as the default for the project in the Carbide.vs Properties for a given project. The default certificate will then always be used when building that project.

    This is all in the online Help, for instance a search using the VS Help search with the keywords "carbide certificate" gives the correct page as the second hit on the list, much faster than trying to guess how it works :-).

    Re: Signing and certification

    signsis should work.

    I just wonder how you generated you certificate.

    The way I did it is:

    1) run DevCertReq tool. Supply your IMEI.
    This will generate two files:
    ____.csr
    ____.key

    2) you then need to go on the symbian signed website.
    login
    and upload you _____.csr file.
    Thereafter you can download your _.cer files.

    Then, when you use signsis, you should supplied the ___.cer (downloaded from symbian) and the ____.key generated by the DevCertReq tool.

    you can find more detail information on the symbian website
