    Lightbulb SIS file!!! once installed, than cannot be installed again

    Hi....seniors!!

    Is there any method, so that once any SIS file installed, it cannot be installed again by any other OR it cannot be sent via any medium like infrared,bluetooth, or even data cable!! (so that It can be only downloaded from dealer) I want such locking system

    Can anyone help me regarding this??

    Regards,
    Symbee

    Re: SIS file!!! once installed, than cannot be installed again

    Hi Symbee,
    Im not sure whether im the right person to comment on this.Anyways, the answer i would put up is NO! As the symbian installation file is a single file that contains the components needed to get a piece of software installed and ready to run. and more over if at all your goal is to prevent your application to be installed twice, you can write some keywords onto a safe folder, say /Data and check for the same keyword when the application is been installed next time.(for this you need to run a .exe)if the key word already exists you should abort the installation!! :-D

    anyways,lets see whether any of others got any prompt ideas on this!

    Hi Priju..

    Even I am still confused with this.. I m using 2nd SDK n so there is app file instead of exe file! (and even I have an idea to check every time with IMEI number previously setted.) Better some nokia champions help me if they have any idea regarding my question!!

    regards

    Re: SIS file!!! once installed, than cannot be installed again

    I don't know is there any specific APIs for this purpose, but I can give youo some ideas which is coming into my mind:

    1. Create a background process, which will listen your application folder for any access.

    2. Create one exe and keep it in your package. That exe would start immediately after the installation and check whether your application existing in the device (Check the FILERUN, RUNWAITEND options with the package file). If existing, don’t proceed with further installation. (You may use the Condition blocks for that purpose). But any way check the Installation guide of the SDK help thoroughly, I hope definitely you’ll get an answer.

    I hope the second method would be feasible.

    I think u havn't understand my question!! I dont want to install the application on same mobile.Whether application is installed or not, it won't allow to install application. Only one will have to download it from dealer!

    I think you may use DRM protection to limit the access. I'm not much more aware of this. May be this link may help you out: Nokia Mobile Internet Toolkit 4.1.

    There is no easy/simple solution. You could look into the sw licensing/DRM solutions for Symbian apps by companies like Openbit and Psiloc.
