When updating an existing application or component on S60 3rd Edition, the vendor information within the new SIS package must be identical to the currently installed package.

Vendor information is specified by two mandatory strings in the .pkg file:

; localized vendor name(s) (corresponding to language),
; displayed during installation
%{"Vendor-EN", ...}
; non-localized (global) vendor name
:{"Unique Vendor"}

Specifically, the non-localized vendor string in the updated package must match the vendor of the package currently installed in the device.

This, in combination with signing, prevents the unauthorized upgrade of a package by someone other than the rightful vendor. If vendor strings do not match between the old and new packages, the installation will fail with an "Update error"


See detailed description.
