    I did recompile , recreate the ard file and paste the new exe file in the Add-on directory and now is giving me and now is giving me " Failed to write SARI table".

    This is what I'm doing :

    1. Test the Add-on ( Run Perfect on SBO )

    2. Make an exe file -> UISIMPLE.EXE

    3. Create an Installation Package using Pacjage & Deployment Wizard Visual Studios 6.0

    4. Create an ard file using the AddOnRegDataGen.exe instaled on C:\Programs File\SAP\SAP MANAGE\...\

    5. Within SAP Register the Add-on and then it gives me the error mentione above and before

    Im saving all this files on the same folder , and every time I recompile I create a new ard file

    Am I doing something wrong??

    Pls Help ! I'm newbie on SDK

    Hi,

    How do you made the deploiment of your AddOn?

    Are you made an upgrade of this?

    The problem with the signature is because the information in the ard file for the registration it is not of the oexe file of your AddOn.

    Best regards.

    When you create your .ard file, make sure the .exe you created it from is the same .exe placed into your add-on directory in the SAP Business One folder.

    When recompiling add-ons, I always create the .ard file, then copy and paste the new version of the .exe into the add-on directory for SAP.

    If that doesn't work, recompile, re-create the .ard file and place the new .exe into your add-on directory.

    • You are right Curtis, the .ard file contains a digital signature of the addon exe. So evertime we recompile the addon exe it will not correspond with the old ard.

      We must regenerate the .ard file everytime we recompile the addon or everytime we recompile the installer for the addon (also pointed by the .ard file).

      Regards
