SDK AddOn - Developer licence problems -wrong digital signature issues



SAP 2004A

SQL Server 2000

Visual Basic 6.0


I have a issue with porting an AddOn to a machine(to a development machine under development licence). I did this correctly as far as SAP documentations (from the DI and UI help) and licencing model docs say.

I get a "wrong digital signature for addon installer" message when trying to register the addon.

I installed on the machine with sdk licening. I cannot even register the addon on my machine, where I developed this. (I can of course run on debug mode - Visual Basic 6.0)

Any help is greatly appreciated,

    Hello Indika,

    when the registration file (*.ard) is being created by AddOnRegDataGen.exe, you are asked to browse for the Add-on Exe Full Path

    when the generator creates the ARD file, the exe file that was indicated is being digital signatured

    in case the exe file was changed (recompile), it is actually a new file, that has to be digital signatured again

    therefore, whenever you have a new exe file, you have to generate a new ARD file

    Regards, Avi.

    • Hi,

      please note that AddOnRegDatGen is batch capable!!!

      Here you go:

      Calling convention (cmdline parameters):

      AddOnRegDataGen.exe <raw xml> <InstallerVersion> <Installer> <Uninstaller> <Add-On-Exe>


      AddOnRegDataGen.exe MySampleAddOn.xml 1.0 SampleSetup.exe SampleSetup.exe MySampleAddOn.exe

      The „<raw xml>“:

      <AddOnInfo partnernmsp="<Your Namespace>" contdata="my cont data" addonname="My Add-On" addongroup="M" esttime="300" instparams="" uncmdarg="" partnername="My Comp" />
