failure 881 application author does not match debug token author

Hi,

 

I can't manage to launch my Android app from Eclipse to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

 

Error:

Re: failure 881 application author does not match debug token author

Also, "author" contains a special character: "é".

Removing the special character from the author fixed the issue.

Re: failure 881 application author does not match debug token author

I have this problem as well.

The developer mode Debug Token on my Blackberry tablet  lists Author as "Atomic Roderick Digital Art" and I have a bar-descriptor.xml file that lists author as "Atomic Roderick Digiatl Art".

 

These are the two files being compared, correct?

 

MY BAR_DESCRIPTOR>XML file:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<qnx>
   <initialWindow>
      <systemChrome>none</systemChrome>
      <transparent>false</transparent>      
   </initialWindow>

   <!--  Name of author which is used for signing.
         Must match the developer name of your development certificate -->
   <author>Atomic Roderick Digital Art</author>
   <!--  Unique author ID assigned by signing authority. Required if using debug tokens -->
   <!-- <authorId><AUTOR ID NUMBER FROM MY MANIFEST.mf FILE FROM THE DEBUG TOKEN></authorId> -->
   <!--  The category where the application appear. Either core.games or core.media-->
   <category>core.games</category>
   <!--  The icon for the application which should be 86x86 -->

   <icon>
      <image>bitsNbone86.png</image>
   </icon>

   <!--  The splashscreen that will appear when your application is launching. Should be 1024x600. -->
   <splashscreen>splash.png</splashscreen>
   <!--  The permissions requested by your application. -->
   <!--  <permission>access_shared</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>record_audio</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>read_geolocation</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>use_camera</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>access_internet</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>play_audio</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>post_notification</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>set_audio_volume</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>access_bbid_pii</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>access_bbid_authenticate</permission> -->
   <!--  <permission>read_device_identifying_information</permission> -->
   <!-- Fourth digit segment of the package version. First three segments are taken from app
           description versionNumber tag. Must be an integer from 0 to 2^16-1 -->
   <buildId>1</buildId>
</qnx>

 

Is there a bar-descriptor.xml file template I could follow listed somewhere? This one I cut and pasted from a blackberry-tablet.xml from a Hello World tutorial.

 

I'd also like to lock the orientation to horizontal.

 

thanks,

Re: failure 881 application author does not match debug token author

I've found a workaround this error by defining <authorId> element in bar-descriptor.xml with authorid from debug token detail.
