Cannot sign application - failed to find signing key file: author.p12

I'm trying to sign a small WebWorks App using a Win7 Enterprise SP1 64 Bit (german version) machine. I've got all I need, the author.p12, the barsigner.csk and the barsigner.db files located in the directory "C:\Users\{Username}\AppData\Local\Research In Motion". I also copied these files into the WebWorksSDK installation folder, the "dependencies\tools\bin" subfolder and the "dependencies\tools\lib" subfolder. But bbwp says, that it isn't able to find my author.p12 file:

 

[ERROR]   Cannot sign application - failed to find signing key file: author.p12

 

What else can I do to sign my App?

Have you tried to put your signing files like csk, db etc . in the webwork bin  directory and try again or try using JDK6 (incase you are using JDK7) and edit the <java></java> in bbwp.properties too, all in the bin directory of the webwork installation folder.

No. But I created a new admin user on the machine, requested and registered new signing keys and got it working...
