barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

Hello, I got this error when I try to sing my app:

 

barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

 

I tried everything: running as administrator, changing directory security and so on.

I get this error both with command line and from Flash Builder.

I have SDK v.0.9.1

I have my application ready to be submitted but can't figure out this error, I'd be very disappointed to not meet the 31st March deadline :-/

 

Any hint? Thanks

Re: barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

Really 0.9.1? could you sign your app with that version? have you tried the 0.9.4 SDK?

Re: barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

Could this be the problem?

Isn't it more a Windows-related issue?

 

Anyway I've just retried to download the SDK and it redirects me to the 0.9.1 version. I had to follow another link to start downloading 0.9.4. Confusing at least :-/

 

Thanks Smiley Happy

I installed the 0.9.4 and the same error persists Smiley Sad

 

Any hint?

Re: barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

For starters submit it unsigned. That way you will meet the deadline as others have done.

Re: barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

Will I qualify for the free PlayBook even with a unsigned application? Are you sure?

 

If so, that's a good news. I'll submit it unsigned and I'll try to get it signed as soon as I can.

 

Anyone got the same issue and submitted it unsigned? (and got it approved of course)

There are a few. Check the app approved thread.

Re: barsigner error: cannot create application data directory

Finally I've sort it out.

I had to install 0.9.4 and do the entire process using the command line.

I also set sdk /bin directory into the PATH and executed cmd.exe as administrator (using Win7).

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy
