Code signing keys - unable to find sigtool.csk file

I am using the Blackberry Java plug-in for eclipse and I have created a native application...

 

Every time I try to install the code signing keys in Eclipse I get the error: Unable to find sigtool.csk file - after I type in the information in the Signature Tool Registration box. I read that I should be prompted to create a new private key pair but that never happened... Please help me...

This link should help you out.

 

The signature key window disappears after receiving the private key prompt

Re: Code signing keys - unable to find sigtool.csk file

Thanks so much for your reply... I am still a little confused though... I got the full installer off the Blackberry site because I did not have an existing Eclipse environment... Under 'installed software' in Eclipse it says that I have:

 

Blackberry Java Plug-in (core)

Blackberry Java SDK 7.1.0.10

Blackberry Java SDK 4.5.0.3.0 - this is the one I am using

Eclipse SDK 3.7.0

 

Aren't those all compatible?

Re: Code signing keys - unable to find sigtool.csk file

Yes, they should be.  Usually the most recent SignatureTool should be used.  Are you installing from a command line or using the GUI in Eclipse?

 

What version(s) of JDK do you have installed?  What is you JAVA_HOME set to?

Re: Code signing keys - unable to find sigtool.csk file

I tried to install from the GUI but eventually gave up... So I re-installed the BlackBerry Java Plug-In for Eclipse from the full installer on the Blackberry site... Although I was subsequently able to register the signing keys - it was a huge mistake... I lost the Blackberry SDK 5.0 and now every time I try to install it i get a time-out error... What now???

Re: Code signing keys - unable to find sigtool.csk file

Install one SDK through the update through the update site at a time.  Installing more than one in parallel can cause Eclipse to time out.

 

It's also possible you have a partially downloaded file Eclipse is trying to reuse.  Close Eclipse, clear your temp directory and try again. 

 

If you still see problems post the exact error you see.
