Packaging failed after trying to "Run Release"

[ Edited ]

Just another Momentics IDE very helpful error string:


'Uploading and starting the application' has encountered a problem.


Packaging failed: 1

Error: Unable to create output file: C:\<my_path>\App.so.bar


This happened after trying to "Run Release" my app...

Changing to "Run" works as expected. So I pretty much can't sign my app.


Can anyone from the blackberry community help me?

Re: Packaging failed after trying to "Run Release"

You can create a release version from your bar-descriptor.xml file. Open it in momentics and there will be an option "export release build" or something of that sort. You can then simply follow the wizard to get a signed bar file.
