A "failed to find signing keys" bug? (WebWorks for tablet)

In this article:



I followed the steps but got an error while doing this packing and signing my .bar file:


bbwp <archive_file> -g <KeystorePassword> -buildId <num> -o <output_location>


[...] failed to find signing keys


and then I found that the signtool tried to read .p12 file in this path (by using filemon.exe) :

Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for TabletOS\bbwp\bin\sigtool.p12

there's no such file in that dictionary, so the error occued. 


then I copied an author.p12 file from:

\Local Settings\Application Data\Research In Motion\author.p12

 which was generated after doing this:


and renamed it to sigtool.p12 to the above dictionary, retried bbwp command line, It successed.


Is that a bug? Is that OK for signing my .bar file in this way? 




my environments:

T43 laptop;


SDK: WebWorks-Tablet-Win-v2.2.exe;

Vmware workstation 7

(Ripple costed so much CPU so I didn't use that)

I don't know, if it's a bug...but I renamed the .p12 file as described by SoftICE and signing is working now!!
