  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    We are stuck with error "Announcement date is not valid. Please select a day greater than or equal to today" when submitting our APO driver cab package for attestation signature. We'd been submitting the same packages with no issues for more than a year until now. Talking with Dashboard's representative yielded no result and he recommended asking the community on this, which i am doing. I'd really appreciate your help. Here is our cab's ddf file:

    .OPTION EXPLICIT     ; Generate errors
    .Set CabinetFileCountThreshold=0
    .Set FolderFileCountThreshold=0
    .Set FolderSizeThreshold=0
    .Set MaxCabinetSize=0
    .Set MaxDiskFileCount=0
    .Set MaxDiskSize=0
    .Set CompressionType=MSZIP
    .Set Cabinet=on
    .Set Compress=on
    ; Specify file name for new cab file
    .Set CabinetNameTemplate="SEAPO64_Synaptics.cab"
    ; Specify the subdirectory for the files.
    ; Your cab file should not have files at the root level,
    ; and each driver package must be in a separate subfolder.
    .Set DestinationDir=SEAPO64
    ; Specify files to be included in cab file
    C:\Projects\SoundEdge\APO\SEAPO_PACK\SEAPO64_Synaptics\SEAPO64\HPIMMA64.dll
    C:\Projects\SoundEdge\APO\SEAPO_PACK\SEAPO64_Synaptics\SEAPO64\SEAPO64.dll

    C:\Projects\SoundEdge\APO\SEAPO_PACK\SEAPO64_Synaptics\SEAPO64\SECOMN64.dll
    C:\Projects\SoundEdge\APO\SEAPO_PACK\SEAPO64_Synaptics\SEAPO64\SECOMN64.exe
    C:\Projects\SoundEdge\APO\SEAPO_PACK\SEAPO64_Synaptics\SEAPO64\SEHDHF64.dll
    C:\Projects\SoundEdge\APO\SEAPO_PACK\SEAPO64_Synaptics\SEAPO64\SEHDRA64.dll

    Thank you,

  • Ok, we were able to submit packages after changing time zone to Taiwan, Taipei. Submitting from US Pacific time zone doesn't work!

  • We tried submitting original package of one that previously went through and we got the same error "Announcement date is not valid. Please select a day greater than or equal to today." So, it looks like it's a bug in the Dashboard? How do we get support on this? Dashboard representative wasn't able to help us.

    Here is the link to the submission that previously went through and doesn't now:
