test_TemporaryKey.pfx file (MyWebTV) - 6/5/2006 9:05 AM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: MyWebTV

    I have notice there is file called test_TemporaryKey.pfx under the 
    Application folder in the EID created application. When I tried to publish 
    the application, it asked for the password to open the test_TemporaryKey.pfx 
    file.  What is this file ? Can I get rid of this file ? This file prevent me 
    to go any futher in deploy the application.
    
    Please help

    Unfortnately, I don't know too much about deployment / Click-Once to comment
    on this. One way would be to use Visual Studio to manipulate the project
    file - I know that VS2005 comes with support for creating Click-One
    manifests. Another option is the WPF forums.

    Thanks,

    That file is the key used for signing your manifests - this is used by the 
    click-once deployment technology. Expression Interactive Designer will not 
    address deployment of applications in v1 - you will have to fall back to 
    Visual Studio to generate your own key using their IDE. It was a mistake on 
    our part to supply a temporary key like this - our sincere apologies. For 
    the time being, you can simply hit enter when prompted for the password. 
    However, I would recommend generating your own key if you are seriously 
    considering depolying the application.
    
    Thanks,

    Thanks Unni.
    
    I will try it on WPF forums and looking for some more on key file. 
    
    You can reproduce this problem by try it push any EID May CTP project in 
    VS.NET 2005.  Try to publish as online/installed app, once you click finish 
    button. A few second later a dialog box shows up asking for the password for 
    test_TemporaryKey.pfx file. I tried hit enter. The dialog box stay on, I 
    can't pass that.
    
    I tried to delete the test_TemporaryKey.pfx file. When you try to publish, 
    it error out due to can't find the key file.

  • I have an issue where my developer has provided me the source but without the password for the key and i'm unable to get in contact with him, is there any way of loading up the code to build the app without the password?

    am i able to bypass this?

    Thanks
