Problem with security policy

Post by toutoune60 » Thu Oct 05, 2006 2:01 pm

When installing BirdieSync 1.2.1.0, I always get this error :
"Impossible to read the security policy of the mobile".

My unlocked spv c500 is connected to activesync via Bluetooth. Is it the problem?

Hello,

I don't think so. I realize my tests with Bluetooth.
You should find a file named BirdieSyncInstall.log in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Temp or in the %TEMP% variable directory. Is this file empty ? If it is not, could you send it to support@birdiesync.com ?
Thanks.

OK. Normally an error should be logged in installation log. I will do some tests on my own to check these traces. I'm not sure it properly works because I was also informed about other warnings which are not logged. I keep you informed shortly.

I found the problem regarding the traces. I will send you a new build. Use it for the installation and send me back the BirdieSyncInstall.log so that I can try to analyze the problem.

Ok now, with the new version, I can install BirdieSync on my computer but... as you said, I can't select the items in ActiveSync. Is this due to the fact that my c500 is not unlocked properly? Do you know which tool I could use to unlock it?

Yes, the C500 is very likely not unlocked. I know they are tools to unlock it.
Have a look to Modaco forum: http://www.modaco.com/ You can have very useful information regarding Pocket PC and Smartphones, especially about unlocking !
Here is the forum regarding the C500:

If you have problem unlocking it, contact me again, and I will give you more precise information to do it.

My c500 is now properly unlocked but options in ActiveSync still can't be checked. Where can I find the BirdieSync log file ?

Does it mean that you have no warning (pop up window) when you install BirdieSync ? Is the file BirdieSyncInstall.log located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Temp empty ?

Also, when you install an unsigned application, do you have a prompt on the mobile asking you an authorization to execute it ?

Just the new warning saying "It seems that your mobile doesn't allow execution of unsigned applications in privileged mode..."

Yes !

Not anymore since I have installed the Orange unlocking program that they have sent me today

The problem with the Orange program is that it doesn't fully unlock your mobile. It is rather for developpers. Actually, it very likely only allows you to install a privilege certificate to test development. The best way is to find a signed version of a registry editor and to apply the changes I describe in the "How to unlock a mobile" post.

All right, it seems to work now with these modifications :

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\

00001005: 16 (to allow installation of unsigned applications)
00001006: 1 (to allow the launch of unsigned applications)
0000101a: 1 (to avoid prompting for unsigned applications)
0000101b: 1 (to allow execution of privileged unsigned applications) 
The Orange tool was not enough!
Thanks a lot Birdy and now let's try this great software!
