BlackBerry Certificates after Moving to another PC

BlackBerry Certificates after Moving to another PC,blackberry,blackberry-10,blackberry-eclipse-plugin,blackberry-jde,Blackberry,Blackberry 10,Blackberry Eclipse Plugin,Blackberry Jde,I had eclipse and BB certificates (barsigner.csk, barsigner.db and author.p12) installed on Machine X which I used to sign BB10 application. Later, I moved to another computer, Machine Y, but didn't move those certificates, I created a BB7 app but used new certificates to sign it. Since then, every time I update those two apps I go and use Machine X for BB and Machine Y for BB7. However, now I can no longer use Machine X but I have a copy of the original barsigner.csk, barsigner.db and author.

Suggest keeping them backed up on Machine Y so you can easily manage them:

  • CodeSigning\
    • BB10\
    • BB7\

Keys (barsigner.csk, barsigner.db and author.p12) should be placed in the following shared folder when used by the SDK:

  • Windows XP: %HOMEPATH%\Local Settings\Application Data\Research In Motion Windows Vista,
  • Windows 7, and Windows 8: %HOMEPATH%\AppData\Local\Research In Motion
  • Mac OS: ~/Library/Research In Motion

Swap the relevant sets of keys in and out of this shared folder when you wish to use them to build either your BB10 or BB7 app.
