I’m actually trying to figure out why the menu bar icon for AUM is missing on workstations after upgrading from 10.6.8 to Lion.
In the past, the AUM / Extension Manager icon was there, with a number indicating how many updates were available on our local AUM server.
I can't understand what "menu bar icon" and "workstations" mean. Could you give some explanation or screenshot? Does this has anything to do with signature?
I have a customer who is seeing this error (does not contain a valid signature) in CC even (Extension Manager 188.8.131.52). I cannot replicate this issue on my system. The extension is signed with a valid (not expired) certificate.
Does anyone know of a fix for this error with EM CC?
P.S. My 2 cents: I agree with Harbs. Signing certificates seem like an unnecessary hurdle. They cause more problems than they help.
Please download and install signature validation tool from http://www.adobe.com/mena_fr/devnet/air/flash/quickstart/articles/xml_signatures.html. Unzip your extension to a folder then run this tool. Click "Load Signature" button and browse to the META-INF/signatures.xml in the folder mentioned above. Click "Verify Signature" button. Please check the result and paste the result here.
Thanks for your reply, Carl. It looks like there are no issues listed:
Signature status: valid
Digest status: valid
Identity status: valid
Reference status: valid
Signing certificate information:
Common name field: Ajar Productions
Distinguished name field: , cn=Ajar Productions, o=Ajar Productions, l=Sonoma, st=CA, c=US
Extended key usage OIDs: 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.3
Trust settings: signing, codeSigning
...etc (all files say 'verified')...
What would make it different on another computer? It's the same ZXP. Shouldn't the signature be the same?
The signature does is the same. But different computers have different certificate trust store and different Internet connection (Extension Manager has to access timestamp server and CRL server during signature validation). You also said this issue occurred in one customer’s computer but not on your computer.
You can also ask the customer to disable Internet access in Extension Manager CC temporarily then install this extension again to see whether it makes any difference. To achieve this, click “Tools” -> “Preferences…” menu item, then uncheck “Allow Extension Manager to access Internet”.
The customer was able to install by disabling internet access for EM. Is there a way to avoid this?
Then I guess this issue is related to the special CRL info in the signature. Have your customer updated Extension Manager to the latest version? Now the 7.1 update is available.
I'm checking with the customer to see if he'll try the 7.1 update of EM.
I am having the same issue with my extension. I donwloaded the application you mentioned above but I cannot find a way to unzip my ZXP file and I dob't see any META-INF/signatures.xml on my computer. What should I do here?
For your info, it is not working on CS6 (here, it starts the installation, then shows the message and do the rollback) and CC (here, it shows the message at the beginning). I used the same pkey in another extension and it is working perfectly...
If I generate the ZXP file using AEM CS6 (without the signature) it installs perfectly in both CC and CS6.
I got the issue (it did not have anything to do with the certification). I had a file with spaces in the name "Sprite Sheet.jsx" and this was the culprit. As soon as I renamed it to "Sprite_Sheet.jsx" everything worked.
Glad to know your issue was solved. The ZXP file is actually a standard zip file. So you can unzip it with any unzip tools such as 7-zip or winzip, winrar. After unzip, you can find META-INF/signatures.xml in the unzipped folder.
It's strange that the problem was caused by the space character in file name. I wonder if it is possible for you to send your old extension (with signature and with space in file name) to email@example.com so that we can check it. Thanks!
I checked your extension. There is a line in the mxi file as follows:
<file source="Sprite Sheet Exporter.jsx" destination="$scripts\" file-type="ordinary" />
But there is no such file in the zxp. There is only "Sprite_Sheet_Exporter.jsx" in the zxp.
In the signatures.xml, there are references of digest value for both "Sprite Sheet Exporter.jsx" and "Sprite_Sheet_Exporter.jsx". During verifying file digest, Extension Manager can't find "Sprite Sheet Exporter.jsx" in the file system. This is why the signature is invalid. I am not clear why such signature was created.
this is very strange as, originally, only Sprite Sheet Exporter.jsx existed. Then I renamed it and the ZXP worked. Then I (re)renamed it back to Sprite Sheet Exporter, and send it to you. I have no idea why the signatures.xmls has both...
The issue is happening again. Any chance you can take a look at my zip and let me know your findings? I sent you to your email. Thanks!
I'd also like to hear the status of this as well. The invalid signature message is still appearing intermittently for our customers.
Please disregard my previous email. I got the issue (another file with spaces in the name).
