I have created an HTML extension for InDesign, it works fine if i use the development environment by adding PlayerDebug mode in the plist/Registry. However when i sign it using a self signed certificate, it takes a very long time to load on MAC. It takes several minutes before the extension UI loads and then it works fine. However on the WIN machine the extension does not load at all, it just presents a black window. So i have the following queries
I signed other of my extensions using this same certificate and all works fine. The only difference with this extension is that the codebase is big around 700 MB's, can this be the issue for high loading time?
Thanks for the help
StageManager validates the signature of extensions at load time to ensure that the installed extension footprint hasn't been modified. I believe this process must be happening file by file.
if you have codebase worth 700 MBs. System must take considerable time to validate against each file.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Yes you are right, as suspected the size of the code bundle was the culprit. Reducing the size reduced the load time as well
