Building the Sample

The following procedure describes how to build the sample.

  1. Install the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK).
  2. Register the Windows SDK.
  3. Follow steps for building, using Visual Studio or the command prompt.

    Using Visual Studio 2008:

    1. Open Windows Explorer.
    2. Navigate to the directory that contains the MusicBundleSignature.sln file.
    3. Double-click the MusicBundleSignature.sln file to open it with Visual Studio 2008.
    4. Go to the Build menu in Visual Studio 2008 and select Build Solution.

      Note  If the sample does not build successfully, close Visual Studio 2008 and run the .NET Framework Configuration Tool (Mscorcfg.msc) before attempting to build the sample.

    Using the command prompt:

    1. Open the command prompt.
    2. Navigate to the directory that contains the MusicBundleSignature.vcproj file.
    3. Enter the following command: msbuild MusicBundleSignature.vcproj.

Either the Debug or Release build mode may be used.

Running the Sample

Before running the sample application, ensure that the sample project has been built in the Debug or Release mode that corresponds to the build mode that will be used to run the sample.

Note  To run the sample successfully, at least one X.509 certificate must be present. If an X.509 certificate is not present, the Certificate Creation Tool (Makecert.exe) can be used to generate a certificate for testing purposes.

The following procedures describe how to run the sample using Visual Studio or the command prompt.

Using Visual Studio 2008:

  1. Open the Properties of the sample project.
  2. Under Configuration Properties, click the Debugging item.
  3. Type following argument into the Command Arguments text box and then click OK: MusicBundleSignature.exe.
  4. Run the sample.

Using the command prompt:

  1. Open the command prompt.
  2. Navigate to the directory that contains either the \Debug or the \Release project directory, as determined by the mode used to build and run the sample.
  3. Run the sample by entering the command: MusicBundleSignature.exe.

Additional Information

When run, the sample creates two files.

  • "SampleMusicBundle_signed.zip": the signed version of the original "SampleMusicBundle.zip" package.
  • "signer1.cer": a certificate file that can be used to identify the signer of the package.
