Device Security Considerations for Unit Tests

Visual Studio 2008

Windows Mobile devices arrive from the mobile operator or equipment manufacturer preconfigured with security settings that restrict the execution of unsigned applications and installation of unsigned CAB files.

In order to run unit tests on the device, you may have to perform one or more of the following tasks:

  • Change the device's security configuration.

  • Add a certificate to the device's certificate store.

  • Sign your test container and dependent assemblies by using the appropriate certificate.

Specifically, this applies to devices that have the two-tier prompt security model such as Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone and Windows Mobile 6 Standard devices.
