    Default Any changes to ZAR_POI.BIN.inf result in an upgrade error (SMEG/SMEG+/SMEG IV2)

    I've got a SMEG/SMEG+/SMEG IV2 radar control POI update, which contains a lot of files and folders. Using my SMEG+ I've stripped all files and directories that are not required for *my* system to successfully install the update. This leaves me with the following files/directories:

    • DATA
      • BASE1
        • ZAR_POI.BIN
        • ZAR_POI.BIN.inf
      • BASE2
        • ZAR_POI.BIN
        • ZAR_POI.BIN.inf
    • SMEG_PLUS_UPG
      • contract.dat
      • UpgPlugin.out
      • UpgPlugin.out.inf


    However, any changes that I make to any of the ZAR_POI.BIN.inf files, results in the upgrade to fail.

    Code:

    Changing a number in the date, or changing the provider or the media name all results in the error message that the upgrade file is not eligible for copy. For some reason it looks like there is some kind of CRC-check applied to at least these files. But since I've stripped all files and directories that are not required, there are no other files that can provide information about the CRC of these files. The files in SMEG_PLUS_UPG directory haven't changed since a year (they are the same every month) and the ZAR_POI.BIN.inf is changed every month.

    So, why is changing the ZAR_POI.BIN.inf causing the upgrade to fail?

    Have you change the file-size of inf-file? If so, you must alter the CID_SIZES!

    If not I think it has to do with the contract.dat.
    I guess it contains information's to prevent manipulations from package.
    And it seems to be encrypted .
