FAQ

Q: My Standalone application is not found on my static server.
A: Make sure you have sssp_config.xml in the directory as well. The standalone application can’t be downloaded directly from the browser/URL but only works on the display.

Q: The link for installation/update is not working. An error “Unable to download” occurs when accessing the update links.
A: The Tizen app on its own can NOT be downloaded. The link URL has to be used from within the Tizen URL launcher itself. In case the link does not work inside the display, meaning not downloading the app at all, please add a “/” symbol (trailing slash) at the end of the URL.
Tizen inconsistently requires this sign without any indication at all. If you are using a URL with a trailing slash, try to remove it. Lastly, if you are still experiencing issues downloading the app to your Tizen device, check the correct date and time on the display.

Q: The Tizen device can’t download the application core app. There is an error displayed: Unable to connect to the server. Please try again later
A: If the core app file can’t be downloaded with the following error message, please double-check the Time and Date in the device settings. These parameters must be set properly to update/install applications on the Tizen device.
