A recent support query worth sharing…

I have a problem with my MULTOS SmartCard.
Windows 10 (x64)
SmartDeck 3.1
MULTOS Training Kit (MULTOS MC3-36K-R1 CARD)

The reason for this is that the card being used is a Developer Community Card that has live keys. hterm -card only recognises developer cards with known test keys.

To load applications on to live Developer Community Cards you have two options:-

1. Use StepXpress to obtain load and delete certificates manually from the KMA (see the document StepServer for MULTOS User Manual in the Developer Kit). You can then load applications using hterm as follows

>hterm -alu myapp.alu -alc myapp.alc

and delete them with

>hterm -adc myapp.adc


2. Use MUtil to obtain certificates automatically from the KMA using the web services interface. See page 5, section 3.2 of the MUtil Manual and the MUtil release note.
