Creating application ID from HeathVault Application Manager in UK environment


This Blog Post will help you in creating Application ID from HeathVault Application Manager in UK environment, as partners from UK cannot create Application ID using HeathVault Application Manager unless they modify ApplicationManager.exe.config file. HeathVault Application Manager will only work for US environment. Partners can create Application ID without using Application Manager by using makecert.exe and the corresponding documented steps mentioned in this URL: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/healthvault/bb814945.aspx, but this process is confusing for partners to follow.

 

The basic steps to achieve this functionality:

 

By default, the DropOffUrl in ApplicationManager.exe.config file is set to http://config.healthvault-ppe.com .  We need to modify the DropOffUrl of ApplicationManager.exe.config file so that the partners from UK can also create Application ID from HeathVault Application Manager.  ApplicationManager config file is available in HealthVault standard installation location C:\Program Files\Microsoft HealthVault\SDK\Tools\ApplicationManager.exe.config.

 

1.  Open the ApplicationManager.exe.config. The existing appSettings tag is shown below:

 <appSettings

       <add key="DropOffUrl" value="http://config.healthvault-ppe.com/RegisterNewApplicationDropoff.aspx" /> 

   <add key="TurnOnUpload" value="true" />

</appSettings>

 

2.       Change the DropOffUrl value as shown below and save the ApplicationManager.exe.config file.

<appSettings

       <add key="DropOffUrl" value="http://config.healthvault-ppe.co.uk/RegisterNewApplicationDropoff.aspx" /> 

   <add key="TurnOnUpload" value="true" />

</appSettings>

 

3.       Run the HealthVault Application Manager as Administrator.

 

4.       Click on Create New Application and give the Application Name.

 

5.       Uncheck “Automatically Create Visual Studio Website for this Application” and then click on “Create and Register Application”.

 

6.       Copy the Application ID from HealthVault Application Manager by right clicking on the Application and clicking on Copy to Clipboard. Then paste the Application ID in your web.config file and run the application.
