    AutoStart My application at bootup

    Hi folks,

    I’m sorry to drag up this issue again, I have just been trawling through a whole bunch of posts on this subject and I’m more confused now than when I started.

    So let’s start from my requirements (in order of importance)
    • My application must start when the phone boots (immediately)
    • My application must start when the application is installed

    Initially i used Ezboot.sis for this purpose and its worked for me but the problem is when the phone boots my application gets started after a long time.

    So i tried to create a recognizer. From the forums i understood that a recognizer is to created independently(separate package ).

    I have the code for a recognizer from the link(http://mikie.iki.fi/symbian/autostart.html).
    but i failed to create a recognizer along with my application (i.e. the recognizer should get installed when i install my application).

    please guide me with from initial step for the following requirements.
    1. A recognizer along with my application
    2. What are files and functions that i have to change when i add the recognizer to my application (example : a hello world application)
    3. My application should immediately start after the phone gets booted (no delay).

    Just place your recognizer target file (exe or dll(in OS 9.x) in your application package file and place them in system folder on device (in simple words place your recongizer exe in pakage to place it exactly at the same place where your main application 's exe is placed in your pkg file).


    note that make recognizer as separate project and after building it do the above mentioned step. Now when your application is installed your recognizer will also installed automatically.

    This feature is part of the OS, check for "startup list management" in the SDK Help. Note that only trusted applications (having low-UIDs - 0x0-0x7FFFFFFF - and Symbian- or DevCert-signed) can be started automatically.

    For which target you want this thing? Do you want it for S60 2nd or S60 3rd edition?
