    Re: what is WINS and CW?

    WINS is for Windows Single Process. Originally it describes that the emulator runs in a single process, and Symbian applications are running in threads, thus on the emulator applications can corrupt data of other apps (while on the device applications run as separate processes).
    CW is for CodeWarrior: the Symbian toolchain has been working with Visual Studio (6 later .NET) for a long time. A few years ago the support for CodeWarrior (formerly Metrowerks now Nokia CodeWarrior) has also appeared, using separate SDK-s.
    The naming of the SDK-s is a bit insane in fact, since the above mentioned classifiers (WINS and CW) are used incoherently:
    - "WINS" SDK-s are supporting Visual Studio
    - "CW" SDK-s are supporting CodeWarrior
    - SDK-s having no separate releases for WINS/CW are supporting CodeWarrior (2nd edition FP3 and all 3rd edition releases)
    And also check the additional notes on the download page about Carbide.c++ and Carbide.vs support (Carbide.c++ is a sluggish, but standalone IDE, while Carbide.vs is a plugin for the Visual Studio 2003. VS2005 is not supported if you would have been going to ask about it).

    SDK 2nd Edition FP2 Japanese,WINS
    SDK 2nd Edition FP2 Thai,WINS
    If you speak Japanese or Thai, you can also use these for VS.Net

    No, 3rd edition SDK-s create binaries that cannot run on 2nd edition devices.
