i'm asking here cause i have no idea where i should begin to trace the scource of my problem: i've written some program using s60 3rd editition mr and carbide.c++. in the beginning i tested it in both the "emulator" and on the phone (e60) and it worked fine. then, having had a lack of real phone, i tested for some weeks only on the emulator where everthing works. now that i again am able to use the phone and had to encounter that on the phone it installs without any errors and the installed application is also shown but, when i try to start it, NOTHING happens - no crash, no error message, not even the slightest blink - just nothing... :-(
for it running perfectly in the "emulator" i have no idea what the problem could be. does this have anything to do with capabilities? or with certificates? or something else?
because i relyed on the "emulator" for so long, the program is very large and i cannot isolate the problem.
i searched the forum and the only persons who reported a similar problem all told that they are using some self written dll's and searched the problem there... i don't use any dll's so i'm desperate.
so please, if you have any idea about this problem, give me some hints
btw: what is this so-called "emulator" that runs different code and even needs a different compiler to build than the device it should emulate? a real emulator by definition behaves the same way the real device would do. so why this sort of simulator or something is called "emulator"? and why is there no real emulator for some symbian device?
