    renaming app, how??

    Hey

    symbian SDK 2ed 2fp series 60
    Carbide.c 1.2

    In Carbide-c I've created a simple application called "Test", which I installed on my n6630 device. Now I've created another app with the same name (or actually it is the same app but with totally different GUI).. My problem is that this new app don't run on my n6630 device. (I have installed it but it immediately closes after being started)

    I have lot of problems with my n6630 device:
    - suddenly all my pictures I had stored on the mobile was gone (they don't appear in the Gallery anymore). But those pictures still take up lot of memoery on my mobile
    - a Java app I created is now gone!

    I post those problems here because they may be related to my problem running symbian app... maybe it could help to rename the app to another name so the device think this a new app etc...

    if renaming the is a good idea, then I wonder how do I do that in Carbide.c: I've tryed to change Target name but it didn't change the name.. how should this be done?

    any suggestions?

    Try uninstalling both applications first...

    For simple applications renaming can be done in the .pkg file for example:
    Code:
    "...\HelloWorld.app"-"!:\system\apps\HelloWorld\HelloWorld.app"
    "...\HelloWorld.rsc"-"!:\system\apps\HelloWorld\HelloWorld.rsc"
    ...
    can become
    Code:
    "...\HelloWorld.app"-"!:\system\apps\HelloTest\HelloTest.app"
    "...\HelloWorld.rsc"-"!:\system\apps\HelloTest\HelloTest.rsc"
    ...
    The same might work for the _caption.rsc and the .aif too. However if you have .mbm-s or other data files, you have to replace their references in the source code too.

    I've done that but still the app has its original name!

    I've also tryed to changed some of the values of some text constants in the .loc file (for example changing the value of #define qtn_view1_tab "View1" to "ViewA")... but these changes has no effect. It looks to me like the Carbide.c are using some kind of cached version they compile and send to the emulator....

    Any suggestions?
