    Application does not appear after installation

    Hi there,

    I have a problem. I am trying to deploy an application in a N91 using SDK_S60_FP1, compiled with GCCE. It installs correctly but I cant find my application icon in the menu. I read about the UID issues and I changed the UIDs from symbiansigned.com. Here is my mmp and pkg files.

    PKG File:



    ; standard SIS file header

    ;Localised Vendor name

    ;Unique Vendor name

    ;Supports Series 60 v 3.0
    [0x200005FC], 0, 0, 0, {"Series60ProductID"}

    ;Files to install
    ;You should change the source paths to match that of your environment
    ;<source> <destination>

    I checked with the paths and they seem to be correct (Carbide use these paths by default). Have I made a mistake with my UIDs maybe?

    There can be many problems really, one thing I would check and ree-check that all information si absolutely correct in your reg.Rss file, it would be the first suspect.

    And then check the mmp file. This heppened to me last night infact also, I was copying old project to form a new one, and forgot the old secureID into the mmp file. All worked well in emulator, but only problem weat that the application didn't get registered, no error messages basically shown, the installer simply decided to install the app without problem, but didn't add the application into the list.

    Re: Application does not appear after installation

    Thak you very much. This helped a lot. I managed to install it and find the icon but then I couldnt run it. Now I uninstalled it and tried to install it again and it says that the "component is built in"? How can i format and erase everything?

    Full format - You can initate a full format from the HDD utilities and it is always recommended to use a charger. The full format process takes time and at the beginning the progress bar may appear to stopped but it is not. If you interrupt the full format by power cycling, battery going low then please ensure that you initiate a full format (not a quick format) and let it complete. Using quick format immediately after an aborted full format may cause unpredictable behaviour.

    Thank you very much for that. I now have another problem. I installed the application and found the icon. But when i open it, it doesnt do anything. No response not even an error.
    Does anyone know what this is?

    Re: Application does not appear after installation

    That usually happens when your application leaves during the construction, i.e. the Appui's Construct is either never called, it it has a bug that causes it to leave.

    Possible causes that Appui's Construct is never called could be for example:
    1. Wrong UID returned by application
    2. Additional libraries defined in mmp that are not present in the system

    Basically, check the UID, see a bit of the libraries you have included, and then add logging code (write to RFile for example) in your Appui's ConstructL function to see which lines are getting ewxecuted.
