    Uninstalling applications from emulator

    Hi,

    Sorry if this is an obvious question, but how do you uninstall apps from the emulator?

    The method I use on my own phone, pressing C, results in a 'cannot delete' error.

    I've tried manually searching for an apps dir but can't seem to find it.

    Any help appreciated.

    Simon.

    If you want to remove your own applications, you can type the following command:

    abld clean winscw

    It should remove your applications from the emulator.

    Thanks for the help. Unfrortunately I can't get that to work, I typed it in from the command prompt but get a 'not recognized' error. I assume I'm missing an environment variable?

    I tried changing the dir to where 'abld.pl' is located in C:\Symbian\9.2\S60_3rd_FP1\Epoc32\tools, but again, no luck.

    And yes, this is just to delete my own apps. I would have thought it would be easier than this.

    IC. Have you run bldmake before running that command? Normally you have to type:

    bldmake bldfiles

    and then

    abld clean winscw


    If this doesn't help, the easiest way is to remove the files manually from the file system. Usually there are four files you have to delete, i.e.:

    \epoc32\release\winscw\udeb\myapp.exe
    \epoc32\data\z\resource\apps\myapp.rsc
    \epoc32\data\z\private\10003a3f\import\apps\myapp_reg.rsc
    \epoc32\data\z\resource\apps\myapp_aif.mif"
