    Capabilities problem

    I am trying to develop some WLAN management program. As a part of that, I went through the example given in our wiki.
    its here: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...Management_API

    I took the sisx file given along to some debugger online and found that its using capabilities like commDD and multimediaDD.

    I am pretty new to Symbian.C++ and I havent understood the significance of these 'capabilities'. What I want to achieve is to build a program that scans for 'WLAN' connections around and gives the details. Does this require the above mentioned capabilities?

    Why I am asking is because I am confused whether to go for a ACS PublisherID and all. I was planning to go for a developer certificate.

    stay hungry, stay foolish :-)

    Re: Capabilities problem

    No, the person who wrote the example has just been extremely lazy and given it ALL-TCB rather than take a minute to figure out what capabilities it really needs. Neither MultimediaDD or CommDD is required.

    On the other hand, you may end up needing NetworkControl, which is a manufacturer granted capability.
