    Starting with Symbian C++ develop

    I'm starting to develop in C++ for Symbian

    I'd like to use Eclipse because I know this IDE.

    I have used the tutorial at this link:

    http://newlc.com/Eclipse-plug-in-for-Symbian-C.html

    It advices to use:
    • Microsoft .NET Software Development Kit
    • Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003
    • Microsoft Windows Platform SDK
    • symbdev-0.5.2.zip (as plugin for Eclipse)


    I didn't find Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 because it was replaced by Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition.



    what 's the better plugin to use with Eclipse?
    Can you advise some tutorials to configure the environment to develop?

    Then how about going with Carbide.C++ 1.2 IDE !

    You may find it from here: Carbide.c++ v1.2

    And about your requested tutorial, refer to this link: Getting Started with Carbide.c++

    Finally on abstract level refer to this main page: Carbide Development Tools for Symbian OS C++

    Wait, one more link from Wiki which may lead you to explore some more inner links: Carbide ;)

    I hope this will really help you.
    Kiran.

    Re: Starting with Symbian C++ develop

    kiran is right. The Eclipse plug-in discussed in NewLC.com is rather old. If you look at the article's date, it was written in 2004.

    Nowadays, you can use Carbide.c++, which should be better. :)

    Re: Starting with Symbian C++ develop

    Thank you. I'm starting to use Carbide

    Can I remove from my PC these softwares (SDK) that I istalled for Eclipse?

    Softwares are:
    • Microsoft .NET Software Development Kit
    • Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003
    • Microsoft Windows Platform SDK


    Do I only need of S60 SDK and Perl. Right?

    No. No need to remove anything from your PC unless you do not require them longer for other developments.

    You may need:
    * Active Perl
    * Java Run Time (JRE)
    * S60 SDK.

    I hope this link proves to be useful to you: http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...12&postcount=6

    Re: Starting with Symbian C++ develop

    I have installed

    * Active Perl (ActivePerl-5.6.1.635-MSWin32-x86.msi)
    * Java Run Time (JRE 5.0)
    * S60 SDK 3rd version. (S60-SDK-0548-3.0-f.3.215f.zip)

    as showed in "Getting Started video" for Carbide.c++

    when I build my first project there are this problems:
    • 'abld' is not recognized as an internal or external command
    • BLDMAKE ERROR: Directory "\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd\EPOC32\" does not exist
    • Build returned with exit value = 1


    what is "abld" command?
    why does it say that there isn't Directory "\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd\EPOC32\"? It Exists!

    thanks

    Download 3rd entry from drop-down list:
    "3rd Edition, Maintenance Release(328 MB)"

    Uninstall the previous SDK.

    PS: Make sure that all these things are in one drive for smooth proceeding. i.e : Perl, JRE, SDK etc...
