    Problems getting movingball sample to work

    I have been having some major problems getting the movingball sample to compile and link properly. I am using Carbide vs. 3.0 along with Visual Studio 2005 on a Windows Vista Home machine. I have installed the RDAccelerometer libraries as stated in the readme.

    I am using the S60 3.0 FP1 service pack (I am developing for the Nokia n95). I have applied the Vista patch and I am able to build all of the test applications I have tried. I am compiling for gcce using armv5 which I installed along with the SDK.

    Whenever I attempt to build the project, it fails on makesis with result 1. I have made sure the .pkg file is there, and when I remove references to the accelerometer code it compiles and links. I am assuming there is a linker error, but I have been unable to fix it.

    Any ideas?

    Updating MovingBall.mmp based on Deb_S60_31_WINSCW
    Update of mmp file not needed

    What are the capabilities you have given, did you check what accelerometer libraries capabilities are in readme. Then add them to your mmp. Then start compiling...

    It seems that the makesis is not able to find your application exe itself while trying to create the sis file. First check whether your exe in there or not.You can look for it in \epoc32\release\$(Platform)\$(Target)\(yourapp).exe.
    Also I noticed that you are using the absolute path for your SDK, that is not a problem but it is normally a good practice to substitute your working epoc to a virtual drive like
    C:\Symbian\9.2\S60_FP1\ to something like x: .

    I would suggest looking at the verbose log file, c:\Users\Wilken\Downloads\MovingBall_Source_Codes\MovingBall\Rel_S60_31_GCCE\BuildLog.htm.

    It may give some hints there.

    Re: Problems getting movingball sample to work

    This example was designed with carbide.c++ and so I don't believe carbide.vs supports the replacable parameters in the pkg file as Carbide.c++ runs a make script to preprocess the pkg file to remove all the $(whatever) fields and replace them with the correct values then build the application

    I replaced all of the $() with the actual paths and everything built just fine.
