    HelloWorldBasic gives build errors after SDK installation


    I have installed S60_5th_Edition_SDK_v0.9, and checked the command line build for the helloWorld example located in following location:

    The build shows errors.
    I found the error related info on the following link


    Which mentions similar problem as: abld.bat: "CreateProcess((null), mwccsym2.exe ... failed

    I get similar message.

    The solution given is :

    This message comes when abld.bat cannot find the executable of [Nokia_x86_compiler|x86 compiler]. This compiler is shipped with Carbide.c++.


    The solution is to add the path of the x86 compiler (mwccsym2.exe) into PATH environment variable. This can be done by running a tool, called env_update.exe. For Carbide.c++ 1.2, this tool is located at \carbide\x86Build\env_switch. Run the tool and follow the instruction to setup all the needed environments.

    Does this mean that carbide must be installed in order to build the example applications?

    Can somebody give me some explanation regarding this?

    Thanks in advance,

    yes you should be installing carbide.c++ for emulator builds.
