    [moved] Single SISX file with multiple applications embedded in it

    HI Experts,

    I have question regarding installation of application,
    Is it possible to install multiple applications via single sisx file?
    Does s60 device support this feature?

    If yes are there any sample sisx file with multiple application embedded in it?

    Thanks,

    Re: Single SISX file with multiple applications embedded in it

    A real-world, in-production "example" of an existing .sisx file with multiple embedded .sisx files that get installed is the Nokia N-Gage application:

    http://www.n-gage.com/ngi/ngage/web/.../download.html

    Read also the SDK documentation (Symbian OS Tools and Utilities > Software Installation Toolkit - Guide > How to create an installation with embedded sis files).

    Re: Single SISX file with multiple applications embedded in it

    Thanks a lot for your answers,

    I am installing this embedded sis programtically using the API mentioned in this wiki,

    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ogrammatically.

    iLauncher.SilentInstall( iStatus, .., .. );
    SetActive();

    Is it possible to get iStatus of each and every embedded SIS as and when installed or will it return the status after all the embedded sis are installed in single sisx package?

    Re: Single SISX file with multiple applications embedded in it

    Embedded SIS files are installed by the Software Installer automatically, there is no need for you to use any API. APIs from the SDK API plug-in(s) should be used only when there is a real need and no other standard solution of solving it. Please note the binary incompatibility risk that accompanies those APIs.

    An no, the installer API has one status per installation request, that is one status for the installed package, not for the sis files that might be embedded in it.
