    Porting from Symbian os 7.0s to Symbian os 9.2 - Possible ?

    Hi,

    2 or 3 years ago ( can't remember ) a team of colleagues create an application on Visual Studio 6.0 for Nokia 6600 ( Symbian os 7.0s ).

    The application has done its work really good.
    It's a quite simple application: it just send strings to a webserver and download an image.
    In addition it take photo and send them to a webservice installed.

    Now the customer wants to port it to a Nokia E51 ( Symbian os 9.2 ).
    So he try to install the SIS on Nokia E51 and got an error ( In Italian "applicazione non supportata", in english I think it should sounds like - application not supported ).

    I have been asked to take a look if it's possible, so i download the new SDK and I discover that Visual Studio 6.0 is not supported anymore, neither Carbide.vs and I have to download and install Carbide.C++ 2.0

    Now the question is:
    Is possible to compile a source code done for Symbian os 7.0s with Carbide.C++ 2.0 or is it quite impossible ?
    Do anyone have any experience about it ?


    Sorry for the bad english and thanks in advance.

    You cannot compile the sources as it is. You need to port the application so that it can be used on device supporting Symbian 9.2 Check documents on porting in Forum Nokia and Wiki.
