    Carbide.c++ and Emulator are very slow

    hello,

    I have been working with the Carbide.c++ workspace for a couple of weeks now, and this environment is very slow, I can't do anything in the PC while programing, and the program often takes a few minutes to respond for a simple mouse press. The emulator as well, takes a lot of time to start. I have formatted all of the PC, thought that this will help - it didn't.

    I wanted to know if there is a faster environment I can work with to develop for Nokia N97, even a "non-free" program,

    thanks

    For Symbian.C++ IDE is optional, you can use even "NotePad++" to write code and compile using commandline.

    Re: Carbide.c++ and Emulator are very slow

    Carbide.c++ is a Java based application, and not a small one. It needs CPU power and it needs memory, and even so it will not be as fast as a native application. However, what you describe is not normal, the IDE is snappy enough for the tasks you have to perform with it.

    How does your PC's specifications compare with Carbide's minimum requirements?

    Hi,

    well carbide is based on eclipse and it consumes 70 to 80% of process space and memory of the inherit pc. Optimisation is kind of crap in java based IDE's.Need to be looked upon for future aspects of its development.

    Hi,
    I also met same problem yesterday, but I resolved.
    Once begin your emulator, then don't turn off everytime and only rebuild your project.

    Most recent emulators support a partial startup mode, you can enable it in the preferences.

    Re: Carbide.c++ and Emulator are very slow

    In general, let me suggest the real device rather than the emulator for two reasons:
    a) device is faster
    b) emulator (especially s60v5 is not accurate

    All the best
