    Re: Requirements to port the s60 3rd edition app on s60 2nd edition app!

    Basically to run the application on 2nd edition device you will have to make the changes in the following files:

    1) <Application name>.cpp -> 2nd editon make app file and 3rd edition exe
    2) Pkg file -> path for resources and other files are different in both 2nd and 3rd ediiton
    3) MMP file -> target type-> app and not exe as in 3rd edition


    If you have big project then Just make one empty project in 2nd edition and then start placing your 3rd editon container and engine in it. This way you will be able to know what is working in 2nd edition and what is not.


    This link will provide you with difference between 2nd and 3rd edition.

    As suggested above best way is to create one empty project and then make changes to it by adding other files. You will also need to check if all the api you are using is compatible and available in 2nd edition.
