    [moved] devices.xml in wrong place when installing to D:

    Hi, I just installed Carbide 2.0 on Windows XP. Whenever I added the SDK it vanished immediately afterwards in Carbide, and it told me that there is no devices.xml, and should it create one.

    Then I realized that carbide put the file into
    D:\Program Files\Common Files\Symbian,
    and then failed to read it from
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symbian

    I could solve it by manually copying devices.xml from D: to C: .

    I guess it is a bug in the carbide installation, and it happened because I installed carbide to
    D:\Program Files\Nokia\Carbide.c++ v2.0
    instead of C:.

    Re: devices.xml in wrong place when installing to D:

    It is the SDK install that creates/updates the devices.xml file, all that Carbide.c++ does it find it and read it. Anyhow, this sounds like a bug indeed so please tell us which SDK are you using, we might be able to do something about fixing the problem. Also, is C your system drive or is it D?

    The SDK is S60_5th_Edition_SDK_v1.0.

    My system drive is C:.

    BTW: I don't know if this is related, but I can't build a project, and the error message seems to indicate that there is a problem with devices.

    When I build a helloworld example all I get is bldmake returned with exit value = 2.

    When I call bldmake from the command line I get:
    Code:
    D:\Symbian\Carbide\workspace\Hellooo\group>bldmake bld.inf
    To use Symbian OS tools without specifying a device name, a default
    device must be set using the devices -setdefault command.
    I get a different error message after setting EPOCROOT=D:\S60\devices\S60_5th_Edition_SDK_v1.0 (this was recommended in a different forum post that disappeared from this site but still exists in google cache).
    Code:
    D:\Symbian\Carbide\workspace\Hellooo\group>bldmake bld.inf
    To use new Symbian OS tools specify a default device using devices -setdefault
    (otherwise unset EPOCROOT and specify a device explicitly)

    Don't set EPOCROOT, just make sure to call devices.exe and inspect its output. Your SDK should be listed among supported devices. To enable the SDK set it as default ( devices -setdefault @<sdk_id> ) and then for a test call the emulator (epoc.exe).

    Remember that the SDK cannot handle disk drives so always use the SDK from the disk on which it is installed.
