    S60 v5 Emulator loading issue

    I am using netbeans 6.7.1 with s60 5th edition sdk and so far I am not liking it. I found couple of issues

    1. Installation of sdk took more than 2 hours for me. I think that is too slow for anyone.
    2. The emulator included with sdk does not load most of the times. When it loads it takes around 30 minutes to start. Nokia is expecting developers to be that patient ?

    Any suggestions for speeding up emulator loading time will be highly appreciated.

    My current config is
    Core 2 Duo 2.53 Ghz
    2 Gb RAM
    160 Gb Disk.

    These times (2 hours for install, half an hour for startup) are far from typical. Does your system operate normally otherwise? Can it happen that your hard drive is extermely fragmented?
    Installation does not really require processing power or even tons of free memory, but it deploys a huge number of files. If that takes too long, collecting the files on emulator startup is also going to take a long time.
    You may also consider checking the load of your PC (mainly CPU-memory-IO) with some advanced tool like Process Explorer (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb896653.aspx)
