    Python runtime on emulator

    Good evening,

    I am trying to start with Python for S60 platforms, and stuck with some problem.
    I use S60 3rdEd FP2 version of SDK (from https://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=854 release section 1.9.2), and installed everything according to this link:
    http://wiki.opensource.nokia.com/pro...stalling_PyS60

    After that I made some simple helloworld app, built a .sis file from it using Ensymble, and finally wanted to run it on Emu, resulting in error "Python runtime is missing".
    As I understand, to have runtime I must install smth like Python_1.9.2_3rdEdFP2.sis, but this also leads to error "Component is built-in".
    I used lots of search (with no positive results), and it looks like .sis file _must_ be built for the target platform (in my case - WINSCW).
    So, I have following questions:

    1 - how do I know, fow which platform a particular .sis file is built? For ex., this: https://garage.maemo.org/frs/downloa...2_3rdEdFP2.sis
    I suppose it is built for hardware phones, which lead to the next question:
    2 - where to find Python runtime .sis file, built for emulator? In this thread: http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...d.php?t=163773
    someone in post #3 stated "1.9.2 worked fine on Emulator". It confuses me: how it could be, if the .sis isn't built for emulator?

    I have spend lots of time searching in forums, and have no clear understanding how to use emulator + Python runtime correctly.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Python runtime on emulator

    I've found an instruction about how to install Python on emulator. It is here: http://wiki.opensource.nokia.com/pro...r_installation
    I tried it with 3rdFP1 and PyS60 1.9.7, and installation seems successful (but yet doesn't seem to do something - at least, no errors)

    hi,

    Just to clarify that sis file is meant to install in the device only and it has nothing to do with emulator. To install python for your emulator you have to extract the file to your epocroot folder.

    Hope it helps you.
