    [moved] how to install widget application on s40 nokia,samsung

    Hi,

    I just created a new widget by following a tutorial. I created a zip containing all files and renamed it to HelloWorld.wgt instead of HelloWorld.zip. I sent it to my samsung star/corby via data cable, but when I try to open the wgt file on my phone it says it can't open it, because it doesn't know the filetype. Is there a way to install widgets on a Samsung Star without using a webserver?

    Thanks,
    Rahul Makode.

    Who said that Samsung Star supports Nokia's WRT framework? Yes, it does seem to advertise widget support but what widget format would that be? Unfortunately the widget story is very fragmented, there's no waranty that a WRT widget will work anywhere where the widget word is used in the technical specs.

    My advice is fo you to find support for your problem at http://innovator.samsungmobile.com

    As for WRT widget support on Nokia's Series 40 devices this is again somethign that is currently not supported.

    Maybe you already find the solution at this time, but I see the extension file is wrong, it should be .wgz
    Anyway I hope it does work on your phone.

    Regards!
