I was thinking about upgrading to Windows 7, and add 4GB Memory and an 120GB SSD to get better startup of emulator. However, I want to understand why it starts up so slowly in the first place? any ideas?

    The faq link for "FAQ0713". Here is the URL for the faq link -- http://www3.symbian.com/faq.nsf/45ae...4?OpenDocument . I even changed it to "http://www.symbian.com/faq.nsf/45aef46f9a8a61f9802569de0067eb63/a30060c3d22f82f780256a81005078b4?OpenDocument" removing the "3" and it still fails. Where can I find this FAQ? (Tried search too)

    Re: S60 5th Edition SDK Emulator -- SLOW

    Symbian Ltd. and its .com site does not exist anymore. But a bit a search in the SDK docs on in the online library will get to the info you need in 99% of the cases. See http://library.forum.nokia.com/topic.../faq_0713.html for an example.

    Note also that the FAQ is old and the solution it proposes is old as well, likely not applicable any more so read with caution.

    The emulator, like any other virtual machine you may have running on your PC is slow. Slower that we would like. But there's a limit still to what can be done about it, after all it loads and runs and entire OS there. You should probably focus on using it efficiently and for example avoid restarting it if not really needed.
