    You have available different SDK supporting different OS version. So why would you want to do something so manually??

    Thank you for replying...
    Ammm...
    I want to develop software on - RTL language
    the emulator does not support it or it is not installed ...
    Also, does the emulator can simulate a USB connection between him and the computer?
    To work with OVI for example??

    Thank you very much

    What is RTL language ?

    Anyway, different development languages have different SDKs still, but I have not seen anything that would have something called RTL.

    Also the emulator does not have all hardware stuff that is found from devices, so you can not debug those parts with it, anyway, you can always try on device debugging instead.

    1. When you say "RTL" language, do you mean "Right To Left" human language (Arab or Hebrew)?

    2. All recent emulators can emulate the following:

    - Internet connection (by using the Internet connection of the PC running the emulator)

    - Phone to Phone communication between multiple running emulator programs on the same PC (using "Nokia Connectivity Framework", which is installed with the kits).

    3. The emulator is actually a special version of the Symbian OS compiled to run as a Windows program on an x86 CPU, copying OS files from a real phone with an ARM CPU would not work. This is also why the build tools for C++ Symbian applications requires different compiler configurations (actually different compilers!) for the emulator and the real phone.

    4. There is a relatively new project at symbian.org called "Syborg" which uses an ARM emulator to run the real ARM compiled Symbian OS on the PC.

    5. When testing Java programs for Symbian phones you usually don't need to worry about these details, and you may even be able to test your programs in the generic Java Mobile / MIDL emulator from Sun's "Wireless Toolkit", which is not a Nokia or Symbian thing and would not be discussed in this forum other than this brief mention.

    We do offer some language plug-ins for S60 SDKs for Symbian OS, one of them being Arabic. If you really need another language then maybe you should try ask for it from Nokia (through a support case).
