    In the Tools section above. S60 3rd FP1 (Symbian 9.2) is in the Archive, newer ones are in the 'normal' section.

    There is no emulator which would allow you tho run Symbian applications from SIS files released for real phones. You need a phone for that.
    This is a site for software developers so if you are interested, download the SDK and its emulator and build and run your own application with it.

    Hmm, I am sorry, Lucian is right. You can succeed with Java applications, but .sis/x will not work.

    Re: Symbian emulator on Windows

    So you want to say that there is no way to run sis on pc?
    Only the source code can be run?
    But why?
    Why not a simple emulator? For example, as emulators to run the Jar.

    Well if you have the sources, then here are some hints how you can do it http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ition_emulator

    If you have the source code then you do not need that solution in 99.999999999% of the cases either. Just build and run ...

    Re: Symbian emulator on Windows

    I must admit that I do agree with Lucian regarding that 99.999999999% case. I havent had the need to do it either, so I am still in that 99.999999999%. Maybe you too are NeutronUA. Go right ahead and just built it and run it :)

    To be honest I have not tried the Symbian+QEMU-magics, but having it and the open source stuff, sooner or later someone will certainly forge a binary emulation environment (or already did, I have not checked).

    Yes, eventually such thing will be possible, but not now/yet.

    It is, of course, quite possible to create a full hardware emulator today, where you can drop device binaries (even firmware images) and run them without the real hardware.

    It is just that neither Symbian (the old Ltd or the new Foundation), or Nokia, or any other manufacturer (like Samsung or Sony Ericsson), or any semiconductor manufacturer (like TI or others) have yet seen sufficient need to have one.

    Of course, there'd be many benefits to such a hardware emulator even for device manufacturers, but the benefits have so far - apparently - not been enough to justify the cost/effort for building and maintaining such an emulator.

    Re: Symbian emulator on Windows

    As I see there won't be Symbian OS emulator for Windows to run .sis/x applicaton to test on a PC. I don't want to put everything on the phone to see is it the same like describe it, but I'll have to.
