    Installing my application in a Symbian platform

    Hi, just one fast-noob question.

    Here I've seen you need to install Qt in the device you want to install your application... is that always like that? do I have to install Qt manually to all my friend's devices?

    thanks you!

    Yes, until Qt comes preinstalled with the device firmware. The first Nokia Symbian phone with Qt preinstalled will be the N8. For older phone models, you need to include Qt with your application, or have people install Qt before your application themselves.

    You should also take a look to Nokia Qt Smart Installer, it's a tool that will allow you to create installers that automatically searches for the Qt libraries that your application needs, and it will download it if aren't already in the device.
    This will make posible to ditribute your applications without to include the Qt libraries. It's currently in its second beta. And it seems that will be released before the new Nokia devices with Qt preinstalled.

    thanks!

    so I will need to add the libraries or include Qt... if I do it, will I be able to distribute my program in Ovi Store (for instance)?

    As the Smart Installer is still in beta, you can't use it yet for applications you wish to distribute via Ovi Store now.

    Also, Ovi Store won't accept application installation packages (SISX files) with the full Qt SISX files embedded/included with your application, because then your SISX file becomes too big.

    In essence, this means that you cannot distribute Qt apps via Ovi Store at all, until either Smart Installer is finalized, or there are devices with Qt preinstalled in the firmware.
