    How to install on a different folder within the Device

    Hey guys!

    Every time I or Qt Creator installs my .sis application on the Device, it installs it on a "Installed Applications" folder within the main menu instead of the Applications folder.

    Is there any way to change this behavior? I would like it to be installed on the Applications folder, is that possible? I've seen, after installing many .sis files, that they can even create their own directories within the main menu, take for example Y-Browser which will create a dir "DrJukka.com" on the main menu.

    Best!

    I've never see an app install anywhere EXCEPT in "Applications". Of course, my phones don't have an "Installed Applications" folder.

    I'm thinking you need to be looking at removing something in your PRO or PKG file, vs adding it.

    Re: How to install on a different folder within the Device

    Hey dan!

    Thanks for your prompt answer!

    The phones I'm using do have an Installed Applications folder which are filled with apps, so I'm guessing it may depend on the phone's behavior and configuration as well. My main objective, though, is to be able to install the application on a folder of my own choice. Do you know if thats possible?

    Here is a copy of a .PRO file that installs on "Installed Applications" folder:

    Code:
    QT       += core gui
    
    TARGET = MyProject
    TEMPLATE = app
    
    SOURCES += main.cpp\
            mainwindow.cpp
    
    HEADERS  += mainwindow.h
    
    ICON = icon.svg
    
    FORMS    += mainwindow.ui
    
    CONFIG += mobility
    MOBILITY = 
    
    symbian {
        TARGET.UID3 = 0xe86db845
        # TARGET.CAPABILITY += 
        TARGET.EPOCSTACKSIZE = 0x14000
        TARGET.EPOCHEAPSIZE = 0x020000 0x800000
    }

    Well, the Qt demo apps group install in their own folder, so I guess there's a way to control it. I've never had occasion to investigate the issue, though.

    Re: How to install on a different folder within the Device

    Ah! Looking in the demos\symbianpkgrules.pri file in my 4.6.3 distro I see the line:

    RSS_RULES ="group_name=\"QtDemos\";"

    Presumably something like

    RSS_RULES ="group_name=\"Applications\";"

    Is what you're after.

    (It would be nice if all this stuff were documented in one place.)
