    I'm supposing that the parameters that the Ovi store application would require in order to show any particular item has not been publiced, also could indeed be that it depends on different versions of the application. Anyhow, if you don't need it to open any specific stuff in it, then you could try launching it as you would launch any other application. the actual method would then of course depend on the technology you are using for making your application.

    Hi,
    I use this line in my QT apps:

    QDesktopServices:penUrl(QUrl("http://store.ovi.com/content/44998"));
    exit(0);

    Works decently
    The lines above are the best I have to offer.If anyone of you is of more advanced knowledge, I ask for your patience and understanding! - unknown arab poet

    Ciao,

    same idea in Flash Lite, getURL("http://store.ovi.com/content/46912");
    it will open the browser and automatically will start the OVI store client of the phone

    that is problem
    I don't want to open ovi store in web browser. If it don't switch to application
    Some of my customers reported that they bought my game from web page of ovi store. Application is too complicate, I don't know
    That is reason why I want to open application in ovi store app directly

    Ciao,

    the phone will detect that you are going to the ovi store and launch the client.
    Do some tests and see if it's fine for your needs
