i have compiled succesfully my old 3rd edition SDK project with the new SDK 5th edition. It compiled, installed and worked on the phone.
The phone is my old N73.
I have compiled the STL example of 5th S60 SDK. It compiled but didn't install.
The first problem is that the installation fails without giving me any information at all. It simply says that can't install the app (i selected the phone memory as the destination for the app, as always).
The app is signed with the key, certificate pair used for my previous project.
How can i understand what is happening?
The second problem is that i am writing an application that uses STL a lot. So i need support for STL.
It seems to me that STL is supported with 5th edition of the SDK, but i would like to know: if my old working 3rd edtion SDK app starts to use the 5th edition SDK + STL, will i be able to install it on every phone, as before?
Since STL is a software lib, the answer, in my mind, is "yes, of course". Maybe the I/O part of STL could be problematic, but can't think of serious problems with STL working on N73 or even older devices.
