    SDK not starting

    Hi,

    I have been using S60 SDK 3rd edition FP1 from some time. But I have this major issue from a couple of months now. The Emulator just wont start properly. I select Emulator from the start menu but it wont show up. If it does show up, it disappears in seconds. If it does n`t disappear, it wont start up. As in it ll have blank screen and the restart button does n`t help either. After 100s of tries, it does start up some how.
    But now, if it does start up , the python application wont run any script now. This is a new problem though. It just hangs.
    I guess there is a problem with the epoc.exe file. How do I resolve this. And also i cant find epocwind.out to know the error.

    TIA
    Chirag Narula

    Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling the S60 SDK?

    Seems to me you have a DEP related problem - I had the exact same problem with S60 SDK 5th ed. Try turning off DEP for epoc.exe. See this thread for more information.

    You can find the emulator log at %TEMP%\epocwind.out (usually "C:\Documents and Settings\*USERNAME*\Local Settings\Temp\epocwind.out")

    I turned off DEP for epoc.exe but the problem prevails.
    Yeah I can see the epocwind.out file. And I am not quite able to understand it. What am I supposed to look for in it ?
    Also I tried to run it after disabling the sound driver but didnt work .

    And also I did not try to reinstall thinking it would be the last option. Should I ?

    The last lines, probably - they should show what happened just before the end of execution, and that might give you a hint of the problem (try to search for those last lines on a search engine).

    That's up to you. It might solve your problem relatively fast, but then you might never know what caused it in the first place. OTOH, researching the cause of the problem might or might not let you find it's source, and will probably take more time and effort.

    Try this it may help you . if you are using Win7 or vista
    1- If you are using kaspersky antivirus shut it down
    2- run epoc.exe as administrator

    Also give it some time to start before the Symbian OS loaded and launch

    hope this help you
