    Unable to locate Image path in Qt Creator

    Hi,
    I have developed an application that can view images from its current drive. I used Qt creator on windows XP.
    The app is running on Symbian Emulator, but when I put the app in the device the app starts but doesn't display the images. I believe the images are not there in the location.

    Normally while using Carbide C++ I set the image path in the pkg file as
    "..\data\50x50\Actors\1.jpg" -"C:\system\200340EC\Hungama\BollywoodRingtones\50x50\Actors\1.jpg"
    and fetch the file from the app.
    Now in Qt creator i got two pkg files
    pictureflow_installer.pkg & pictureflow_template.pkg. where do I add the path of the file and what would be the syntax of the code.
    I tried doing this way in pictureflow_installer.pkg
    Here is the code
    Code:
    "C:/Qt/workspace/Example/pictureflow-0.1.0/pictureflow-qt/pictureflow.sis" - "c:\private\2002CCCE\import\pictureflow.sis"
    "C:/Qt/workspace/Example/pictureflow-0.1.0/pictureflow-build-simulator/AajaNachle_wp03.jpg" - "c:\private\2002CCCE\import\AajaNachle_wp03.jpg"
    "C:/Qt/workspace/Example/pictureflow-0.1.0/pictureflow-build-simulator/BuntyAurBabli_wp04.jpg" - "c:\private\2002CCCE\import\BuntyAurBabli_wp04.jpg"
    "C:/Qt/workspace/Example/pictureflow-0.1.0/pictureflow-build-simulator/Dhoom2_wp07.jpg" - "c:\private\2002CCCE\import\Dhoom2_wp07.jpg"
    
    @"C:/NokiaQtSDK/Symbian/SDK/smartinstaller.sis",(0x2002CCCD)
    But did not work.



    Please suggest me

    Don't modify the package file!

    Use something like this in your .pro file:
    Code:
    image.sources  = C:/Qt/workspace/Example/pictureflow-0.1.0/pictureflow-build-simulator/Dhoom2_wp07
    image.path =  ./import/Dhoom2_wp07
    DEPLOYMENT += image

    Re: Unable to locate Image path in Qt Creator

    Here is my .pro file
    Code:
    TARGET = pictureflow
    TEMPLATE = app
    HEADERS = pictureflow.h
    SOURCES = pictureflow.cpp main.cpp
    
    image.sources  = C:/Qt/workspace/Example/pictureflow-0.1.0/pictureflow-build-simulator/Dhoom2_wp07.jpg
    image.path =  ./import/Dhoom2_wp07.jpg
    DEPLOYMENT += image
    but the images are not there. will this put the image in the default dir?

    It should put the image in <default dir>/import/ . I presumed this is where you want it.

    I am installing my app in C drive of the device. and as mentioned below i am also putting the images in the default dir, but the images are not displaying.
    do you need any more information so that you can figure out whether the sis and the images are installing in the same dir or not?

    Re: Unable to locate Image path in Qt Creator

    Well, if you don't want them in the "import" subdirectory, remove that from the spec. Just say "image.path = ."

    The exe and data files WILL NOT be installed in the same directory. The data files go into a "private" directory for the application, whereas all the exe (executable) files go into a special system directory.
