    In S60 3rd ed, is it possible to start one of the native apps from my console app?

    I would like to pragmatically open the native music player and play a file from my console app. I am using an E51 device (3rd ed, FP1). Is there a standard way of doing this? Any code examples?

    Thanks,

    ~Mike

    RApaLsSession::GetAllApps can probably find it for you. But you can also try checking the open source Symbian code, it probably uses the same UID. The name of the component in the Symbian^3 code is mpx as I know.

    ok cool... but is there also a way to launch an app from background without UID just by passing the app name???

    RProcess::Create does that (though it needs the name of the executable "mpx.exe", not the visible name of the application)
