    Auto starting an embedded application

    Dear Folks,

    We are developing a Symbian application using S60 3rd Edition SDK for Symbian OS, Feature Pack 2.

    In that we are embedding an application( which is embedded in "sis" mode ) which is designed to auto start when the main application has started running...

    We could auto start the embedded application if its made to run individually where as the auto start is not happening when its in embedded mode...

    could anyone suggest how could we auto start the embedded application when its in embedded mode...

    regards,
    Sundar

    We are embedding a console application in our main QT application and the embedded console application is also a QT application... startDetached method is still not making the embedded application to autostart ...

    we are adding the following lines to the .pro of our main QT application to embed this console based QT application

    ###################################################

    embedded_deployments = "; Embed Qt dependencies" \
    "@\"$${EPOCROOT}epoc32/Sis_File/Sync.sis\",(0xE39614A3)"
    default_deployment.pkg_prerules += embedded_deployments

    ###################################################

    is there any other suggestions?...

    Re: Auto starting an embedded application

    Can you tell if it got installed?

    Also, check the return code. If the app is being started OK but dying immediately the RC will be true. It will be false if the app isn't being started at all.

    (And, on looking at the spec, I see that startDetached is static, so you could simply say

    QProcess::startDetached(...

    )
