    Large resources in app.

    Hi!

    Can anyone help me?

    I have wrote Qt app. Qt libraries version is 4.7.3. App has over 12 Mb image resources.
    Whenever I try execute this app on Symbian^1 device (Nokia 5250 and Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.), it was crashed with the message "Error: 'Failed to create the process (verify that the executable and all required DLLs have been transferred) (an attempt to allocate memory has failed)' Code: -4". If I remove some amount of resources from my app, it wasn't crashed. How I can correctly deploy this amount of resources in my app? There is any limitations to app size or app data block size? And how I can avoid this restrictions?

    What is the reason?

    Unfortunately currently the Qt Creator handles resources (in qrc files) so that they are included in the EXE, thus making it very big.

    What kind of resources are you using? If you are using images, you could simply include them as files and load them from there.

    By using DEPLOYMENT in your .pro file.

    Code:
    # Add all files from the images subfolder into sis package
    imageFiles.sources = images/*
    # imageFiles.path = ...
    DEPLOYMENT += imageFiles
    Above, no path is defined, so the default deployment folder (your application's private folder) is used. In your code, you can refer to the images with just the filename, no path information needed.

    Thank you very much for rapid response!
    My images are placed into the local folder "images/illustrations" into the my project directiry.

    This is the sceleton of my .pro file:

    Code:
    imageFiles.source = images/illustrations/*
    symbian:DEPLOYMENT += imageFiles
    Images hasn't deployed in the .sis file.
    Where I have mistaken?
