    Generating a sis file

    Dear friends,I'm a new developper in the Symbian community.
    I found some problems in retrieving dedicated information about the SDK ans in particular about the creation of a Sis file.
    I ask you if i can create a sis file and install it the file system of Nokia 7650.The real question is the content of the sis file.Can i realize a file *.pkg with only a text file(for example) and generate a sys file setting some parameters like the phoe file pattern.

    RE: Generating a sis file

    Hi, this is easy stuff.

    1. create a simple (app).pkg file by a text editor (look at examples).
    2. execute "makesis (app).pkg"
    3. it will create you a .SIS file
    4. transfer that to your device (goes to inbox)
    5. click the SIS message in your inbox and it will be installed
