    Emulator main screen overwrites application screen

    I have a problem ..
    Whenever I launch my app ( a graphic app ), the Emulator only shows the app screen in 1-2 second(s). After that, the main screen of the Emulator appears and overwrites my app screen.
    I already tried to make an endless loop inside my app:
    while (1) {
    ....
    }
    But everything is the same !

    Could anyone help me on this problem ?
    I'm using series 60 SDK, Symbian 7.0
    Thanks

    This is old, but annoying so I'll give a quick fix:

    I already tried to make an endless loop inside my app:
    Running the emulator from Carbide doesn't run the application, it loads the app on to the emulator. The 1-2 seconds is loading it, and then you can look up installed apps on the emulator to find your program to run it. This is done so you can recompile without having to load the emulator every time.

    Re: Emulator main screen overwrites application screen

    Note that this thread is a pretty old one (3+ years), in Symbian 7-8 it was not possible to launch the applications "directly", since they were DLL-s, and the emulator was the only .exe file. Also note that the IDE was not Carbide that time.

    So things have changed since then, check http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...arbide.c%2B%2B if you want to know more about possibilities.
