    Problem creating SIS file from VS.NET 2003

    Hi,

    I am using VS.NET 2003 to create the symbian projects. As per the instructions I have installed all the pre-requisites of using Carbide.vs with VS.NET 2003.

    I am able to compile and build my project successfully but when I try to create the SIS file for my application it fails and gives the following error message.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    ERROR: RCMake failed: Build target UREL not supported in platform WINS

    Installation package creation failed
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Please help.

    Thanks in advance
    -Guru

    Re: Problem creating SIS file from VS.NET 2003

    You are trying to create a .sis file for a WINS (emulator) configuration. Select a target configuration (ARMI or THUMB), build and the sis file will be automatically created unless you have disabled .plg file updating and sis file creation.

    If you have disabled .pkg file update, manually edit the pkg file and then create the sis file by right-clicking on the .pkg file and choosing the correct option. If you had pkg file update enabled by not sis file creation, then just do the last step.

    Mitts - Thanks for your quick response. But unfortunately even after changing the settings as mentioned by you my SIS file is not generated automatically and even it failed with the same error message when tried to create it manually.

    Please help.

    Did you change the target to ARMI/THUMB? Pls read the Getting started doc before you continue (found in the /doc dir under Carbide.vs) to make sure you are using the correct workflow.

    Thumbs up Re: Problem creating SIS file from VS.NET 2003

    Thanks Mitts - I am able to create the SIS file now. You were absolutely right regarding the configuration settings at the time of building the solution. Actually I did added the ARMI & THUMB configuration for the project but I compiled it with WINS configuration and hence was struck with the problem.

    I changed the configuration to ARMI before building the solution and it worked!!!

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards,
