I have just made the transition from using VC++ to Codewarrior for Symbian development. I have an application that build perfectly both from the command line gcc complier and (once the project was created) from within the Dev Studio IDE. When I build the same code in the Codewarrior IDE and SDK I get problems.
First off it seems that Codewarrior is not compiling my resources correctly. What I observed was that I could build with no errors inside the IDE but when I launched the emulator my application now had the default application icon in the “Menu” application and it wouldn’t launch.
I read a recent thread on this forum where a number of people discussed build issues with resources and it seemed the bottom line was to build outside of CodeWarrior whenever a resource was changed and then go back to CodeWarrior to debug.
I can still build with no problems from the command line (using the CW version of the series 60 2.1 sp2 SDK) and run my application in the emulator from outside CW with no problems. However if I try to run my application from the emulator having built from the gcc command line the IDE crashes. If I try to rebuild from within the IDE and launch the emulator I see my application with the default icon again and it won’t run up.
Does anyone have any thoughts what may be the issue?
