    How to build an .EXE and no .APP

    Hi everybody,

    i am new to SymbianOS and this discussion board and have little question.
    i've seen that some developers build an exe-file in Carbide.c++ for debug on windows and i got no idea how to configure Carbide.c++ so that it builds an exe-file with an (embedded?) emulator.

    i started a new project in "S60_2nd_FP3-SDK" and build the project. after that the emulator starts with an app-file but not with the prefered exe-file.

    How can i create an exe-file of my project?

    Thanks a lot and sorry for my stupid question.

    Why do you want to build .exe? If you need it for debugging only, you can use .app too.

    In pre-S60 3rd Edition, the main application is usually .app (there are a few developers who developer .exe too, but not so many).

    It looks like the exe-debug starts much faster than the emulator with an app-file.

    does no one know how to build an exe-file for debugging?

    thanx for your help!

    There are some examples in S60 SDK about exe files (look at Symbian examples at \Examples folder).

    Not exactly, .exe targets in pre-3rd edition run without (instead of) epoc.exe. Check the Examples folder or http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...ad.php?t=80989 for a really short example.
