Animation DLLs (DLLs with targettype ANI and with server-side classes derived from CAnim, CSpriteAnim, or CWindowAnim require extensive capabilities on S60 3rd Edition.

Platform security defines that a DLL must run at the same capability level as the loading process. In case of animation plug-ins, the loading process is the window server (WSERV), so the animation DLL must have (at least) the following capabilities: PowerMgmt ProtServ ReadDeviceData WriteDeviceData


Most use cases can be implemented without writing a separate animation DLL.
