Well, seems quite a few people having problem with the emulator, which shows nothing but blank screen. Some of them get it fixed by disabling the sound card. Unfortunately, despite the fact that I don't have any sound card installed on my PC, i still got the "blank screen emulator" problem.
Here's my details:
I downloaded and installed S60_2nd_FP3 SDK, set system environment variable EPOCROOT to be \Symbian\8.1a\S60_2nd_FP3 (not including C: as described in the document: Symbian_OS_Getting_Started_v1_0_en.pdf).
And then just simply try to run the emulator, but all it shows is just the blank screen. And then i checked the log files, which says there's a problem in the ini files, so I checked through the ini files:
And noticed that the it specifies the virtual drives as below:
Although I don't really know what drive D is on the symbian OS (i only know C and Z drives as described on the document), I do know there's no directory C:\Symbian\8.1a\S60_2nd_FP3\Epoc32\wins\d on my PC, instead, I have C:\Symbian\8.1a\S60_2nd_FP3\Epoc32\winscw\d, so i thought give it a try, turn wins to be winscw.
However, still no luck, on the log file still saying problem with ini file, screen still blank.
And also, folks, I don't see anywhere doing the virtual drives mapping for C and Z. Where do I specify such virtual drives mapping?? I assume for S60_2nd_FP3, ther virtual drives mapping for c and z should be
\Epoc32\winscw\c and \Epoc32\release\winscw\udeb\z respectively?
Thanks a lot for your comments\replies.
