Last two or three days I've tried to install Symbian SDK && Carbide.c++ (get those from: http://www.symbian.org/) into my laptop with Windows Vista. So, here are some impressions about that:
- Leave the default paths. So, install Perl to: C:\Perl, Carbide.c++ to C:\Symbian, and SDK to C:\S60. Because otherwise you might expierence a lot of problems.
- Work as administrator while developing the software. Because Carbide.c++ likes that. :)
- DO NOT use Windows Vista, USE Windows XP instead. There is a patch for Windows Vista available, but I could not make my system work with the patch. Windows XP works better. I've tried to reinstall Symbian SDK twise in Windows Vista. Both times it failed to work.
