How to specify Vendor name, size and version



  • Hi All,
    i'm creating the sis file with smart installer for my app and i'd like to know how and where should i specify vendor name, application size and version.
    I've seen that i can simply use:
    @VERSION = 1.0.0@
    I've read it in another article 1 minutes ago
    But now i' not able to understand where and how specify app size and vendor name.
    Thanks to all



  • UPDATE: I read now you have mobile app so i don't know if this can work. Sorry.

    Example, create a file called my.rc, the file my.rc is composed by this:
    @
    IDI_ICON1 ICON DISCARDABLE "logo64.ico"

    1 VERSIONINFO
    FILEVERSION 1,0,0,0
    PRODUCTVERSION 1,0,0,0
    FILEOS 0x50004
    FILETYPE 0x1
    {
    BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
    {
    BLOCK "040904E4"
    {
    VALUE "CompanyName", "mycompany name"
    VALUE "FileDescription", "myprogram 1.0"
    VALUE "FileVersion", "1.0.0.0"
    VALUE "ProductName", "myprogram"
    VALUE "ProductVersion", "1.0.0.0"
    VALUE "OriginalFilename", "myapp.exe"
    }
    }
    }@
    the
    @IDI_ICON1 ICON DISCARDABLE "logo64.ico"@ is for add icon image to the executable.
    Than in your .pro file write this line:
    @
    RC_FILE = myapp.rc
    @

  • This is the Microsoft sollution. The rc is the microsoft resource format. If you can use it for mobile apps that run on another system then MS Windows Mobile, it will not help. It's a pure MS solution...



  • This don't work for linux?

  • Afaik not. That's why we created a custom solution for Linux in my old department. You can put the text somewhere as static text in yout binaries, but the RC compiler is a windows specific thing. Also this version SDK to read the versions. That's why you find it on msdn (Microsoft developer network).

    If you look "here":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.6.2/appicon.html you can guess that it's only windows. I didn#t find some place that explicitly states that, but I'm pretty sure it is :-) Otherwise we would have used it some time ago...



  • This is for Symbian, right?
    You just edit the .PRO or .PKG files.

    For vendorinfo, I use:
    @
    vendorinfo =
    "%{"Sacha"}"
    ":"Sacha""
    @

    For icon, I use:
    @
    ICON = app.svg
    @

    Note: Has to be an SVG (Tiny?).


  • Moderators

    Which platform are you targeting? xsacha already provided some clue on how to set this in symbian. In Maemo you will need to change the packaging scripts (as each package generated may be using a different version which may or may not differ from the version of the project).

    From the O.P., a sis file. Must mean Symbian?

    Yes, it has to be tiny.

    Tried to cheat with percentage encoding, but this forum is too smart to fall for that.
    I trust resourceful persons to find a way to access the link ;)



  • I also did, but first I only clicked on it... :-(
    But I managed :-)

  • If you copy it completly (including _in_S60_3rd_edition), it works.



  • Working link:

    "How to create application icon SVG in S60 3rd edition":http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.php/How_to_create_application_icon(SVG)_in_S60_3rd_edition

    Use Url-encoding symbols for difficult link :)



  • could you shortly describe, how you encoded the symbols?

    EDIT: sorry, I had to read it twice.... Now it's clear. You mean the link function from the forum editor, right? this quotaions marks double point thing...
