Delete application on runnning

Hi,

I have developed an application that is running all time. If you close application, it requestBackground, and if you reset your device it starts up automatically.
My question is, how can I close/delete this kind of application?

I have searched at forums and webs but I haven't any response.

Thanks in advance,

regards.

Re: Delete application on runnning

You can find all modules under

Options->device->Application Management.

 

You can delete from here.

 

Have you tried this.

 

Thanks.

Yes, I have tried it, but when an application is running you can only edit permissions, not delete.

 

Thanks so much for your response!

Re: Delete application on runnning

I dont think so,

 

Any way if you want to delete application,

 

You can delete using JavaLoader also even it is running.

 

ex:

javaloader -usb erase -f  [moduleName with out extension]

 

 

Thanks

I can't use javaloader because I need an enduser solution.

 

Well, you're right: it's possible delete an application that is running (I have tried with another application).

My problem isn't the fact that the application is running, the problem is the "auto-run on startup" option. If your application runs after a device reset you can not delete it while is running.

Can anyone tell me if this is so? and if I need check this option, can I let users delete my application??

 

Thanks in advance!!

 

EDIT: Simon, I know, but all applications aren't removable in any time by any user.....

Re: Delete application on runnning

Well, after some investigations and read this post: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/Deleting-an-autostart-app/td-p/1436287, I obtain the next conclusion:

 

-if you install an autostart app with Eclipse, you won't can delete it (only with javaloader). But don't worry, when users install it from Desktop or App World they will be able to delete it. I don't know why....

 

I leave here the solution in case anyone cares, thanks,

 

regards!!
