Re: Can we automatically run the application after install

In my case - application did not start. I needed to launch it manually.

Re: Can we automatically run the application after install

Let us wait to see what Mark (RIM) says, but if this happened to me, I would treat it as a bug and report it.

Re: Can we automatically run the application after install

Autostart applications should run automatically after they have been installed.  What could have happened is the application tried to autostart, but didn't have the permissions to do what it wanted and failed with a ControlledAccessException.  Often this can be seen as the application failing to start, but in fact it did start but just wasn't allowed to do what it tried to do. 

 

Check the event log on the BlackBerry (alt+lglg).  You should see an entry for your application being started after it was installed.
