Installing big (2Mb) application to emulator

Hi! I have an application with something like 2 mb of resource files. As the application is big enough, when I package it, the packager creates a lot of .cod files of 50kb each.


When I try the application on the emulator, it doesn't appear to install. It just doesn't display on the installed applications list. I also tried uploading the cod, jad and jar files to my homepage and downloading and installing (through the jad file, accessing it with the web browser) in the emulator, but still nothing.


I don't have an actual Blackberry device to try the application there. Smiley Sad


What should I do? is 2 Mb too much?  Smiley Sad


thanks a lot!

Re: Installing big (2Mb) application to emulator

The simulator can handle that big app, just drag and drop the cods to the simulator's screen.

After installation, it shoud appear in the simulator's "Downloads" folder, if you can't find it, check your simulator's "options -> application management", all installed apps are listed there. If you still can't find it, maybe something wrong with you app. Post you app's link, may be we can help you.
