OS5 app not starting in OS6



I got a strange problem going on. I've been working on an application that downloads an XML, parses it and shows the information coming from the XML in a MainScreen. Nothing fancy.


It works in the OS 5 simulator, but it doesn't on the 0S6 BlackBerry 9800. The application can be installed, the icon is shown but the application doesn't launch.


I've got another application with very much the same functionality (it just downloads another XML).


I've searched the forum, but can't find anything resembling this behaviour. Anyone who got hints?

Re: OS5 app not starting in OS6

I get multiple  "a System - CMM: Velo_Antwerp(6883) no sig from 0x33" and "F Application Control - IvHS" and "F Application Control - IvHG".


Then it says "class ...HttpRepository$PersistentInfo" multiply defined" which gave a Linker error: "VerifyError" for Velo_Antwerp.


Another Linker  error was given because of class net.rim.device.apps.api.messaging.stickymessages.StickyMessageModel not found.


Pretty nasty, I think. Smiley Happy




(Velo_Antwerp is the application name)

I'm pretty sure you're going to have to compile this on the 6.0.0 JDE. You might get lucky and it will be compatible with OS 5.

Re: OS5 app not starting in OS6

You have two apps with the same class, which is persistable. "Same" means the same package and same name, rename one of the classes and you are good to go.
