How do you regenerate the x86 folder?

I'm developing a Blackberry application with a friend. We're using source control and always have trouble with x86 conflicts. It's my understanding that this x86 folder is purely for running the application on the simulator. Would it be possible to simply regenerate this folder on our separate machines when necessary?

 

This problem directly relates to:

But no solution was ever reached. 

 

Please let me know if I can clarify.

Re: How do you regenerate the x86 folder?

if you're using Git

your .gitignore should include

/arm/
/x86/
/config.pri
/.device
*.qm
/assets/.assets.index

The x86 folder will regenerate whenever you compile with the debug-simulator configuration.

Re: How do you regenerate the x86 folder?

As you said, x86 folder is created when we debug as simulator.

It is automatically generated, so no need to put it on as you say on source control like svn.
