Hi Jack,

You can always try to build it by using the Symbian build process.

On the command line in the same directory as the build. bat file

1.) type "bldmake bldfiles"
This will process the bld.inf file (you can open that file up to see  
what it does, I think it determines which projects to build)

When it's done, it will create a file named Abld.bat, that is what you  
use to compile the source etc...

2.) type abld build winscw udeb for a debug build or abld build armv5  
urel for a release.

I'm sure you'll have tons of errors, but this might help get started.

Joe Ligman

PS: One other thing, you need to have the Symbian SDK installed, and  
the EPOCROOT environment variable defined, I imagine the document  
listed above explains it.
