Deploying Symbian Qt Applications on the phone

Posted on: April 7, 2010

As a reminder to myself, these are the steps to deploy an Qt application on the mobile phone.

  1. Project settings:
    1. Add new build configuration S60_5th_Edition_SDK_v1.0 (Qt 4.6.0) Release
    2. Change its Tool Chain to be WINSCW

    3. Add a new Run Setting (ProjectName in Symbian Emulator)
    4. Open the project file ( and add the following to enable network usage:
      symbian {
          TARGET.CAPABILITY = NetworkServices
  2. Mobile deployment:
    1. Without smart installer (Qt 4.6.0)
      • Open command prompt
      • Navigate to project path
      • Run:
        qmake && make release-gcce
      • Then run:
        make sis
      • You now have your .sis file ready. Make sure qt in already installed on the device
    2. With smart installer (Qt 4.6.2+) steps
