BuildPRC not working - need help using it

Discuss PocketC for Palm OS (including Desktop Edition)

Postby Ben Horley on Fri Feb 23, 2001 11:23 am

Hi there

I have just registered and am trying to use BuildPRC.

I do my development in the Windows Palm Desktop, synch to my Palm and compile.

How do I get the compiled app back to my PC so I can use BuildPRC.

Is the compiled app a Palm database that I can synch with BackupBuddy or do I have to do it any other way?

I also sometimes use the Palm emulator. I can use that to export a database to the PC. Can I just export the compiled app as a database name, then use BuildPRC? If so, what format should I save the database as, ie PRC, PDB, etc?

What you do is open the PocketC runtime on the device. Then select the app you want to send to your computer, and tap menu/applet/backup. Choose yes and the applet will be backed up onto your computer into the palm\usrname folder. I don't remember the exact sub folder, so just do a find on that folder to find the exact backup.

Hope this helps.
