Thank you for your reply.
For the conversion, the IDE produces a 'Convert Project" dialog which says
"Project 'Preview.mcp' needs to be converted. Some target settings need to be updated to the current version.
"Some preference panels have changed and the target settings need to be updated to the new format. The project will be backed up as 'Preview.old.mcp'. Do you want to convert the project?
Answering "OK" performs the conversion. Afterwards, compilation is not successful until the C/C++ language Prefix file is set to PalmOS_Headers and the Palm OS Suppost and CW for Palm OS Support paths are added to System Access Paths. The target wass changed to Palm OS 68K, and the post linker setting cleared, as suggested by the documentation.
The project uses a '.rsrc' file provided as part of the older project. Attempts manipulate, regenerate or otherwise force the resource to be included as a link component do not appear to have been successful. The new project compiles to approximately 26K while the old project is approximatley 40K.
I will Google additional information on the Palm device error message, as well.
Thanks again for your reply and your patience. As a CW/Palm newbie, this has been frustrating.
Your new, converted project might not have a setting to recognize and correctly invoke the right tool to process resource files. If this is the case, it might also explain the NULL pointer error at runtime.
Compare the File Mappings settings in your old and new projects. Specifically, make sure the entry for resource files is the same.
Let me know if this helps.
