Re: .exe files on nokia 5233

Note, though, that inside the .sis/.sisx files (which is just an installation package/archive file format), the Symbian executables have a .exe extension, too (as of Symbian OS v9 and onwards).


However, the Symbian .exe files are not the same as, e.g., Windows .exe files; Symbian doesn't run Windows apps, and Windows doesn't run Symbian apps.


Note also, that older .sis files intended for earlier Symbian versions (e.g., S60 2nd Edition, Series 80, or UIQ), also won't run on the 5233, even if they are also .sis files (i.e., what's inside the .sis files matters, too, not just the file name extension).
