      Description

      Follow-up to the resolved bug report from: https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTMOBILITY-1836
      Another issue has appeared, which needs to be documented:

      Installation drive of the ndefhandler .xml file
      ------------------------------------------------
      Ndef app autostart on tag touch only works if the ndefhandler.xml file is on the C: drive. If the file is created on another drive, the QtM tag handler doesn't seem to find it.

      The code snippet in the QtM documentation always copies the xml file to the app install drive - which is E: by default when installing apps through the Nokia Store: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.2/qnearfieldmanager.html#symbian-3

      Current (non-working) documentation:

      symbian

      { ndefhandler.sources = myapplication.xml ndefhandler.path = /private/2002AC7F/import/ DEPLOYMENT += ndefhandler }

      Proposed documentation fix:

      symbian

      { ndefhandler.sources = %APPNAME%.xml ndefhandler.path = c:/private/2002AC7F/import/ DEPLOYMENT += ndefhandler }

      This is important to fix, as with the current code snippet no app downloaded from the Nokia Store would work with ndef autostart, unless the developers have the right deployment statement in their .pro file.
      Autostart also works if the xml file is on C: but the app is installed on E:
