Re: Can't install Blackberry Playbook simulator and AIR SDK on Windows 8

Are you not dual booting with your old OS? You'd probably be better off using a released version of Windows - I imagine most of these installers and products haven't yet been fully tested for Windows 8 support.

Re: Can't install Blackberry Playbook simulator and AIR SDK on Windows 8

It's way way way too early to be using Win8 for development purposes. It's not even a beta or release candidate yet, just a demo. Much of the under-the-hood stuff is still missing or not functional. Use Win7.

For a FYI, the compatibility mode works for Win 8 RTM w/ the WebWorks SDK as well. Thanks ravi-kyaliapps for the suggestion, it's one of those rare times the compatibility mode comes in handy *and* works!
