Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

After having suffered from the "wrong username/password/timezone" problem quite a while ago (http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-SDK-for-Adobe-AIR/Error-Username-or-password-is-inv...), I finally took the time to upgrade to v0.9.3 of the simulator + SDK.

 

After installation, in Burrito I changed the old SDK version to point to the new one (Go to Preferences > Flash Builder > Target Platforms > BlackBerry Tablet OS).

 

Now, it seems that I got rid of the initial "wrong username/password/timezone" msg - instead, I am getting a "invalid password"-only message:

20110302_Screenshot_WrongPasswordProblem.png

 

Well, I would have said the message says it all. So I changed the password, doublechecked everything, and provided the correct new password in the Run Configuration in Burrito. However, the message just doesn't disappear.

 

What more could I try than to change the device password, enable it and provide it in Burrito??? I'm really running out of ideas here....

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

hey vaiomike,

 

that problems seems to be following you everywhere! what i've seen is that even though people install the new simulator, they sometimes still have the older one installed and run that instead by accident (sometimes VMware runs when u have the old one on autostart). the best way to check is to see if your version of the simulator has the browser on it. good luck!

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

yeah, I know, I came across that suggestion before. but unfortunately(?), the correct simulator is started (= I have the browser icon there).

 

(Although you are right...I have never uninstalled/deleted any old versions...meaning my machine still has the old simulator versions + SDK versions somewhere on it's drive; but I thought, as long as I'm starting the right simulator and pointing to the correct paths, this shouldn't be a big deal...)

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

I just reinstalled the simulator. created a brand-new device password. created a new HelloWorld project in Burrito. same error. really frustrating :-(

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

Try using the command line to launch the application.  At least it will rule out Burrito as being the cause.

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

great suggestion.

 

fails as well though. maybe sbdy finds any more clues from following command line output?

 

 

Using default icon: D:\Programs\SoftwareEngineering\IDEs\FBBurrito\Adobe Flash B
uilder Burrito\sdks\blackberry-tablet-sdk-0.9.3\bin\..\samples\icons\blackberry-
tablet-default-icon.png
Invalid manifest file C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Local\Temp\bar7430698554960827026
.MF.
Invalid value '0.0.0.0' for Package-Version.
Package created: BurritoTest093.bar
Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

 

 

What's up with this "invalid manifest file" and "invalid package-version" messages?

(As a result, I suppose re-installing Burrito wouldn't help either?)

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

Are you including the password in the command?

 

What is the full command that you are using?

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

And you're running the command where the .bar file is in?  Are the other files in the bin-debug directory and are you using the -C parameter in the command?
