This may be something that I missed but couldn't find an answer to my problem. I just followed all of the directions in the Tablet_OS_Getting_Started_Guide for installing the simulator under VMware player. At the end of the "New Virtual Machine Wizard", when you click "Finish", the instructions says:
17. When your virtual machine starts for the first time, you are prompted to overwrite /dev/hd0 with the QNX®demonstration. Type Y, then press ENTER.
18. After the simulator boots, click I have finished installing.
I didn't get the prompt to overwrite /dev/hd0, instead I got a message from vmware saying, "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point." I get a black screen, after I click the vmware message, nothing happens. Resetting or powering off and on the virtual machine gets the same result. I was wondering if I missed something or how to get the simulator running correctly. Thanks.

Not seen this myself, but it looks like it's an issue with VMWare rather than the simulator per-se.
If you are running the VM from a laptop, first start might be to disable SpeedStep :
If that doesn't do it, it could be an error with the vmx file, try searching the vmware kb, or posting on the communities forum there.
