Not able to install and run Air application on PlayBook Virtual Machine

Hello all,

 

I followed the steps from on these pages http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/21877/Configure_the_BlackBerry_PlayBook_simula... to enable the deploment and tes of the HelloWorld App on the virtual machine.

 

Device password is set, ip addresses are correct.

 

And I get the error :

 

The Flash Builder debugger failed to connect to the running application

1. For in-browser applications ...

2. For debugging on a mobile device...

 

Any ideas?

hey charly,

 

what is the IP of the simulator and have you tried to ping that IP from your computer via command prompt or terminal depending on which operating system you are on?

Hi Charly, 

 

i only get this message when i try to run the debug mode. Try just running it with the "play button". Have to figure out why my debug is not working. So far it looks like the PB sim can't connect back to the debugger.

I managed to resolve this by deactivating my firewall as the local vmware network was setup as a public network in win7. I noticed my error was slightly different from your error but still it says can't connect so you may be able to solve your problem by disabling your firewall as well.

Would this hold true for running on mac os/x?

Re: Not able to install and run Air application on PlayBook Virtual Machine

OK I got it to work on my mac. The trick is in the Settings -> Network of the Simulator you need to select the 3rd option which is "Create a private network available only to the Mac (host only)" This solved my problem after a lot of headaches.
