I made the app in Flash professional. I used a .bat file to compile into the bar file. This works n someone else's computer but throws erros on mine.
Messages recieved in the command line:
Invalid manifest file C: ...........(the path to the file)bar558007970575787244.MF
Invalid value ' 1.0.0' for package-version
Package created: book1.bar
Error: Cannot connect: Connection to https://192.168.197.255 refused. You may have to reboot the target
I have tried rebooting both the machine and the VMplayer 3X and re-powered the player everytime.
The app will not appear in the simulator.
OS: win7 64bit
thanks in advance

You should have tried the search function first. A couple of users experienced problems like yours.
The most common causes were:

Thank you for the reply.
I have researched the posting in the forum. and did not find what I was looking for. The address is checked and doubled checked. Where do i access the network configurations for VMWare?
I don't even know what ipconfig is. I am only a beginner.
To tell you the truth I has been so frustrating working on this nothing works at all the videos and screen shoots do not match. Sorry for venting, I know this is not your fault. RIM should have had better tools or a set-up to get and keep the developers !!
thats just my 2¢

A beginner with what? Computers in general?
Given you use Windows: Start > Run (leave out this step with Win7 > cmd.
That should open up a command line prompt (black window and white text by default).
Enter "ipconfig" (your computers network configuration) and "ping [your emulators ip]" (to check if the emulator is reachable anyhow) there and post all results.

When the command prompt came up I put in:
ipconfig 192.168.197.1 ping 192.168.197.255
Error: unrecognized or incomplete command line
Then there is about 1.5 page of text that follows I do not know how to copy this. Control+C does not work in the command window.

To copy text from the CLI, right click anywhere and choose "select" (English translation might differ). Whatever you select then is copied to the clipboard.
That's not one command, but rather two:
But there's an error anyway: your emulator's IP can't end with .255 as this is used for multicast purposes only.

I find it easier to click on the "development mode" (cog) icon visible in the top bar in the application launcher to check for your current emulator IP.
Can you ping 192.168.197.128?

So you should probably mark this thread as solved and open up a new one describing your new problem. There are also a whole lot of exising discussions about non-starting apps with various reasons given.
Assuming your app launches in your local AIR debugger, there's perhaps something wrong with
