Re: Simulator 2.0 Beta Available

The install simply unpacks a virtual machine. You need a "player" to play the simulator.

 

The free VMWare Player definitely works, but there may be other options:

Re: Simulator 2.0 Beta Available

Just to say the simulator and process is remarkably smooth!

 

Downloaded Command line version of ADT, Simulator and Android SDK.

 

Then it was one command to get existing APK packaged in to a bar:

 

apk2bar myfile.apk c:\path_to_android_sdk

 

And another to transfer it to my Simulator:

 

blackberry-deploy -installApp 192.168.nnn.nnn myfile.bar

 

Tried it with 3 apk so far and without having to touch the source, all are running fine on the Simulator. They're a bit glitchy, but based on past experience some of that is down to the simulator.

 

GREAT STUFF RIM!
