Simulator won't close in Windows 7 64-bit

Hi,

 

When I launch a simulator in Windows 7 64-bit I am unable to close it without going to the task manager and killing the process. When I close the simulator with the X button it just freezes and is unresponsive. I've tried the instructions on these forums for setting up the Java Eclipse plug-in on Windows 7 64-bit, but it has not remedied the problem.

 

My solution right now is to a batch file to kill the process with one click.

 

taskkill /f /im "fledge.exe"

 

I put it in the QuickLaunch which I had to do some fiddling to get back in Windows 7. Here's some instructions for getting the QuickLaunch back: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/888-quick-launch-enable-disable.html?ltr=Q.

 

Is there a way to solve this simulator problem without killing the process?

This is a known issue and the only other way is to press "Disconnect" when in the Debug perspective but it effectively does the same as terminating the process (it might be a little safer; not sure).

Yeah, the batch file is your best bet. I have several on my desktop for this reason. "taskkill /F /IM BbDevMgr.exe" is probably my favorite.

Re: Simulator won't close in Windows 7 64-bit

Another possible solution:

Interestingly enough I think I know why its not closing.

 

First the FledgeHook.exe shows up in the Microsoft Administrator Events log as an Application Error.

It must be able to be launched.

 

Steps:

First close Eclipse

Secondly locate the executable:

C:\Eclipse\plugins\net.rim.ejde\vmTools

Login as Admin right click the FledgeHook.exe select properties,

Click on the Compatibility tab

Click button Change settings for all users

Click check box to run application as Administrator.

Launch your Eclipse

Run your application through the simulator

Click on the 'X' on the upper right.

FledgeHook.exe is a program that detects if your simulator has been closed, then it is able to really shut it down. When FledgeHook.exe keep having errors and not able to be run the simulator runs by itself. It needs FledgeHook.exe.

 

It seems to work for me. Remember to check your Microsoft Events log to see any other application errors.

 

Here is where I found out about FledgeHook.exe,

I hope this help folks.
