Build for PlayBook with the BB10 Native SDK?

Hi

 

A few months back I was developing for the PlayBook.  I've recently returned to this and have downloaded the BB10 Native SDK.  Obviously, I appreciate that the PlayBook doesn't support BB10 at the moment.

 

Is it possible to download just the target OS for the PlayBook so I can develop for it using under same QNX Momentics install?  Or do I need to install both the BB10 SDK and the PlayBook SDK, and have both installs running alongside each other?

Is there anything special I need to do for that?  So far, the BlackBerry Deployment Setup Wizard in QNX Momentics (which I downloaded for BB10) won't even find the PlayBook.  I've checked:

 

- That the PlayBook knows its connected to a computer (via USB)

- Windows knows that the PlayBook's connected

- The PlayBook's running OS 2.1.0.1526

- The PlayBook's in development mode

- The IP address is correct

OK, I've just installed the BB10 SDK on a Win7 box and this can find the PlayBook device without problems, so I presume there's a good chance that this is a Win8 issue.

 

Also the Win7 install of QNX Momentics (unlike the Win8 install) also lists the NDK for Tablet OS 2.0.1 in its dropdown list in addition to BB10.  I don't know if this is because I also have the PlayBook NDK installed alongside on this machine.
