Getting bb10 simulator running

I am trying to get simulator to run, I  am at the point where I  need the ip address, but I don't see it where the instructions say it should be(bottom left).  Here is a picture of what I am seeing. How do I find ip address?

Re: Getting bb10 simulator running

It looks like the simulator started booting at the screen service.  This usually signifies that VMware is not able to detect a 3D capable card on your host OS.  

 

Can you please ensure ensure the following:

- Make sure that you have the "3D acceleration option" checked in your display settings

- Ensure that your GPU drivers are up to date with the latest drivers provided to you by your vendor.  

- Make sure you're using the default graphics settings with VMWare, i.e. no changes to the resolution or 2nd monitor support.

 

You can also boot into safe mode, which relies on a software solution that will get around this issue.

 

Hope this helps!
