Windows 8 and Native SDK

Ok so i just rebuilt my computer in windows 8 64bits, but when I try to install the Native SDK (I downloaded the installation file (.exe) from blackberry https://developer.blackberry.com/native/download/, I get the error:

 

-

Installer User Mode interface not supported

The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the i-Command line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI mode identifiers are GUID, Console and Silent

-

Anybody solved thi issue? How can I acces the "i-command line" ?

 

Thank you to help a guy starting to develop :smileyhappy:

Re: Windows 8 and Native SDK

I've tried it in Windows7 compatibility before posting but it didn't work! Sorry, I forgot to mention!

 

 

Maybe you could help me out, I found this post later on: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-WebWorks-Development/Error-installing-BB10-WebWorks-S...

 

But I think the .bat file I created isn't good because Windows refuses to run it, any ideas why? Do you guys know a more precise way to achieve what The_Anomaly said..

 

Thanks!

4 And you need to install  Java - JRE

1.  Create a native.bat file in the same folder.  Do this by right clicking in the folder area and choosing New -> Text Document.  Name the text file native.bat. Enter.  This file must be in the same folder as the download and my instructions assume you're installing BB10-WebWorks-SDK_1.0.2.exe  If not you need to match the file name.  ie: for native it may be installer-bbndk-bb10_0_09-win32-386-201209241008-201209241243.exe - I work in webworks

2.  Then insert this: BB10-WebWorks-SDK_1.0.2.exe -i GUI -> do this by right clicking on the file and choosing Edit.  It will open in Notepad.  You could also open Notepad and drag the file into it.  Paste: BB10-WebWorks-SDK_1.0.2.exe -i GUI

3.  Save. Exit

4.  Run the bat file - clicking on it.

 

Making sure in step 1 the file IS A BAT extension.  If you're not sure how to determine extensions then google "show win 7 file extensions" which takes you to this:

Re: Windows 8 and Native SDK

Oh god I feel dumb.. the hole time it only was a space I forgot since the beginning (when I tried it first!)

 

instead of typing (I renamed it)  "NativeSdkInstallation.exe -i GUI", I was typing "NativeSdkInstallation.exe-i GUI", so the computer was like ".exe-i... what the hell is that!?" ;P

 

Thank you very much!

Re: Windows 8 and Native SDK

I had the same problem, so I used the compatibility mode and I could install.

 

By the way, the Windows 8 OS selected a  "Windows XP" version to compatibility :smileytongue:
