Can't open apps on BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator

Hi,

 

I'm trying to use the BB 10 Dev Alpha Simulator (10.0.10.261), using VMPlayer 5.0.1 on Windows 7 64-bit.  The simulator seems to startup OK, although I have to choose the safe mode (option 2) when the VM is booting because normal mode always freezes when starting.  The splash screen appears followed by the home screen with the default app icons.  The home screen is responsive to clicks, but whenever I try to click an app to start it (contacts/calendar/settings etc) the home screen icons slide off screen to the right and then reappear about 6 seconds later and the app doesn't start.  The same thing happens if I click 'Settings' from the options when swiping down from the top of the screen.  Is there something I'm doing wrong?

 

Any help appreciated,

Jonathan

I've uninstalled the simulator, re-installed and seems to be working now!
