Simulator Controller Doesn't find Simulator

I recently downloaded the software to start taking a stab at programming for the BB10 platform.

 

I downloaded the SDK from: http://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/download/

and it appears to be working fine.

 

I downloaded the Simulator from: http://developer.blackberry.com/devzone/develop/simulator/simulator_installing.html

and it doesn't appear to be working fine.

 

I open the Controller, Choose Connection -> Connect

 

I get no options for autodiscover.  I hit refresh and still no simulators are found.

 

How do I get my controller to find and connect to my simulator?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Simulator Controller Doesn't find Simulator

I didn't have VMware installed (wasn't made obvious from the previous web pages) but now I'm running into the following issue.

 

Error while powering on: Unable to open file "C:\Program Files\Virtual Machines\BlackBerry10Simulator-BB10_1_X-1483\BlackBerry10Simulator.vmdk":

Insufficient permission to access file.

 

No right click run as admin option for the simulator.

 

The quest continues.

Re: Simulator Controller Doesn't find Simulator

Looks like I needed to go back and run the VMware as an admitn(launching the BB simulator which auto launches VMware doesn't work).

 

All is good now.

 

Hopefully this helps somebody else in the future.
