Win 8.1 no device connection?

Anyone have the latest Momentics and Windows 8.1 working?

 

Auto-discover and manual IP setting doesn't work, reporting 'no device connected'.

 

Tested with Dev Alpha C and Z10 LE.

 

Any suggestions on how to get it working again greatly appreciated.

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

I'll be interested to see how this turns out since I will probably be getting a new primary development laptop in the next month that will be running Win8.1. My current development laptop and desktop both run Win7 x64 Ultimate. Please keep us updated if you get this running.

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

Well, I was hoping someone already had it working but with no response I'll try to re-install the drivers, it was fine under Win 8.

I don't think I've yet to have a problem free Momentics update, the QML problem has been fixed in the latest update (thanks for that BlackBerry) but now this. :-)

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

Same here. I think the main problem with Momentics is that it just a "skin" on eclipse, which is a hopeless mishmash that has grown up over many years with everything including the kitchen sink bolted on. Say what you will about msft, the VS experience is light-years better.

[ Edited ]

I do all BB10 development in Qt Creator and it's awesome, but harder to setup because it's not officially supported. :smileysad:

Everything is working (or can be made to work) except visual QML editor. It's much more responsive than Eclipse and supports Qt constructs better.

Sorry for offtopic. :smileyhappy: Just wanted to recommend trying it if you haven't already.

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

Are you able to connect to the device using BlackBerry Link?

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

Hi Mark,

I've answered you via email, for those following this thread, Link doesn't work which is why I suspect some driver incompatibility.
However the device is recognised as a BlackBerry Drive as if it cannot handshake with Link/Momentics that the software is already installed.

Currently I'm trying a delete and re-install of Link to see if this clears any driver problems.

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

Thanks for the update.  For the BlackBerry Drive part, are you able to browse and access your files or does it act as if no drivers are installed (drive just has a link to download BlackBerry Link)?

Re: Win 8.1 no device connection?

I could access the files and having deleted Link and then re-installed it, Momentics (and Link) are now working again.

 

There was obviously some disconnect there after the 8.1 update but for me at least it's fixed and for once I didn't have to re-install Momentics. :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks Mark.

Good to hear... I guess I can go ahead with that upgrade now.

 

:Yes:
