BB Tour 9630 Simulator disappears

I have Eclipse Helios, Win7, with latest BB WebWorks.  I installed the BB Tour 9630 simulator.  When I start Eclipse, I briefly see the 9630 sim in the Sim selector, but as soon as I try to open Window/Preferences to make it the default, it disappears from the list!  I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the sim, to no avail.  Anybody have any ideas?  Thanks.  I really need that Simulator :smileyindifferent:

 

Right after Eclipse startup...

 

...and opening Windows/Prefs...

Hi Floogle

Here is a workaround for win7 users
1. Under "C:\Users\<userName>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Device Simulators" folder you can find a .rc file (mine is SimPackage-5.0.0.975_9630-Verizon.rc).
2. Copy this .rc file to "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Device Simulators" folder (if such folder path doesn't exit, you should manually create it)
3. start Eclipse
