Cannot start Ripple Emulator

My computer is Windows 7 (64bit). I tried to use Ripple Emulator for smartphone development.

 

I installed Ripple Emulator on C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\Ripple 0.9.0.16

and BlackBerry WebWorks SDK on C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.3.1.5

These are the default locations the installation program provided.

 

When I double click on the icon both in folder and in start menu, the program does not even show up, the Ripple Emulator does not start. I have even restarted my computer but nothing is running.

Re: Cannot start Ripple Emulator

Hi there,

If you are running the latest version of Ripple (which you should), you don't need to click any icons. Ripple is a Chrome extensions, so it works within the browser.

Just navigate to your app (you need a webserver for this), and then click the Ripple button to activate it.

Re: Cannot start Ripple Emulator

I understand that the Ripple emulator is available as a Google  Chrome extension for use with applications created using the BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK, and is also available as a standalone tool for applications creating using the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK.

 

I am having problem on Ripple Emulator instead of Ripple Emulator Extension.

 

Any idea?

Re: Cannot start Ripple Emulator

Ripple has been discontinued as a standalone product, if you download the latest version (which you should) it's only a chrome extension.

Re: Cannot start Ripple Emulator

Not sure if this is same problem, but deleting the c:\users\<user>\appdata\roaming\Research In Motion\ directory after uninstalling ripple, then reinstalling fixed all issues with ripple for me. Hope this helps.

Re: Cannot start Ripple Emulator

This worked for me:

Find the C:\Program Files\.....\Ripple0.9.5.0\services\bin    directory.

 

Click on ripple-services .bat file.

 

You might get an unblock port request.... hit ok..

 

Try http://localhost:9910/....yourFolder....
