I'm working through the PlayBook Simulator first-timer instructions and I got this far: Compile a BlackBerry WebWorks application
I downloaded the SketchPad Standard archive and issued the compile command, and this is what I got:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks Packager for PlayB ook\bbwp>bbwp c:\Users\Lane\Downloads\sketchPadStandard.zip /s archive_source /o compiled /v [INFO] Parsing command line options [INFO] Parsing bbwp.properties [INFO] Validating WebWorks archive [INFO] Parsing config.xml [INFO] Validating config.xml [INFO] Validating application version [WARNING] Failed to find a <feature> element [INFO] Validating the <name> element [INFO] Validating the <author> element [INFO] Populating application source [ERROR] Failed to read device templates
What do I do now?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm getting the exact same error. Anyone know how I can specify where my device template.
Has anyone actually been able to start developing with this SDK? It seems like so far the only messages have been about installing and compiling the sample.

If you run
then your compile should work.
If you need to specify paths the try absolute paths
C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks Packager for PlayBook\bbwp>bbwp c:\Users\Lane\Downloads\sketchPadStandard.zip /s c:\OUT_DIR /o c:\OUT_DIR\compiled /v

Hi heiko, I'm in the same boat as the first 2 posters, I get the exact same error.
I've tried the commands that you suggested and I get the exact same errors. I used the SketchPad standard application and also a helloWorld app that I copied from the webcast shown in Feb 1, 2011.
I'm starting to think it's the beta 2 version of the SDK that's causing issues.

I think bugloaf got his app to compile, since he marked solution solved (and gave kudos ).
I had tried his commands and could recreate the error, and using my recommeded ones it worked.
Works on beta 2 & 3 - (simulator)
- What exactly are you typing at the command prompt
- What error do you get
- Add /v (verbose) to get more info
- What version of the WebWorks SDK are you using (126.96.36.199 is the latest - I think)
- What OS ?

You know what, with me, I've tried everything aside from restart my computer and that basically fixed the issue, sorry for adding more clutter to this topic.
