No options available after installing the plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.2

Hi!
I'm a new blackberry's developer and I'm trying to do my first sample.
I have experience with Microsoft.Net (Asp.Net & Vb.Net) but I never had made anything to a smartfone.

 

So, I followed this steps:
- I read the documentation;
- I downloaded the "Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.2";
- I downloaded the "Simulator 5.0";
- I installed the "Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.2";
- I installed the "Simulator 5.0".

 

Everything worked fine (I don't have received any error message).

 

After that, I tryed to initialize a "Hello World" application in Visual Studio 2008, but I can't find any blackberry's resources. There is no options in any menu of Visual Studio, there is no new project type, there is no option on "Add-in manager" menu.

 

I found a video where say to found the "BlackBerry Browser" on "Browser with..." menu of my project (when I click with the right button's mouse), but this option is not there. I don't have any references to any BlackBerry's library or resources on my VS2008.

 

Can anyone help me?

 

I'm grateful for your attention.

 

Best regards,

 

João Paulo.

Re: No options available after installing the plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.2

If you are looking to build a BlackBerry Widget using Visual Studio, you must download the Version 2.0 Beta of the Visual Studio plug-in.

 

The version 1.2 only provides web debugging for ASP.NET projects.

 

The 2.0 Beta can be found here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbetasoftware/eclipseplugin.jsp

 

Both the Eclipse and Visual Studio Beta 2.0 plug-ins can be downloaded from that page, so make sure you grab the right one :smileyhappy:

Re: No options available after installing the plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.2

Hi tneil!

Thanks by the helping.

I downloaded the version 2.0 Beta, I uninstalled all wrong versions that I have instaled, and installed this version (2.0 Beta).

 

Now I can see a new project type available in the Visual Studio 2008, but I still have a problem.

 

When I go to "Browse with..." in my project menu, I can't see the option "Blackberry browser". So, I can't see any website on the BlackBerry's simulator. Apparently, the other features are working ok.

 

Did you have any idea what's happening or what's this issue?

 

Thanks again!

João Paulo.
