Re: Viewing PDF through simulator

DeviceManger Snap shot

Thank you very much for your response.

 

I can see "Bypass" with Servers and Device Statistics sections if I connect BlackBerry handheld to my PC using USB cable.

From Blackberry handheld all the downloading works good.

 

From simulator I am not able to download pdf and doc type attachments.But i can download attachments of type txt.

I did testing on simulator 8300(version 4.5.*) and 8700g.

Device Manger and Desktop manger version - 4.5.*

 

Thanks

Re: Viewing PDF through simulator

Are you downloading the text files from within the BlackBerry Browser or as email attachments?  If it was the latter, are you able to open anything in the BlackBerry Browser?  Am I correct to assume that you now see the statistics for the BlackBerry Simulator?

Re: Viewing PDF through simulator

Thanks for spending time on my problem.

 

I am downloading from Blackberry browser from simulator.

All other things works good except downloading pdf and doc attachments from Blackberry browser.

I don't see statictics for the Blackberry simulator, i can see just time connected.

 

I think this is very common problem which many people are facing.

 

Thanks

Re: Viewing PDF through simulator

What version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server are you testing with?  What type of mail server is it connected to?  You can also upgrade to the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Managere here:  http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/

Re: Viewing PDF through simulator

I was using 4.5 version of BES.

As per your advice, I tried with 4.7, din't find any luck.

 

We are not using any mail server. We have a mobile based web application specifically for Blackberry model 8300,8700,8800.

We use blackberry browser from the handset to navigate our web application.

As I said earlier, all the downloading(viewing of pdf file) works good from the handset.We are not trying to save the file.We just want to view the file.

 

But from the simulator, downloading(viewing) of pdf and doc file won't work, We get a error messge telling "Unsupported media type".

 

I am not sure whether mail server is must when we are testing from simulator.

 

Thanks

Re: Viewing PDF through Blackberry 9800 simulator

Hello

 

Have you connected the simulator to a real BES?

 

How big is the pdf file?

 

Cheers
