Re: PlayBook simulator


  the simulator runs fine usually. You should try to reinstall the image and double check each step.

What is the file name of the image iso file you've been using ?

Re: PlayBook simulator

If you got the BB logo animation, try re-starting/re-cycling the power from the menu bar in vmware (not in front of vmware just now).  I recall that fixed a similar problem.


I also had some off vmware issues when creating new image from the ISO file.

Re: PlayBook simulator

This happens to me sometimes. But after a reboot, it usually works.


If this is constant, check the RAM that you assigned for that Virtual Machine. It demands 1GB, and if you try to use less, this will happens for sure (at least happened to me).
