But I never get to see the following screen:



Tried installing the simulator with VMWare more than two times, and shutdown and restarted. But I can never get to the Playbook Simulaytor screen.


Any ideas?

Re: Playbook Simulator does not load in VM Console

This topic is well-covered in another thread (with no guaranteed solution, I'm afraid).


See also this one and, in case you make it this far, this one.


The short answer is, check your settings, try reinstalling to see if you get different behaviour, and try leaving it running for a few hours or overnight and see if it makes it past.  Also please report in that first thread anything new you may learn.
