Good Day all,
has anyone else had problems trying to install the mac sdk and simulator? I followed the getting started guide but nothing seems to happen when I click on BlackBerryTabletSDK-air-installer.app Do I need to go into the contents of this package? I'm lost
Solved! Go to Solution.

A dummy question :-), you said "when I click on BlackBerryTabletSDK-air-installer.app", did you mean you double click it?
Do you have Java installed in your Mac, what is the version?

Sorry, I should have been more clear. When I launch the installer application, it 'loads' so that the program is doing something, i.e. I see "BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe Air" next to the apple icon, but that is it, no other menus or windows popping up. Same goes for the simulator.
Following what is said to be done in the getting started guide, below is what i get

So you see the "BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe Air" icon, what happen if you click this icon?
You are running a 64bit Java VM. Not sure if that's the problem. Do you have a 32 bit Java VM? If yes, can you add it to the beginning of your search path so the installer finds it first?

I typed exactly what was in the getting started guide. How do I change from 64 to 32 bit?
When I double click on the installer, it "launches' the app, and displays "BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe Air" by the apple icon, but that is it. Clicking on the "BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe Air" menu item shows the following.
Clicking the quit does not work, I have to force quit the application. Nothing else pops up.

I installed it on my MacBook following the instructions. When double-clicking the app, the installer window came up as expected.

I had the same problem with the installer not launching fully.
I'm running Leopard 10.5.8 and running the Apple Updater to get the 10.5.8 update 8 fixed the problem for me.
Hope that helps
If Eclipse stops working with Java Exit =-1 error then try deleting '/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework' before re-nstalling the Java Mac 10.5 Update 8.
This reinstalls a fresh install of Java so clears out any Java issues.
Worked for me, now back to trying to get BB SDK running again.

Deleting the Java framework folder '/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework' and re-installing using the latest manual Apple Java update from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL971 has seemed to fixed all my issues, have been successful in getting Flash Builder to open, compile and debug the Hello, World! test on the Blackberry Playbook simulator using VM Fusion.
Note: I'm no expert with Java and deleting the install was a last resort before I considered a fresh install, someone more qualified may be able to answer this issue more appropriately.
