Tablet Simulator ver.094 does not start

I try to use the Tablet simulator version 094 with VMware.

Installation went fine, but when the simulator screen should be seen, I have a black screen with the "BlackBerry Playbook" message logo at the middle, and nothing happens.

I used the previous version no problem 093. Is anybody else having this same issue?

You can power off the simulator.  Close VMware.  Then start it up again and see how it goes...

Re: Tablet Simulator ver.094 does not start

Provided you've set it up with 1gb ram, accelerated 3D graphics, and 2 cores (optional), then usually a reset will do the trick
