I successfully converted (using: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/android/bpaa/) and deployed to the VMWare simulator (Blackberry Playbook 188.8.131.5247) a very simple andoird application. The application simply loads a local webpage inside a webview on Android. All functionality is built in an no other jars or even any permission is needed. It deploys without an issue and shows the icon but when you click it just shows the BB logo with a flash of "initializing, please wait". The logo continues to show that it is processing but it never goes any further. At this point I am at a loss on finding out why or even getting any type of debugging messages to find out what is happening.
What am I missing, it cant be this hard right?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I am also having a problem with webviews...
I am fairly sure they don't work, because it launches a new activity altogether (which is not supported in the new API).

I have the same issue, trying to just bring up a simple HelloAndroid app on a playbook simulator. The only control that it has is a textview. It shows the black "Please wait" flash screen for about 5 minutes and goes back to the blue home screen. It shows the HelloAndroid application on the home screen, but trying to open it does that whole flash screen thing again and comes back to the home screen.
Any ideas anyone?

Just wondering if you guys have turned on the 2 Cores thing in VMWare? I dont know if that could be a reason but maybe your Apps are timing out since the emulator is slow.

Matale, thanks for that tip on turning the dual core option on in vmware. that did it. although very slow and low resolutuion, app finally showed up...

NOOOO! My app is doing the same thing but apparently VMware Player does not allow multiple cores on Windows 7. BOOOOOOO!
Anybody know a waya round this? I have no Blackberry device of my own so I have no way of testing this if I cannot get VMware to actually run my app!
