Can launch any apps on simulator

I can't seem to load any apps in BB10 simulator and BB playbook simulator.


- win7 64 bit
- jre 6u43 32bit
- jdk 6u43 32bit


I install the apps on the simulator successfully as the icons show up on the simulator. I can use basic stuff on the simulator with no problem such as the calendar and the browser. But, whenever I load an app, things seems to slow down a lot. The blackberry background pops up and at the bottom a navy blue progress bar shows up.


It starts loading fairly quickly and then slows down to a halt somewhere over 50%. Most of the time the app crashes and exits back to the main screen then or it just hangs on with no progress.


The VM Player is set to 4gb ram with 10gb harddrive, running at 2 core processor.

Re: Can launch any apps on simulator

Which version of the simulator are you running? 


I would recommend you reset the simulator back to it's default settings, that is 2GB of RAM, 8GB HD, and 1 core.  This could be causing the problems with your simulator.
