[Q] "Could not get ADB device on"

When I try to upload my app to the simulator with: Run As --> BlackBerry Android Launch I get a dialog box that pops up and says:


"Could not get ADB device on"


After I close the dialog box, I can see my app icon in the simulator but when I launch it I just get a blank screen.


Does anyone know what's going on here? And if there are any solutions?

I'm bumping this thread. I'm experiencing the same issues with both the Playbook simulator and the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator.


This is what my Console output looks like:

[2013-01-17 14:58:57 - XXXXX-BB] Could not get ADB device on 


The app icon appears on the home screen of the simulator but when I click on it, I get an error about the app not responding.


When I run "adb devices" from terminal I get the following:
