Re: load a simulators on the Blackberry Theme

The simulators have never shown up for me in Theme Builder 6.  I just compile the theme for Desktop Manager then start the simulator on its own from the Windows start menu and load the COD file.  It works for me every time.

Re: load a simulators on the Blackberry Theme

I had the same issue a while back.
I do not remember the exact fix but it was something like...
Uninstall the simulators and reinstall them - the trick here is to "run as administrator" when reinstalling.
I think I remember something about having to install simulators before installing theme builders.
Which means uninstalling theme builder, install simulators, then reinstall theme builder.

I believe the above method will work - my theme builder is loaded with many simulators - and I do remember experiencing the same issue you are having

Re: load a simulators on the Blackberry Theme

Try to check the simulators version. They might not compatible with the Theme Builder you are using.

Re: load a simulators on the Blackberry Theme

I think it is better to execute the simulator separately. Not from BTS.
