Blackberry JDE

Hi,

 

I just installed the Blackberry JDE 6 and the JDK(newest).

 

After install it ran fine, then i closed the JDE and tried to reopen it, it gives me the error message 

 

Cannot find RIMIDEWin32Util.dll. This is a required component of the IDE.

 

I hav'nt changed anything this is directly after the installation!

 

Thanks

In my installation, the RIMIDEWin32Util.dll file is here:

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 6.0.0\bin

 

If you are running on Win 7, there might be a permissions problem.  Search the forum for Win 7 installation Threads.  Most of them relate to Eclipse, but you might get some hints on the things that can go wrong.

Re: Blackberry JDE

I am old school (in all senses) and I use JDE.

 

Most people here use Eclipse.  I think you will find the appropriate download links and even a tutorial if you search round here.

Re: Blackberry JDE

I run Win XP.  I downgraded this PC because I had a number of issues with some legacy software I work with (as noted, I am old school).  But I do have a working Win 7 environment too. 

 

JDE is easier to install, and looks simpler, but does not have some of the bells and whistles that Eclipse has to help the programmer - such as automatically creating the right method stubs for code that implements Interfaces.

 

If I was starting now, I would start with Eclipse.

Re: Blackberry JDE

Hi please tell me (if you can) which one in http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ I must download if I want to start with basic development.

 

Thanks
