BrowserFieldDemo gives error: Throws exception on startup

I recently tried to get the BrowserFieldDemo included in the JDE to work. I just created a new project with the code from the demo but It crashes on startup when running in the simulator. . I did not make any changes to the code either.


The message i get on the screen is:


RenderingSession#getBrowserContent() threw net.rim.device.api.browser.field.RenderingException: IOException in connection



Has anyone run across this before?

Re: BrowserFieldDemo gives error: Throws exception on startup

What BlackBerry Smartphone model and BlackBerry device software version are you testing on?  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.  Have you also started the MDS-CS Simulator?  It is required to use the BlackBerry Browser (or BrowserField).
