Just migrated my application from JDE to the Eclipse plugin environment. Application compiles fine and runs fine. However, when I run it under the simulator I can never get the simulator to close. I have to actually kill off Eclipse to stop the simulator.
Windows 7-64, Eclipse Gallileo, Plug In 1.1.
Solved! Go to Solution.

It is because you are running it on a 64-bit Windows 7. This issue was resolved in an update. I'm not sure if it fixes every simulator but it seems to have fixed the OS 5 simulator.
Go to Help > Install New Software.
If you have the update site set up (http://www.blackberry.com/go/eclipseUpdate/3.5/jav
Update "BlackBerry Java Plugin". As of this writing, the latest is marked 4-16-2010.

If updating the software doesn't solve your issue you can try using Windows Task Manager.
How I used it before the software update solved that issue was, if your not familiar with the Windows Task Manager.
1. On your keyboard press control+alt+delete your screen might go blank for a second or 5
2. Then there are a few options select start Task Manager.
3. from there in the Windows Task Manager window select the Applications tab.
4. then select the simulator from the list and press the End Task Button. it can take a second or two but that's better than killing eclipse entirely.
You can pin the Task manager to the taskbar.
What os version and simulator is the issue with? If you woudnt mind.
