That might explain some of the issues you are having, RIM currently doesn't officially support Windows 7 (I think) and 64bit support is in the works but not out yet.

Re: Knowledge/Bug Database?

Well,

 

Windows 7 is mostly Vista in terms of drivers...the usb driver seems to function ok...

 

As for the 64 bit, I don't see any crashes/etc. - just some "wierdness"...

 

Considering Windows 7 has been out since October and beta since summer...and 64 bit AMD on Vista has been out for some time now - I would hope RIM would make this a priority...

 

Like I said earlier...a simple "verbose mode" in Javaloader would tell me alot in terms of what's it doing...

Re: Knowledge/Bug Database?

True, as for 64 bit, it is being worked on (from what I remember hearing). They are also working on making the simulators and build tools OS-independent.

Re: Knowledge/Bug Database?

At the end of the day, if you are not working on a supported configuration then you aren't going to get a bunch of interest from RIM.

RD-

 

 

It would be one thing if I was on Windows 98 (phased out)...or wanting to run on DOS...or some weird version of

Linux...or USB 1 interface...

 

But we are talking about an OS that is now being sold on almost 100 percent of the desktop/laptop's around

the world...and 64 bit processors are pretty much de-factor standard now...

 

I would hope that RIM would be interested in supporting this in the very near future...

Re: Knowledge/Bug Database?

I don't disagree with you. I said the same thing when I put the RIM tools on Vista two years ago. After about 3 months of horrible agony, I bought a new dev system and paid $75 to have it "downgraded" to XP.

 

Life is too short to waste cycles on tool friction (IMHO).
