what's the trick to getting the ide to talk to or launch a new simulator? I ran the ide_update.bat in the
simulator dir but that didn't help.
Solved! Go to Solution.

JDE, lol you think I would go get another IDE? I would mention I'm still using the 500Meg system
people have made fun of, sure it is slow but I would think I could at least get a connection.
In the past when adding a new JDE, I think I've had to play with params but can't figure this one out.

From memory OS 5.0 is the same as any other JDE. However the Simulators take quite a long time to load on my 4 GB dual core. I would think you could get yourself a cup of coffee while loading one on your system.
Have you tried running them 'standalone', by executing the *.bat file in the directory?

Well, literally no as I converted that to a bash script and run it under cygqin but, yes, I can get the standlone
to run fine. In the past, either I had to have the IDE launchit to find it or had to NOT do that, once I get a ritual
it always seemed to work. However, I tried all the stuff that used to work- playing with preferences grepping
for options, even opened dos window and ran the ide-update bat file. No luck.
And, yes it takes forever to come up but I have 2 machines now. This debian would be great except for
lack of support- not sure RIM will work consistently ( those dll pieces LOL) and now my wireless caed
is apparently having driver problems ( I had to wrap the windoze drivers ....). So, anyway, I'll let
the laptop takes its time and do real work on linux...
I guess its possible I have some other thing on one of the ports but I would have expected someone

ok, I edited a bunch of things to include ports but I finally started the phone manually and it
does seem to have attached now. I may have missed this however since the phonedidn't overtly
indicate it was trying to atach. There is a small "attached" rect in middle of screen but I could
have missted this before. So, no luck getting it launch fromIDE but I can live with that.
Nos for some coffee. Luckily I stll have this debian machine which allows me to send my wisdom around the globe
