Re: simulator 9900 crashing in windows 8 64 bit

Welcome to the forums. 


Requirements to run a Simulator are documented here:




I note Windows 8 is not listed, so I am not sure if that is supported.  You might like to try bringing it up in some compatibility mode. 


The other thing that I have seen but not experienced myself, is issues with permissions.  I install all the BB software in a specific directory, not the standard Program Files.  Since I believe the Simulators update files in that directory, this can cause problems.  So you could try them in a BB specific directory, or running them as Administrator. 


If this does not help, please give us specific information about how your Simulators 'crash'.
