BB10 Dev Alpha Simulator does not load




I am beginner in developing mobile apps for BB10. this is my first app on BB10 and I am stuck on simulating the app. I am using HTML5 for developing apps and I have successfully developed and tested the app on ripple emulator on chrome.


I want to do the testing on a simulator before I can submit my app to MM world but I am unable to get my simulator to function.


The VMware player opens the file "BlackBerry10Simulator-BB10_0_09-386\BlackBerry10Simulator.vmx" located under users/myusername/VMImages directory and load a screen with BB logo and after a while a blue screen is displayed with a cursor. The main BB phone screen and the options are not shown.


the IP address is detected and other data telnet....are shown.


I have tried a bunch of things but I am lost.


Other Info:

OS : Windows 8 Pro

VMware® Player 5.0.1 build-894247 Trial


any suggestions and help will be appreciated.
