BBM Server on the Emulator

The most recent patch notes for the emulator mention BBM should be testable on the emulator now:


BBM and BBMServerThe BBM Server simulator comes bundled with the BlackBerry 10 Device Simulator for Windows and Mac. Now you can test your BBM connected app without the need for a BlackBerry 10 device. The BBM Server simulator enables communication between separate instances of BBM that run on the simulator.


That being said, I still get a "No BlackBerry Data" error when I open the BBM application.


Anyone have any luck with BBM on the emulator? Is it just me having issues?

Re: BBM Server on the Emulator

Did you configure and run the BBM Server Simulator?  Instructions for that are in the bbm\readme.txt file found in your BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator installation directory.
