Not able to setup deployment environment

Hi all,


I have downloaded Blackberry NDK SDK and Blackberry 10 simulator, and installed successfully.


But when i am unable to setup deployment environment. Because vmware player is required.

That software is not free . it needs licence keys to run the BB 10 simulator.


If anyone have any idea, then please share.

Re: Not able to setup deployment environment

As stated on official page: http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

VMWare player is free for personal use

Just download, install and use it.

My BB10 apps: Photo Memo | TriQuick | SkidStone | MeeBirthdays

Re: Not able to setup deployment environment

Thanks for your quick reply.


I have installed vmware player and have successfully mounted the virtual machine of BB 10 simulator.

But when i try to play, nothing happens.


This message comes in the Home window of the player:

'This product is not licensed and is authorised for non-commercial use only. For Commercial use only, purchase a license. Buy Now.'


I am unable to understand. Please somebody guide.
