Re: Playbook simulator not working

[ Edited ]

Seems to be a common bug. I have completely the same problem as peter_strange. My configuration:

Windows 7 Home 64 bit

Core i5 M430 2.27 GHz

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650


Tried in VMware Workstation 8.0.2 build-591240 and VMware Player4.0.2 build-591240.

I've tried simulator 2.0.1 and 2.0.0. The 1.0.0 works fine.

It will keep cropping up, no doubt.


I solved the problem by "upgrading" my dev machine video card (in a way; my previous card was, in most respects, far better) to a cheap 6450.

Re: Playbook simulator not working

I had same problem. Updating drivers from http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect using Driver update utility fixed the issue!
