Unable to install BlackBerry 10 Simulator on Windows 8 Pro (Windows DLL failed to load)

[ Edited ]

I'm not able to install : BlackBerry10Simulator-Installer-BB10_0_09-386-Win-201209241939.exe


on Windows 8 Pro x64 with java

java version "1.7.0_09"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_09-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.5-b02, mixed mode)



I always got this error message when installing it. 


PS.  I redownloaded it and the same message.

Re: Unable to install BlackBerry 10 Simulator on Windows 8 Pro (Windows DLL failed to load)

I was able to solve this by setting the installer EXE to Windows 7 compatibility mode and doing a Run as Administrator.  Remarkably the Simulator seems to be working fine despite reports that it does not run on Windows 8.
