VPN Extensions Library missing on Simulator

I'm developing a VPN Extension App using Cascades ui and latest available Momentics IDE.

I've already set up environment, simulator and successfully built and  and deployed to simulator simple Cascades sample with tabs. All works fine, great. 

After learning VPN Extensions Library documentation I faced trouble: if I add libvpn_ext built-in library throgh Add Library wizard, project fails to build with simulator configuration. With device configuration project builds correct. As I understand, the problem is missing x86 version of  libvpn_ext library. 


I don't have real device, only simulator, so I can't futher develop my app. Any ways to get x86 version of library?


Here is console output of failed build:

Re: VPN Extensions Library missing on Simulator

libvpn_ext is not currently supported in the BlackBerry 10 Simulator.  I've requested it be added in a future release.


For now, you'll need a real device to test with.
