Blackberry 10 simulator - all apps crash immediately?

[ Edited ]

I'm on BB10_0_09-2318 - this is the first simulator I've used for bb10.


- When I try to run my app in the simulator, the app opens and closes again  a few frames later.

- I tried downloading some random apps from blackberry world in the simulator - 'PewPew' and 'Run In Crowd' - same result on both of these!


Anybody else had this problem? Any suggestions on how I might identify the cause?


Thanks for all help.

Please submit a bug report from the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha simulator and we can look into it.

Any native application in App World will not work on the simulator since only Arm Binaries are published, hence why some apps will just exit when installed.  Android or Flash applications are platform agnostic and should work.


Are you building/running your app as an Arm binary?  Please make sure that your application is built for x86, i.e. Simulator Debug in the IDE.
