I'm having trouble getting the simulator up and running. This is my VMWare configuration:
-I've set Virtualization engine to "Binary translation" since the "Automatic" option does not work, and my CPU does not support the "Intel VT-x" options.
-# cores: 1 or 2.
-Display options: 3D Acceleration checked, use host settings checked.

No, I'm on a WXP machine.
The virtualization is clearly my problem. I don't mind about using safe mode, perhaps this means that graphics workload is handled to the virtual CPU instead of the computer gx card, but I'm guessing here. My CPU lacks VT support, so it's never going to be as fast as one having VT. According to this official blog post, it's going to be a thousand percent slower:
As my PC is kind of old, it can't run the simulator at a decent emulation speed.
In your case, if you can't install an app in safe mode, maybe it is because of the networking config of the virtual machine instance. I think it has to be set to direct connection instead of NAT, but I might be wrong, as I never get anywhere close to deploy an app.
