I am using the 5.0 SDK with the eclipse 1.1 plugin
In C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators 5.0.0 I have several additional simulators installed.
How do I make these appear in the list of devices on the simulator tab in the eclipse run configurations? I can only see the devices included with the original plugin.

I am not sure if this is supported but it works for sure.
When you have additional simulators installed on your computer and you want to see them in the eclipse plugin, you can follow the following steps:
Again, I am not sure if this is supported or not, but it works

Thanks for the reply. Actually I updated to the .latest of the eclipse plugin and now it picks up other installed simulators automatically so all it well atm.

Just a note of warning -- when you install the new Simulator, if you want it to appear automatically in Eclipse, do not change the default installation directory! I did that first (since there was already a Simulators directory in the Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Blackberry Device Simulators). But don't choose that one! It didn't show up in Eclipse. Then I tried many things to get it to show up in Eclipse, to no avail. Finally uninstalled and re-installed in their new default directory -- Program Files\Research In Motion\Blackberry Smartphone Simulators 6.0.
Now it shows up in Eclipse. Of course, it doesn't work, and it broke my ability to even download a project onto a device. Now when I select "Load Project onto Device", the progress dialog hangs, and I can only quit it by killing with TaskMgr!!! Thanks so much RIM.
