I have installed the latest simulator and VMware but whenever I open the simulator it gets stuck at START SERVICE: dumper. I waited for more than 30 mins but still it was stuck there. 




Also, My cpu is amd athlon x2 3600+ and I have enabled the SVM option from boot screen but still simulator fails to start


Please help

Re: Simulator gets stuck

Not sure if it is the right way but turn off 3D graphics and do a "safe" launch ... that got my simulator to actually come to the point I got to the main screen although very slow. For the last few weeks I always got what you did on a Mac on a Win box ... I had to finish an App and did it just using the device.


  I think it wants a specific video driver, but they don't tell u that .... so easy to pop a message to let the user know and not leave u out in the cold.


  I still have an issue which I'm fighting now, the controller screen pops but it comes out blank (on a Win box) on the Mac the controller pops but it cannot connect no matter what I've tried.
