I'm new to Blacberry development and really hope someone can help. I have downloaded the JDK, Visual Studio Plug-in, relevant simulator and so on but I'm not able to access any of the blackberry functions in my VS project.
I'm using VS2008 on Windows 7 and have made sure that I have selected the blackberry.app and blackberry.invoke etc features in my config file.
I have also tried to download a few sample applications but nothing works. I've tried rebooting my PC, uninstalling and reinstalling everything but can't get any further.
On a seperate note: I've downloaded the simulator for a blackberry curve 8900 but it doesn't show up in the list of simulators in visual studio - have I done something wrong?
Many thanks in advance!

When you try to create a new project, do you see Blackberry as an option?
You should see Visual Basic, then Visual C# then Blackberry. If not I would check your install of the plug in.
Are you on 32 bit or 64 bit win 7?

hi there, thanks for your reply.
yes, when I create a new project I can see blackberry as an option but I'm having no luck...
I'm using 64 bit Windows 7.

That's what I thought, however if I try to run one of the code examples I can't seem to use any of the functions in the API.
var args = new blackberry.invoke.MapsArguments(43.26, -80.30);
The above code won't work, the simulator will throw an error and the map won't be displayed?
