I just installed the plug in for Visual Studio. Installed simulators are 9800 Torch (v22.214.171.1244), 9800 Torch (v126.96.36.1993), 9930 (v188.8.131.528) They all give me the same message. I have a simple HTML web page, set to debug, when clicking play, I get the message, "Debugging is not supported on the selected Blackberry simulator. Only the loading and launching of WebWorks Applications currently available. Please select a different simulator if you require"
Solved! Go to Solution.

I believe the debugger will only work with simulators that have OS v5.0.x. All the ones you listed are 6.0 or greater.
Try a simulator at v5.0x.
The visual studio plugin is being deprecated in October I think. The new test environment is the Ripple emulator.

Integrated debugging with the Eclipse/Visual Studio IDEs are only supported on BB5 devices.
BlackBerry 7 and PlayBook Devices have built in Web Inspector support
BlackBerry 6 has a few solutions. One of the most popular is Weinre

I eventually found my way to ripple. This has been a far better experience working with Ripple as we can view the application in multiple simulators at the same time. Very nice!

In a few weeks you'll also be able to package/sign and deploy to a simulator from Ripple as well.... More form factors on the way too

I noticed I can't touch scroll in Ripple. I'm trying to navigate around my application by dragging the mouse on the screen, but it doesnt seem to work. It does work in the simulators, at least the one simulator I tried using the eclipse plug in. Did I miss something in Ripple or is that by the current design. If I understand your last post, deploying to a simulator from ripple will clear up that problem.

Ripple still uses an iframe for displaying its content... touch scrolling, kinetic scrolling and other such mobile traits will be coming not in the next release of Ripple but a follow up one.
To scroll now you need to use the arrow keys on your keyboard or the scroll wheel on your mouse.
