Hello World app: RAPC exception occurred

Hi all!


I'm trying to build simple "Hello World" app for PlayBook.

I'm getting "RAPC exception occurred" for this simple app.


The config.xml is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" 
xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets" version="1.0.3" rim:header="RIM-Widget:rim/widget">
  <content src="index.htm"/>

Index.htm is:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"/>
<div>Hello World</div>


To build I use command: 


c:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks Packager>bbwp d:\P

layBook\Examples\Test\Test.zip /o d:\PlayBook\Examples\Test /d /v



In output I gets no additional details just "RAPC exception occurred" even having "/v" switch in parameters.


Can anyone help me?


With best regards,

Andrew Veresov

Replying to myself just in case that other nubbies could have a same error.

I used regular WebWorks packager instead of WebWorks Packager for PlayBook.


So, make sure that you are using bbwp from right location.
