Re: PlayBook Error - Web Packager Exception Occured

 

 

Ok ...must say - you got me side tracked from my other development work .. hehe Smiley Happy

 

After breaking it ... I got it to work again .. see steps below:

 

After installing  latest SDK's on WinXP VPC I got the errors discussed in this article.

 

Tried various things to get it to work, including:

- Using the install files that work on my Win& x64 dev PC

- Installing Java JRE & JDK

- Installing AdobeAir SDK

- etc ..

 

Anyway decided to check the dependencies on the jvm.dll  and it seems it requires MSVCR71.dll which it could not find on my VPC installation.

 

Found the file in RIM's SDK's and  in Java SDK's but not in Windows System or anywhere else.

Tried to register dll, but that failed

 

Copied DLL to C:\Windows\System32

 

Tried bbwp .... and it worked !!!

 

To be sure - renamed the file win System32 dir, and it failed again. - So quite sure that this fixed it for me.

 

Hope that helps ..Smiley Wink

 

Regards,

Heiko

You Rawk Heiko!!

Saved me what I imagine could have been hours and hours of time.

 

I don't know what the problem is, but I am running the alienware version of windows 7x64 home premium. It could be that some oem's don't come with this dll, but I think this should be put on the dev site so anyone else can find it.

 

+1 for a Linux build please Smiley Happy

Re: PlayBook Error - Web Packager Exception Occured

Tested - packaged and transfered to playbook vm - I've confirmed that it works flawlesly.

 

It's not just OEM versions of windows i've tried it on an OEM licensed version of windows at home and volume licensed and technet versions at work.

 

Anyway thanks Heiko for saving my life - now I can get stuck into the real work.

Yay Smiley Happy

 

On the Dll Note:

Have you got Visual Studio installed ?

I would assume that if you do, then this  dll (msvcr71.dll) and others would have been installed to your system32 folder. - and the problem would not occur.

 

But can't vouch for that.

Negative I do not have VS installed, I run a debian system, I just installed this to do dev for blackberry, so it was a clean install.

Hi everyone,

 

I've passed your findings on to our Dev team to see if we can incorporate a fix to this in an upcoming release.

 

Hats of to those who dug in to figure this one out.  I tell ya... installations are a lot of fun Smiley Sad every system is different in its own lovely way.  Configuring test environments to replicate these situations is a real challenge.

 

Having people like yourselves dedicated enough to track down and figure out the issue is truely inspiring!

Hi!

 

Nice to see this problem has already been solved for Windows. However, I'm facing the same issue than Ryan with Mac OS X (Leopard). (And it seems I'm not the only one.)

 

 I have installed xcode tools from the Leopard installation CD.
