I downloaded: Blackberry VS2008 Plugin V1.2 and Blackberry Simulator (9000) 188.8.131.52 and installed in the same order.
I am running: VS2008SP1 on a Vista x64(AMD)SP1 Laptop.
I am running a VS 2008 Website Project.
Visual Studio Setup.....
Set my browser to be the BB Browser as default in VS. I also checked under Tool/Options/Blackberry/ and saw that the 9000 similator is the default simulator and is installed via the plugin. The documentation "Features and Technical Overview" for V1.2 does not say anything about how to install. The only software requirements it lists is the plugin and a simulator that is 184.108.40.206 for greater
When I debug I get the error: Unable to start the program '\RIM.NetTools.ScriptHost.exe'. The specified working directory does not exist or is not a full path.
Am I missing a step? software? a reference? what is the problem?

The issue most likely is that you are using a 64bit version of the Vista operating system. The stated system requirements for the plug-in require a 32 bit operating system
I'm sure a response question will be "but why does it only support a 32bit operating system"
We are working on addressing this in future versions. Supporting all the flavors of different operating systems take lots of testing cycles so we have the unfortunate task to prioritize the supported operating systems and ramp up the testing effort for different operating systems as we move forward. This is in an effort to make the tooling available as soon as possible to the majority of users.

There seems to be a lot of documentation on the 1.1 plugin, in particular the "Getting Started Guide", has quite a lot of detail. The operating system requirements for the 1.1 plugin looks like 32bit since it list Windows 2k and XP, but the 1.2 documentation "Features and Technical Overview does list Vista, but does not specify 32 or 64.
I also use and XP box so I can try the plugin on that one to see what happens. I will let you know. It seems there is a big difference between 1.1 and 1.2 plugins, it would be very helpful if you had a getting started guide for 1.2. An installation guide would probably save a few posts on the forum.
One point of confusion, does the Visual Studio 1.1 or 1.2 plug-in reqire the MDS Service Simulator to work?

The 32 bit requirement is listed on the download page... I'll talk to our Software Documentation department to make sure that the requirement gets into those guides.
Both v1.1 and v1.2 include a packaged MDS Service Simulator with them, so you don't need to download it separately

I installed the plugin on the XP box and it seemed fine up until I went to debug. When I try to debug, I get the message: Message Queuing has not been installed on this machine.

I found a fix for this, under Win7 x64.
In your project, right click your main .aspx file, go to "browse with", and choose "Add".
Under program name, browse to the Research In Motion folder and choose the "RIM.Net.Tools.ScriptHost.exe" file it says it can't find.
Give it whatever friendly name you want.
Haven't tested it under a whole lot of conditions, however it seems to pull up the emulator just fine and loads my application on it just fine.

Thanks for the reply, I think this will help me solve the problem. I searched the computer and there is no executible called:
RIM.Net.Tools.ScriptHost.exe could it be under another name or is there a way to manually install it. Was this installed with the simulator plugin?
I rebuilt my XP box and installed XP Pro and got the plugin to work, but only with the 9000 sim. The stand alone sims seem to work better on the XP box. I don't like having to switch to my XP box to test, I would like to run everything on my Vista laptop. Any help is greatly appreciated.
