error: "failed to create renderer"?

What does "failed to create renderer" mean in the simulator? Is it just a simulator error or is a problem with the code? If I keep closing and re-opening the app, it eventually works.

Re: error: "failed to create renderer"?

Hi there, can you please elaborate just a little? Is this a BBOS simulator or BB10? What is your application doing during startup; is it using BrowserFields? Any other information about your application?

I've seen this occur on BBOS as the simulator could only handle one BrowserField at a time and if the native browser was open then some issues occurred. I haven't seen that issue in a while though.
