Re: sketchPad_Eclipse.zip is not working in Playbook Simulator



Use the "sketchPadStandard.zip" sample.  This version is compatible with the WebWorks SDK for PlayBook.


The reason why you are receiving that error message is because of the underscore in the file name which is disallowed in WebWorks project archives.


Also, the "sketchPad_Eclipse.zip" sample contains Eclipse project files that are not necessary to be used with the SDK for PlayBook (since this SDK is not yet integrated with an Eclipse plug-in).
