unable to configure BBMWebWorksDemo , blackberry webworks

I am new to Blackberry Webworks and trying to configure the BBMWebWorksDemo example by following http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-WebWorks-Development/Getting-Started-BlackBerry-WebWo... article.

For the step :"A copy of the blackberry.bbm.platform folder installed in the <bbwp>/ext folder of your BlackBerry WebWorks SDK installation" - I am unable to find the blackberry.bbm.platform folder and <bbwp>/ext folder.

As mentioned in the http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/38548/BlackBerry_WebWorks_SDK_for_Smartphones-... document I am trying to use command "<path>\bbwp.exe" "<path>\BBMWebWorksDemo.zip" , but i get an error "Failed to find WebWorks archive: C:\BBM" on cmd prompt.


Please can anybody guide me correctly to get the sample BBM example working for blackberry webworks.

Re: unable to configure BBMWebWorksDemo , blackberry webworks

That guide is a bit out of date now. In the latest version of the WebWorks SDK, the bbm platform is included already so you don't need to download it separately.


However, I think your problem is actually that you have a space in your path to the BBMWebWorksDemo.zip file that you are trying to build. Are you actually enclosing that path in quotes? Perhaps change to the same directory and call it without the path.
