Blackberry Plugin for Visual Studio V1.2 not working
Please Login to Remove!
i've installed Blackberry Plugin for Visual Studio V1.2.0. I know it installed correctly because i can see the config options in Tools --> Options --> Blacberry. Where i can see simulator 9000 v188.8.131.52. But when i run a web app and go to "browse with" there is no Blackberry option. Also in Tools --> Device Emulator Manager there is no Blackberry simulator.
What could have went wrong?
Is there any way to enable manually the "browse with" option and the emulator itself?
My config is
Windows Vista Home Premium SP2
Visual Studio 2008 Team System SP1
No man, and i can't find any answer on the net. The official document with issues from the Blackberry site doesn't event mention something remotely similar. I still hope someone can lend us a hand in here.
I posted the problem in another forum. this is the answer:
" Hi There,
The BlackBerry simulator does not show up in the Tools --> Device Emulator Manager. That section is only for Windows Mobile devices.
All Simulators for BlackBerry development are in the Tools --> Options --> BlackBerry section."
are you trying to do an widget application or a mds application? cos The MDS Runtime technology and its tooling is now End of Life.
In fact i'm just doing a traditional web application (.aspx) and i want to make it compatible with some mobile platforms. Since most modern mobile browsers support nearly all web standards i just want to see how would it look like on a BB screen. In Tools --> Options --> Blackberry i can see the plugin indeed but it can't be fired from there... nor does it appear on the "browse with" aspx contextual menu... Any idea?
I have installed the 5.0 version of the emulators but they didn't seem to be working. For starters there are no way to access the application from the start menu... i manually run it from "C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators 5.0.0\184.108.40.2067 (8530)\fledgelauncher.exe" and a blackberry device appears on my screen but there is nothing that i can do with it, not even the OS is loaded
what could be going wrong?
The .bat file that i have available is 8530.bat, i run it and it shows the same Non-functional BB Emulator. I have the newest JDK (i'm a developer). So i'm getting a little tired of trying to test my web app for the BB environment. I'll keep digging...
Does anyone really have this working? I've sturggled several days with trying to get Hello World to work. The Blackberry browser does not even start while the other browsers work just fine. Any help greatly appreciated.
