I'm a web designer and our site is having some problems, apparently, viewing pages with the Blackberry. I don't have a BlackBerry, just the QA guys (who are in a different city), so I can't see the problems they see with the site.
So I grabbed the simulator, installed, clicked the "Start MDS Simulator" shortcut and then have run the 7700 series simulator. I am getting the "Unable to connect to Mobile Data Service, please try again later".
On installation, I did not put it in local or remote host information, just left the defaults. I am using Win2000 Pro. I can't really tell if the MDS Simulator IS running - I see the command window open, the close, and then it launches a Windows Explorer window. Is that normal?
Any tips for this newbie?
I think you might not have java 1.4 installed or not have the class path settings done correctly. If this is the case, I think you have to right click my computer->advanced->environmental variable. Then you edit the system variable and add full path of the java bin folder (like c:\j2sdk1.4.0\bin). Then I think you should be fine :D
