Default MDS activation with MDS emulator

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,

I have performed the enterprise activation on my BB.
The productive BES server does not have MDS services running and I would like to test my MDS Studio application on a real device.
So I installed an MDS runtime and thought I could just configure it to connect to the MDS emulator running on the localhost. My BB does not seem to like that emulator server and the only response I get is "Activation error" with no further explanation "WHY and HOW and WHAT'S WRONG".

Can I somehow activate the MDS runtime on the real device to communicate with the MDS emulator server ???

Many thanks in advance for any useful hints or just words of sympathy.

Regards, Andrew

P.S. Every time I'm trying to activate it from the device, a new log entry appears in MDS studio:
Device activation listener. | MDS Connection Service not found. | DevicePIN=20460a8c; ConnServiceURL=BYMDS.BAYER-AG.COM/; Exception=Connection Service not found.;

BYMDS.BAYER-AG.COM is actually my BES server, that was configured for enterprise activation and not the BES emulator, that I'd like to use with MDS runtime. If I can enter a server name in that dialogue on the device, shouldn't it be taken?
