How do I get the Blackberry Tablet Simulator running?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


Can you give me a hand with my BlackBerry?

I got BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet running on the Adobe AIR platform. When I try to install it on a 64-bit Windows machine I get this message:


Win64 not supported

The author of the package you are installing did not include support for this platform

Is this an installer issue? The Simulator seems not to be 64-bit compatible installer for the SDK.

Thanks a lot!

How do I get the Blackberry Tablet Simulator running?


The first thing is to start Black MDS Stimulator to ensure that it is functioning smoothly. From the taskbar Click on Start and select Programs, from the Research in Motion, click on Blackberry Email and MDS Services Simulators and the MDS too. Then you will need to click on Start the Blackberry Smartphone Simulator, once you are there open the Browser.

From the Menu, click Go to and select OK. You will know if the Blackberry MDS Simulator is in perfect working condition if the Home page appears, other if the Home Page does not appear then ensure that the Blackberry MDS Simulator was actually started. Check that the Mobile Data Service Simulator failure to launch is because of the Blackberry MDS Simulator inability to Start correctly and the solutions thereto.

Currently, Blackberry applications can only be developed and tested on Windows machines, due to the fact that Research in Motion's Blackberry simulators are Windows EXEs. Technically speaking, you can develop and build your Blackberry applications on any platform supported by Titanium (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux), but you will not be able to test them in the Blackberry simulator on any platform other than Windows. For that reason, these instructions assume you will be setting up a Windows system for Blackberry development using Titanium.

Most of the requirements that we list here are based on Research In Motion's own list of requirements for using their Blackberry Java Plug-In for Eclipse,which is what Titanium uses to access the Blackberry Java APIs.

You'll need Microsoft Windows XP or higher. If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, be sure to nevertheless download 32-bit versions of Java and Eclipse as per the instructions below.

You need to have a Java Development Kit with version 6 (a.k.a. 1.6), specifically JDK 6 update 10 or higher — not anything lower than JDK 6 update 10, and not JDK 7 or higher (it must be JDK 6.) At the time of this writing, JDK 6 update 20 is the most current version of JDK 6 and can be downloaded using the following link.


(Note: Even if you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, please download a 32-bit version of Java.)
