Internet won't work with Blackberry simulator.Solution:
This one was a crappy crappy fix. I hated it largely because I hate Blackberry. Maybe this will prevent everyone from having the same issue. I will list the things you need to do in order to get the simulator to work in windows.
- All of the install packages I'm about to list can be found with a simple Google search, I recommend always getting the latest versions.
Install all of these in the order listed aboveNow you need to add and Environment variable
- Blackberry Simulator (which ever simulator you want to simulate)
- Click start button
- Right click "computer"
- Click "properties"
- If it's windows 7, Click "Advanced System Settings" then click "envrionment variables", If it's XP click the "Advanced" tab then click "Environment Variables"
- In "System variables" Click "New" and in "Variable Name" put "JAVA_HOME" and for "Variable value" put the path to your java folder
It should be something like this "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24"
Now run the MDS first, then start up your simulator. If the MDS starts and then disappears quickly it is not started. It needs to stay up. If this happens you probably didn't put your environment variable in correctly.
And now after all this BS you can surf the internet on your simulator that will surely be off market and outdated by iOS or Android in about 13 months.
