Samsung 2010 Simulators won't launch

I've posted about this before with no answer and am trying again.  I am having approval problems with one Connected TV platform...the Samsung 2010 platform.  Neither version (US or EU) of the simulator will launch correctly. 

If i launch the US version from scratch it appears to load correctly, I see the dock for a second and then the screen is black.  No interaction with the screen or terminal does anything.  Here is the final output from the log:
TV OEM : Parsing /home/admin/TVWidgets/Konfabulator-Samsung-2010US/TVSystemProperties.txt for TV System properties
[0:00:00:000 11803] Logging is disabled
[0:00:02:282 11803] Loading Yahoo! Widget Engine...

[0:00:10:050 11795] enable secondary video
[0:00:10:050 11795] Television tuners enabled
If i close the simulator and try to run it again, it refuses to start and prompts me to delete the directory /home/admin/TVWidgets/Konfabulator-Samsung-2010US/TV.   When I delete the directory, the process cycles back to the beginning (launch with a black screen)



If I launch the EU simulator,  it loads the dock and widgets ok.  However, any attempt to interact with the simulator causes this error:
WE 00:00:18:996: [T:11941] !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'YWE::SmartPtr<Blueprint::Exception>'

This kills the simulator.

Any thoughts on what is causing these issues and how I can fix them?  I really need to test in a 2010 Simulator as one of my widgets is experiencing blocking issues on that platform only.

  • Are you still having this problem? Have you tried a fresh install of the Simulator?&nbsp;

  • I am using the 10.04 VM ion VMWare as suggested.  The VM is found here:  http://connectedtv.yahoo.com/developer/wdk/download/

    I have removed the TVWidgets folder from /home/admin and reinstalled the WDK from the above link.  I am still getting the same blank black screen with the Samsung 2010 US simulator but now I see this error:
    WM 00:00:10:513: [T:2106] Source/init3.js (Included file 'Source/Beaconer.js')

    The EU Simulator threw the same error from before as well:

  • Can you try to reset the simulator by either deleting the data directory/clicking the "Samsung 2010 EU->Samsung 2010 EU Simulator Reset" menu item? Also try keeping /devwidgets empty.

    Thanks,

  • Woot, emptying the /devwidgets directory and resetting the simulator worked for me.  Once again, thanks for your help
