Quicker Startup of Simulator

Hi all

Is there anyway to make the simluator startup quicker? Everytime I load up when I make a code change, its loading all the widgets that come with the Simulator (toolbox examples, mediaplayer sample, etc)

The only widget I have in devwidgets is my own, so while coding/developing locally, I just think its a lil silly I have to load all these others in

Any thoughts?

    You could also do it all at once by doing either of the following:
    1. In the simulator's config.xml file, search for the group node whose name attribute is "default-profile-widgets". Any widget you don't want you'd set its value node to NEVER

    2. Delete the zipped widget in the TV/Widgets dir

    Remove the data dir regardless which method you use.
  • I should also add you can start from scratch by completely removing the simulator directory and running it again to recreate if you get into trouble.
