    After trying various setup instructions, I finally got the SDK working in Vista 64 bit.

    Follow the normal instructions.

    1. Install JDK6u14 for 64 bit.
    2. Instal VirtualBox 2.2.4
    3. Install Safari 4

    4.Reboot your PC.

    5. Install Palm WebOS SDK. Make sure to change the install path to c:\palm\sdk

    6. Reboot your PC.

    7. Download http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/dow...n32-x86_64.zip


    8. Open the zip file and copy the file swt.jar to the folder C:\Palm\SDK\share\jars

    9. Do not run the emulator from the shortcut or the exe.

    10. Open Command Prompt from Start menu - All Programs - Accessories.

    11. type cd C:\Palm\SDK\bin then hit enter.

    12. type palm-emulator then hit enter

    The emulator will then launchand go through a Virtual Machine setup process. Just approve any prompts and after a bit, your emulator will be running.

    In order for this to work, you should be logged into an account with administrator rights.

    Do you have the full JDK or just Java?

    Are you running as administrator?

    BTW, I have to give Coceyted credit for the tip about replacing the swt.jar file.

    I had forgotten where that was posted when I wrote this thread.

    No Worries I think the instructions you gave are the same as posted in this thread:

    They are pretty similar. The only difference is that I could not get it running by just clicking on the PalmEmulator.exe. It seems like the bat file does things a little differently as it worked when I ran that instead of the exe.

    Exactly. Skip the Exe part and run the command prompt and it works perfectly.

    LOL. I had read your original post in another thread where it said to run it from the exe. I now see that you added a suggestion to run the bat.

    Whats even better is to change the shortcut to point the the .bat. Works great for me.

    You should be running any commands from c:\palm\sdk\bin. It seems like you are currently in another folder

    Just type cd c:\palm\sdk\bin

    if if type c:\palm..... it doesn't find it bc it's in c:\program files (86)\palm...... i moed it to c:\palm..... and that's when i got the java error. i moved it back and got the 2nd error.

    You have to install it there to begin with.

    When you run the SDK install, you need to change the install to c:\palm\sdk.

    It sounds like you may have to uninstall the SDK, reboot and start again at step 5.

    damn- i mean thanks. 1 re-re-reinstall coming up. total uninstall is definitely getting a work out tonight.

    I compiled a bit of useful information for everyone and threw it together on a page: Install Palm WebOS SDK on 64bit System

    And you never gave me credit for the install order and where to pick up the files but thanks for not hijacking my image. Btw posting 8hrs after someone else with basickly same instructions is pretty fail.

    That was honestly my main reason in posting the link to the original thread. We all put in a little work, but regardless of who gets the credit it is all for the greater good. Glad you guys were able to help me and I, you.

    Get over it man. This isn't a contest. I just posted what worked for me after some trial and error. As you can see, my post started "After trying various setup instructions". I didn't claim to come up with all this on my own.

    I mistakenly thought Conceyted was the one that posted the bit about Eclipse. Plenty of people had posted the install order.



    You being an absolute jerk is the ultimate fail.

    ok kids, lets shake hands and make up...

    You all did you part, you all deserve some credit, but is not something to start a flamewar over..

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    I followed Blubble's instructions and got it up and running perfectly on my Vista 64 machine.

    Conceyted, your instructions are correct but I would say not noob friendly, if you just add a couple more details (like the command path) then your instructions (and links to all the files) were EXTREMELY helpful too!

    Hurray for SDK!
