Installing Rhodes, Running app in Blackberry Simulator in windows

1. Download the Instant Rhodes installer from and install it.  This will install Ruby, Rhodes.

 Note :  For this you will need to create account and login to the blackberry website.

3. Create a sample rhodes app. 

rhodes app myspace

4. Go to build.yml in the app, and change the version for blackberry,. 

bbver: 6.0
5. do 'rhodes-setup' for adding Java path  
$ rhodes-setup
We will ask you a few questions below about your dev environment.
JDK path (required) (C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_21): C:/Program Files/Java/j

for other paths just skip. 

6. Go to Rhodes installation path and find the rhobuild.yml. In my system the path is,

add this lines in rhobuild.yml for blackberry version 6.0
      jde: C:/Program Files/Research In Motion/BlackBerry JDE 6.0
      mds: C:/Program Files/Research In Motion/BlackBerry JDE 6.0/MDS
      sim: 9800

7. Run the app., rake run:bb

This opens blackberry simulator. Now find your app in the apps menu.
