Better luck today loading the $PALM Pre Emulator

Yesterday, I decided to install the Mojo SDK for the Palm Pre (open to everyone at developer.palm.com). That wasn’t going so well, because of the emulator’s dependence on VirtualBox, and my version was too old for use with the emulator.

Today, I had better luck on a different machine, but still had conflicts with running processes which I didn’t expect to have conflicts with (Paint?):

palm-webOS-SDK_conflicts

After closing down Office Communicator and Outlook (which isn’t an automatic task), I was able to install and launch the emulator:

emulator-startin

And here is my first running of webOS:
