Before you can build your mobile applications for BlackBerry, you need to prepare your development PC:
- Note: You can only build mobile applications for BlackBerry on Windows XP (32-bit) or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit).
- Download and install node.js.
- Download the QNX Momentics IDE.
- After you install the QNX Momentics IDE, open the installation folder and run qde.exe. Let the QNX Momentics IDE guide you through the installation of the Native SDK for BlackBerry 10.
BlackBerry Drivers and Emulator
To test your application in either an emulator or a real device, you will need BlackBerry drivers. They are included in the BlackBerry Desktop Software, which you can download from us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/.
You also need that software to run your application on the emulator, since the USB cable simulation is not available otherwise.
In order to deploy your application for real devices, it must be signed, so you must have a signing key installed. If you do not have a signing key already, register one.
Once you have your signing key, you must configure your development PC to use it.
