Firefox OS SImulator could not work on windows 8 #310

I'm using Firefox OS Simulator 2.0 on FIrefox 18.0.2, and windows8.
I could unlock the lockscreen, but couldn't swipe homescreen.
Then, I could tap the icon ( like browse icon ), but the app didn't launch.
I could only unlock the lockscreen.

Did FIrefox OS Simulator support for windows8?

Best regards.


I don't yet have a Windows 8 installation, so I haven't tested the Simulator on Windows 8. Thus I'm not sure of the status of the Simulator on that OS. However, I have requested a license and installation media for the OS and will install it and test the Simulator on it once I receive it (ETA: one week).


Hi mykmelez,

Thanks for your confirmation.
I'm waiting it that Firefox OS Simulator move on Windows8.

I now have a Windows 8 installation and will look at this next week.


I've been diagnosing several issues with Windows builds, and I found a couple problems, so I created a test build with fixes for them.

I'm not sure this build will resolve your issue, but please try it out, and let me know how it works for you!


I just pushed new preview builds (Windows, Mac, Linux) which resolve this issue on Windows 8!
