BREWMP not installing toolset on windows 8

Forums:

Hello,

 

   I downloaded the latest BREWmP SDK and while downloaing it complains that "Additional thirdparty components are required before this toolset can be instaalled. The latest version of the BREW MP SDK installer will install this software"  Then there is a get SDK button however I am already installing the SDK and after the SDK is installed, there is NO TOOLSET to be found. I tried downloading just the toolsets and running after the SDK was installed but still doesnt work.

 

I really need the toolset for apploader otherwise we cannot test our apps on devices. Can someone please help with this so we can get apploader working? 

 

thanks.

Sorry, but we do not support SDK tools on Win8 and do not have any current plans to support Win8 today or in the future.

I've been able to get around the Qualcomm installer issues.  Here are some instructions for doing it:

Download 7Zip
Extract their ~800MB SDK using 7Zip
Install the dotNetFx40_Full_setup.exe if needed
Install the VC++ redistributable if needed in \$_OUTDIR\VC2010
Install BREWMPSDKManager.exe
Install BMP_PLATFORM...exe
Install BREWMPTESTS.exe
Extract BREWMPTools.exe
Copy files from \BREWMPTools\Toolset...\ to C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\BREW MP SDK (including Toolset directory)
Copy files from \BREWMPTools\$_OUTDIR\ to C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\BREW MP SDK\Toolset... (overwrite if bin folder exists in Toolset directory)
Open SDK Manager, you should see the toolset you installed
Click star to activate it and wait until it completes
Now you can open loader.exe at C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\BREW MP SDK\Toolset...\bin\loader.exe

Hope this helps,
Tom
