Running Samsung TV Apps SDK on Boot Camp

I have windows running bootcamp and tried to launch Samsung TV Apps SDK(IDE); however, it crashes windows every launch.

Tested so far; but crashed all the time:
– Windows 7 32bit on Boot Camp 3 (iMac, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro)
– Windows Vista 32bit on Boot Camp 3 (iMac)

Cannot run Samsung TV IDE due to side-by-side configuration error:
– Windows 7 64bit on Boot Camp 3

Finally, I succeed to run IDE and emulator without crash on:
– Windows XP SP3 on VMWare

My iMac is running well with heavy VMWare development environment so far. However, Samsung TV IDE was not my development style.
Thus, I run Aptana 3 on Mac and created a project for the application, which is located on:
[code]{Your Mac}/[C] Window XP/Program Files/Samsung/Samsung TV Apps SDK/Apps/{Your Project}[/code]
I modify the source code directly from Aptana on Mac; the changes reflect immediately on the project. It is a bit fast performance and effective rather than developing Samsung TV Apps IDE.

According to guys who are in same situation (, it seems caused by “OS X file system read feature”. It looks like Samsung TV SDK attempts to write something to Mac HD (What? Why?) and fails operations with happy-smile-calm blue screen(Arrrrrrrggggggg).

What they are suggesting is disabling access to Mac HD by renaming the system file:
* Just choose any new filename. Recommended “AppleMNT.sys.bak”
Then, restart windows after you change the filename.

On windows 7 64bit, if Samsung TV IDE will bring up the error like:
[code]Error: The application has failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail[/code]

Download and install “vcredist_x86.exe” from “Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update” and restart

Both above solutions fixed the issues on Boot Camp and I am happy to develop Samsung TV Apps. Hooray!
