I have noticed the Hardware Simulator crashes regularly with a big string of Java errors, but if I restart it always fixes itself,so no big deal.
Not so the CPU Emulator. It crashes constantly, never at the same spot, and it is fatal. Here is the start of the stack trace, which is always similar:
Exception in thread "Thread-30" java.lang.ClassCastException: sun.java2d.NullSurfaceData cannot be cast to sun.java2d.d3d.D3DSurfaceData
I spotted a post from 2009 referring to this error but there was no advice or resolution. I am using JRE 1.6.0_21-b07 under XP.
I must say, no offense, but the quality of the software seems at odds with the quality of the book (which is absolutely outstanding). Anyway, any advice appreciated!
