Flash Builder 4.5 - Problems with installing a Playbook Debug Token

Last week I reported the issues I have with my attempts installing a debug token on the latest Blackberry Playbook Simulator (1.0.1) to Blackberry Dev Support...

"Dear support,

I have been battling with the new debug token feature for the Playbook Simulator and am at a point to give up.

I tried using the Flash Builder 4.5 UI to create the debug token bar file, but get an error message saying "Unable to parse issue date from debug token."

Once I change the system and all Flash Builder / Java configurations to US local settings, the bar file is created. Unfortunately I'm not located in the US and hence keeping my PC on US settings is a no go.

I also tried the command line creation and that works with my UK settings.

However, the deployment is not functioning, UI and command line deployment fail. Well, to be precise, the deployment as such works...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.5\sdks\blackberry-tablet-sdk-
1.0.1\bin>CD "\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.5\sdks\blackberry
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.5\sdks\blackberry-tablet-sdk-
1.0.1\bin>blackberry-deploy -installDebugToken "D:\BlackberryApps\DebugToken\deb
ugtoken.bar" -device -password al....86
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.5\sdks\blackberry-tablet-sdk-

pps\DebugToken\debugtoken.bar" -device -password al....86
Sending Install Debug Token request...
Info: Action: Install Debug Token
Info: File size: 2246

...but the VM reports an invalid token

This problem has been reported on the developer forum, but no solution has yet been provided.

One observation I made is the following: the device ID reported by the Flash Builder UI is different to the PIN shown in the device:


I tried to create the debug token with both ids, but neither works. Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards
