I'm taking the Pega DME7 course with the self-study option. I'm trying to complete the exercise for Decisioning Simulations.
So, I tried to open the Visual Business Director. In the "Views" tab, I clicked on the name "Simulation", and a new VBD window opened, however nothing was displayed there. The screen was completely empty.
Please, what do I need to do to be able to see the VBD content?
Since September 2015, Google updated their browser and stopped supporting the applet API that is used by Visual Business Director. So I'm assuming you tried using Google Chrome browser. Please try again using Internet Explorer.
BTW, in the latest version of "Pega 7" (v7.2) it works again in Google Chrome since we switched to HTML5.
I have updated system with java 8 update 91 , but still the same empty screen for VBD in Chrome , I am using "marketing_713ml9_pvs_20151201" Virtual Image from Pega Academy. Same problem in IE 11 also . can you please suggest how to go get VBD working.
When you connect to PRPC, are you using prpc.local? Or do you use IP address?
Also, can you please enable the console in Java configuration (Windows start button->type in Java in the 'Search programs and files') , select Configure Java. And check Show console as shown in the screenshot below:
