Thanks for this, Joerch -- it was exactly what I needed. While I can understand the logic behind wanting people to be working with the most up to date UI simulator, it seemed like more work than it was worth to figure out the full Cygwin install, especially since all I wanted was a slightly easier way to perfect my WPS screens.

Do you think it would make sense to add a link to your page to the UI Simulator Wiki page?


runready , actual simulators for windows:

Search by model:

or all simulators together:
(ca. 3MB, 7zip SFX)


To build it your own grab the source

for instance

and grab

extraxt it anywhere to the drive

change to that directory



then run


now you in the cygwin console window, hope you like it...

read the instructions
