Does anybody know how to run the earthworks simulator using windows 10?
The Earthworks 1.10 sim works great on Windows 10. The install package includes Bluestacks Android emulator, so they all run on one screen. You can use an Android display, but it's not required.
My first install attempt failed because you need to run the .exe.zip file 'as administrator.'
As of right now you will need an android tablet. I will email you the setup.
Thanks Pat. I'll take a look at it.
Patrick, I have been running the earthworks emulator on 10 different PC since last November by using blue stacks. Just tricked the pc into thinking is was talking to another computer by running a short Ethernet cable out one port and back in another port. It worked great for training last winter.
I tried to do that yesterday. I have the bluestacks installed but I don't know what to do after that?
I can't find a step by step instruction from Trimble or SITECH.
You have to do some stuff with the IP settings on your PC. I'll just got a new laptop and need to re-install the emulator and I'll write up some instructions.
Hi Eric, you will find the instructions that you need in the User Guide, Chapter 2 - Setting up the Trimble Earthworkssimulator platform. This user guide is a pdf document which can be found in the same folder as the EWSim.exe file that is used to launch the simulator.
The User Guide also contains other information that you may find useful.
Thank you Mark
Mark do you have a link to this guide? The guide i have from Sitech is not showing Chapter 2 - Setting up the Trimble Earthworks simulator platform.
Hi Roan Blake from v1.10 you can access the User Guide via the F1.Help button, as well as finding it in the folder that you extracted all the files to upon initial launching of the application file.
For versions earlier than v1.10 it can be found in the folder that you extracted all the files to upon initial launching of the application file.
Right-click to run the Simulator_Earthworks_1_10_0.exe.zip 'as administrator.'
Once installed, run the C:\Simulator_Earthworks_1_10_0.exe\EWSim.exe
Then you can run the operator app from the shortcut on your desktop, which should automatically launch in Bluestacks.
Thank you Nelson
Where can I download this from?
I'm getting it from my Sitechdealer

Thank you Erik.
Would anyone mind putting the install file up on Dropbox, etc to download?
I got to this point and that's it. I'm doing something wrong here.
You need to run EWSim first. Look on your C: drive in the folder with the same name as the install file.
Just so that I can understand the issue that you are having, can you please confirm if you have run through the exact step sequence that is documented in the User Guide, section 2.10.1 Optional—BlueStacks Android emulator.
I am assuming you are using v1.10 when I say section 1.10.1. Older versions of the guide may apply a different number to this section.
I thought i did twice. SITECH also told me that they can't make it work but I don't think they tried hard enough because they have the TD520. It's okay though, I'll ask our company if I can replace my ipad issued to me with android tablet. Thanks for all the help though.
Let me know if you keep having problems and I will be happy to help you look for a solution.
Many people are using the simulator without any problems and it is thoroughly tested by my team prior to each release, so we know that it works for most people.
Mark, do you still use a eithernet jumper to make the connection or is it done in the computer.
I made it work with the jumper and BlueStacks last November for training.
Hi Ken Bork, the connection is done in the pc by editing a particular file. The details of how to do this have been included in the User Guide that is bundled with the simulator since we verified it working with Bluestacks in the v1.9 release.
I have had this 1.7 version running on windows 10 for about a year and it worked great for training.
Thank you. SITECH came and help me out and it's working now.
I got it all mixed up. Found out that inside the folder has 1.7 and 1.10 version and mixing all things up.
Can I add my own design so I can play around with our actual job design?
I`am very intrested in this simulator.
Is there anybody who can supply me the installation file?
I'm hoping for the same thing.

Yes u can add you files it worked for me in the Dupo folder there is another folder with the job files in it I copied to.
You can add projects to you emulator by going to your C:Simulator/Files/ Earthworks/Projects and paste in your project from your earthworks library.
