Mobile Emulator in Netbeans

I am writing a MIDP 2.0 MIDlet app in Netbeans 6.5. I have a MIDlet that compiles without errors. When I run the MIDlet the system cannot launch the emulator, with the messages:

Starting emulator in execution mode
The system cannot find the path specified.

I installed Netbeans 6.5 with the Micro Edition component(s) (or thought I did per the Netbeans installation instructions). Can anyone suggest what is missing or misplaced and what I can do to run the MIDlet in the emulator. Thanks for the help.

some things to check:

1. in the project pane, right click on your project and select Properties. Click on Platform. The Emulator platform should at least show "Sun Java (TM) Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 for CLDC". In Windows, it is installed (by default) under C:\Program Files\NetBeans 6.5\mobility8\WTK2.5.2

2. under Tools -> Plugins, go to the "Installed" tab. Sorting by Category, I have the following installed for the Mobility category: Java ME CDC, Components Support, Mobility, Visual Mobile Designer, Mobility End to End. Which ones are you missing? (I am not sure which of the plugins install the Wireless Toolkit
I agree. Here's the link:
