Chinese input cannot be found on OS 7.1 Bundle 1909

I have upgraded to OS 7.1 Bundle 1909 (v7.1.0.658, Platform 5.1.0.485) but there is no Chinese input available. Only English and Spanish.  

 

I have tried to follow the steps listed in Article ID: KB13067, but all the Device Software available for downloads are in .exe format and I am using a Mac which cannot run .exe files.  So please see my problems below:

 

1. As mentioned, I am running the Desktop Software on a Mac and I cannot run .exe Device Software files, even though they are labelled Multilanguage.

2. When I try to add the Chinese input using Desktop Manager, under Applications tab, there is no Chinese input to be found for me to add on.

3. When I try to add the Chinese input using my Bold 9900, under Options -> Typing and Input -> Typing, there is no Chinese input to be found for me too add as well.

 

So please advise how can a MAC USER like me add on Chinese input to my Bold using Desktop Manager.  Thanks and hope to get some replies soon to help me resolve the above problems.  Thanks.

Hello gilbertgoh, 

 

Welcome to the forums. 

 

Have a look at this post which will walk you through doing a software update using a Mac, in the post it will cover how to install additional input languages.

Re: Chinese input cannot be found on OS 7.1 Bundle 1909

Thanks for providing the link -SR but I have Desktop Software Manager and can do EVERYTHING listed in the link you have provided. Problem is none allows me to add Chinese input and this is not available in the 1909 build for OS7.1.

 

What I really want is the downloadable file which can be found under Article ID: KB13067, a .EXE file which can only be ran on Windows, and for the MAC version of this files to be made available for download by Blackberry.  This file is another build of OS7.1 for 9900, which contains Chinese input.

 

So where can i download the MAC version of this file.  That is my real question.  Please help -SR.

 

Cheers,
Gilbert Goh (Mr)
