BB Desktop Manager v.6.x Available from BB here

You can get the Blackberry version of DM v.6.x here:

 

https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/Downloads/conta​ctFormPreload.do?code=577BCC914F9E55D5E4E4F82F9F0...

 

You may need to do a clean install:

 

BB instructions for that are here:

Hope this helps people.

 

I have 40+ years IT experience, and wasted several days on this :smileysad:.

 

Beautiful device (both technically and aesthetically); lousy software and support from what I can gather ...

 

People over on the Business Support forum are having similar problems ...

 

WHY do I have this spooky feeling that someone from BB should be telling people this ... ??

Re: BB Desktop Manager v.6.x Available from BB here

Hi,

 

I have just downloaded the above but it comes up with a Windows error messsage saying that it is not working.  When i do a compatability check it lists Windows SP [SP2] and does not list Windows 7 an an alternate OS.  Any suggestions?  Is it worth re-starting my PC?

Are you using W7 64 bit?

 

I actually have a later version of the DM s/w saved on my PC, but I do not think that BB would like me uploading this to my web site ...

Yes.  Im Using Windows 7 64 bit.  

 

The way that BB are seeming to rely on ther users to sort the problem out themselves i d not think that they would be bothered if you showed a link to your website.  If you read the BB text about the support forums they include a disclaimer that they do not necessarily monitor the support forums.

Yep, that's what I thought and I had already gone online and found an old version...hallelujah, I can now sync...but had to go to Version 6 Bundle 2475. Took me a while, but now I am not cursing BB and I agree...RIM should be doing something about this - or not sending out the update without SOLID field/beta tests.

 

Cheers
