Desktop manager in english

Hi,

Whenever i install the BlackBerry Desktop manager, the program defaults the language to arabic, and thus installs in arabic. Not even changing the country would turn the setup to english.

How can i install the program in engish, knowing that i just downloaded the latest multilanguage version from blackberrry website.

please advise,

regards,

Re: Desktop manager in english

Just for the record, the english only desktop manager is not there at your link.  There is only the multi-language version.  The English only link is for the DEVICE MANAGER.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Thank you for that update...as you may have noticed, I posted that link 2.5 years ago...so it's not all that unlikely that they may have changed the content in the intervening time period.

 

Good luck!

Re: Desktop manager in english

It still says multi-language.  I assume there is no longer an English only file.  That's a same because it was about 1/3rd the size.  Software providers seem to love making there files unnecessarily huge!

Re: Desktop manager in english

After hours of pulling my hair out i just discovered the way around this. Go to the blackberry link shortcut ... right click on it and go to properties .... click open file locations and delete the ar folder ... done! :smileymad:

Re: Desktop manager in english

By looking at what "English" was in Arabic I worked out that if you download the Multilanguage file. Double clock the exe. On the pull down menu click the 3rd one down and then click the right button to install. It will then be in English. Hope that helps. Drove me mad for hours!!!
