Yahoo Synching?

Have I lost it or why can't I synch to Yahoo in version 4.3? 4.2 worked flawlessly. The support webpage says that Yahoo PIM is a synch option in 4.3. Thanks for your help!!

Re: Yahoo Synching?

Hi jimnickerson


If you do not see the option to choose Yahoo to synchronize with you can try to follow this KB article

This article basically states to register a dll file by following these instructions:


Close the BlackBerry Desktop Manager


Windows XP - go to start, run and type CMD

Windows Vista - go to start, programs, accessories, right click command prompt and select run as administrator


In the command line window type the following:

cd "\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\IS71 Connectors\Yahoo Connector"

regsvr32 DCSXlator.dll


Try to synchronize again.



If you can choose Yahoo, but are having issues synchronizing, please give more details including any steps you take to synchronize, error messages you are getting, etc.

Re: Yahoo Synching?

Thanks so much for the reply. It worked flawlessly. However, if I wouldn't teach computing it could be a little tough. Can't Yahoo be added as a default choice? Thanks again!! I really, really appreciate it!!  Smiley Happy
