Deploying OTA software error

Hi, we just upgraded to BES 5.0 I'm trying to setup third party software (Microsoft communicator 2007) on our BES server. We had BES 4.1.6 previously and never had an issue pushing it OTA to the devices.

I followed the guide from RIM, but when i try to add the application location, it will give me this error:


The application files are not packaged correctly. The application could not be published.


the file is a zip file (with .jad and .cod files underneath), the file is located under a share with full control permission. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

Re: Deploying OTA software error

Which zip file did you download, the OTA or desktop version?


I had the same issue and it was because I was trying to install the OTA package and not the desktop package.  Wish the directions would have clarrified this a little better.


Hope this helps
