Re: Blackberry PlayBook desktop wont install on pc

Windows or Mac? What version of Windows or Mac?


P.s. You don't use desktop software to sideload converted android apps, you use anothet tool, which varies with your laptop OS. 


However, come back with the info asked in previous post and this post.
