Loading cod files on to playbook

My first question is,

 

Is that possible to load cod files on playbook ?

 

I have tried these methods to load the cod file that I developed in eclipse on to playbook.

 

 1.  In eclipse, tried the option Load Project(s) on device.

It did not work. All it does when I do that is, it just complies and goes off..its not installing the app on the device,

 

 2. Started the app loader, (Program Files --> Common Files --> App loader --> loader) and tried to hit next, it is saying

"You need to use the Blackberry Desktop Software to update this device." But the desktop software says, it isthe latest version 

 

 

Please let me know if there are any other methods to load the application on to playbook. Also, please let me know if I am doing anything wrong..

PB can only load BAR files. COD files are for BB cell phones.

Re: Loading cod files on to playbook

No. COD files are Java applications. BAR files are currently either native C++ apps, Adobe AIR apps or WebWorks apps. They are totally different formats and cannot be converted. PB does not support COD formatted files.
