Unable to download applications from BB app world website

I am logged into the app world on my laptop but unable to download any applications to my playbook even when I am connected to the laptop through a USB cable and desktop software?

 

All attempts to use the print to go have failed as well.

Re: Unable to download applications from BB app world website

You need to download apps from App World OTA (over the air) with a wifi connection. At this time you cannot download apps over a wired connection.

For Print to Go, both the PlayBook and the computer must be on the same wireless network. Printing to a PlayBook not on the same network isn't currently supported.

Thanks. Both laptop & PB are on the same network but I keep getting persistent error 404.

Re: Unable to download applications from BB app world website

Some posters have recently found that the Print to Go problems on some computers is caused by the fax spooler. The Print to Go is sending the data there so they have to disable the fax spooler until the PTG is setup. Do a Forum search and you should find it.
