Software asking for device password when there isnt one

Hello! I have signed into the app world with my blackberry ID and i plugged my playbook into my computer with a usb cord. The app world  says "You have a device password enabled. Enter your BlackBerry device password to continue" but there is no password on my device.

 

Thanks!

"It is not possible to download apps on the computer to the playbook, this is the browser/system telling you that it cannot be done!"

 

thanks wolf! big help!

 

So you cant download apps onto the computer then onto your playbook. RIM needs to say this not ask for something that doesnt exist

the error message is indeed misleading.

 

the requirements for AppWorld to install apps on a PlayBook are listed in this article from the public knowledge base:

KB26774 Requirements to use BlackBerry App World on BlackBerry PlayBook tablet

 

speifically, the tethered method (= web to desktop to tablet) is indicated as non-working in the last bullet point.
