BlackBerry Desktop v6.1.0 B38 Won't install and hangs on Windows 7 64 bit

Hey I have a problem every time I try to install the bb desktop manager it tells me it requires Microsoft visual C++ 2008 and it has the button install in the box that mentioned that. When I press install it shows that its installing the C++ 2008 which I already have in my PC then it stops and tells me that C++ 2008 is required to complete the instillation and then I press OK and everything shuts down then shows me the bb installer with the button finish. 


I have an acre laptop Aspire 5940G with operating system windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

Hey Ahmedeldegwy,

Welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.


Before running the BlackBerry® Desktop Software installer try installing Microsoft® Visual C++® 2008 SP1 first and then try doing the install.

The following article had a direct link to install Microsoft® Visual C++® 2008 SP1:

Wizard was interrupted before software could be completely installed


I hope this helps.
