Something's fishy... Loaded latest desktop mgr. (6.1) Backup and Restore work fine. Loaded lastest apps. When trying to configure synch, get "unkown error" message box, plus get the following error msgs:
---The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
----Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package “BlackBerry Desktop Software.msi” in the box below
----“Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.3. The Windows Installer cannot continue.”
Another oddity- Found that old 4.3 desktop mgr still in my pgms. Tried to uninstall. Got following error msg:
----“Error 1316. A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\BlackBerry Desktop Software.msi”
One last clue: I got the same "unknown error" message recently when trying to sync my Bold 9650 withthe 4.3 desktop software.

It sounds like an earlier version of the BlackBerry® Desktop Software installed on your PC may be conflicting with this installation.
I would advise uninstalling both versions of the BlackBerry Desktop Software then reinstalling the latest version.
The following KB articles should provide more information on the issue.
"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable" when uninstalling BlackBerry Desktop Manager www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB10220
"Error 1316" InstallShield error is encountered when uninstalling or upgrading the BlackBerry Desktop Software

Thanks, Frankie S.,
I too was thinking I should try to uninstall the v4.3 desktop manager that's till on my PC. Unfortunately the software will not uninstall- it gets to a certain point in the process, then shows and error and backs out. I tried cleaning up my registry with System Mechanic to no avail. I'm out of the office this week but will try to recreate the problem when I return and advise the forum of the exact error message I get when trying to uninstall v4.3.
Thanks very much for your reply!
