Re: error when installing update for desktop software

same problem but my Windows 7 update history shows it was installed 8/6/2011. someone else mentioned there was a security issue with it, but this SP1 was supposed to fix that last year. help!

Re: error when installing update for desktop software

I'm having the exact same problem - I even downloaded the update from Microsoft 3 times and I still get the error message.  The last few updates of BBdesktop have been problematic for me - I had to skip the last one because the sync kept on crashing.  My loyalty to the brand is beginning to falter....:smileymad:

Re: error when installing update for desktop software

I know. I am getting extremely frustrated with desktop software. The program keeps crashing every time I try to start it. 

I can not sync my email or my media files. 

I am thinking of changing phones

Re: error when installing update for desktop software

there are now more security issues and microsoft is actually recommending that you do not install the program at all.
