Re: Rar Files?

Hello,

Could you perhaps clarify your post please? Notepad, rar, and games would be I think three separate topics, but I cannot tell from the brevity of your post. Please provide further details of exactly what you've done and exactly what you are seeing.

Thanks and let us know!

Re: Rar Files?

Well, from that, it sounds like the wrong thing to do. Opening the downloaded RAR app in Notepad would be incorrect...the downloaded RAR app needs to be installed to your BB, then used separately for it's own purposes. Notepad is for creating/reading/editing notes on your BB...so it's displaying the programmatic coding of the RAR app that you downloaded, which isn't actually usable in Notepad.

So, depending on what you downloaded for that RAR app, it may be ready to install. If it's a .jad file, then you can run it on your BB (via the File Manager) and that will install it to your BB. Otherwise, you'll need to be more explicit of exactly what you have downloaded.

Let us know!

"super app store"? I'm not familiar with that one. Many apps have, inside of their own configuration screens, settings to let you control the pathway by which the app will access their internet-based site. So, it's possible (for instance) that the app now says, inside of itself, to use "BES", but if you don't have BES, then that would prevent the app from finding a functional pathway for data use. But, again, I can only guess since I've no idea what specific app store that is.

Re: Rar Files?

The app's precise name is 'Superstore ' from MobiHand Inc. I saw the app when I were searching for dreamtorch theme v3 for my bb.One site said that the Superstore app have the theme but now it doesn't connect with the internet
