Can not remove System Module

My app consists of 2 modules. One System module with autostart and one "conventional" module.  I have never had any problems updating the modules with Desktop Manager until now. The system module refuses to get updated and it is impossible to remove it. I am stuck with an old version. If I do an uninstall via Desktop Manager only the nonsystem module is removed. Trying to remove the system module via Options, Device, Application Management does not work. The module is there but an option "Delete" is not available for this module.

 

Trying an installation via Desktop Manager it flags as an "update" but the sysm module is not updated

 

Platform Version on my Torch is 6.6.0.236.  Software version is 6.0.0.668  and  my Desktop Manager version is  6.0 Bundle 2949.

 

I am completely stuck! Can not update the system module. This is a new problem. I have been developing this setup for several years and never had a problem like this before. It is extremely frustrating

Re: Can not remove System Module

from a dev perspective: no clue how that could come to be.
from a user perspective: use javaloader with -f (force flag) to remove a module, this should work for every module.

if that is not sufficient for you you could file a bug for DM in jira maybe.

Thanks simon_hain.

Could you elaborate a bit. Not familiar with the javaloader

Re: Can not remove System Module

javaloader is a command line tool, it ships with the JDE or eclipse plugin, in eclipse you can find it at plugins\net.rim.ejde\vmTools (where the sigtool is located as well).

usage to delete a cod file would be:
javaloader -u -f erase codfile.cod

check -? for other options, it is a very handy tool to make screenshots, extract the logfiles, load or erase files etc.
