Problem with newest BB Link download sofware

Hi there everyone,


I've just bought a brand new q10 and fired up my trusty 6-year old HP Pavilion laptop, OS Vista 32-bit on-board, eager to download BlackBerry link and transfer my life across, from my 9700 Bold. It seemed to download fine, but then when I try to run it, I get the following error message: 


                  Not a valid Win32 application


Looked at the system requirements, and its supposed to work for Vista.Tried deleting and downloading it again, same problem. Tried looking for other websites with the software available for download, but no joy. Please help if you can. 


Thanks guys.

Hello jeevster,


Thank you for your question regarding the issue you are experiencing with installing BlackBerry Link.


Have you attempted running the file from it's location instead of saving it and running it locally? If not, give this a try and let us know if you experience the same issue.
