App World Web Plugin



Having trouble using the app world web plugin to download app from the app world from my mac to my phone.


I installed the plugin and the phone showed up on the sync page and I managed to add an app to the phone, since then when I try to sync I get the error:


App World Web Plugin Error

An error has occurred communicating with the BlackBerry App World Client. If you have content protection enabled on your device, please disable and try again.


I tried this on Mac #2 and the same thing happened, worked fine first time then the same error.


I checked that content protection wasn't on (running os 5) in security settings - encryption - disabled


Tried it on Mac #3 get the error message straight away.


Any ideas?
