Application loader software

My 8530 asked me if I wanted to update the blackberry application loader software so I said yes. It has been running for quite awhile now and is 10.6MB. Do I need this? What does it do? Can I stop it?


Thanks for your help and enjoy the day

Re: Application loader software


RIM released application loader update for BlackBerry Desktop Manager. It will be required for updating or installing/uninstalling device OS/applications. However, you can now download the latest Desktop Manager 6.0. Check this link
