Sorry that's wrong, if you go into into compatibility files, it should be there

Re: Blackberyy Bold 9700 Device Software Update

This is the exact instructions: Vista/Win7 users: In the apploader folder, simply click on "Compatibility files" to see the actual Vendor.xml file. Once you've got that - simply delete the vendor.xml file there (even if you've deleted or think you've deleted it in the folder previously) and voila, it will allow you to update to the newly installed OS!

You can find vendor.xml in the following folders on vista / 7:

 

If x86 windows (32-bit): 

 

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Apploader\

 

If x64 windows (64-bit):

 

C:\Program files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Apploader\

 

 

Hope this helps.
