Can I install a BB OS to my PC, without having it upgrade my device

This weird question comes about because somehow I updated my Bold to 4.6.0.185 with an official RIM release, but then I deleted the OS from my PC.  Everything works fine on the device, but I think the Blackberry Desktop Manager is confused about what OS is installed.

 

I don't want to have to go through the install again including updating the device, as you have to re-setup some programs, put in passwords, etc.  I'd like to just have the BDM see my current version installed on my PC

 

Thanks a lot.

just download OS 4.6.0.185 on your PC and install it in your Desktop Manager.
that's all.

then you can install application from there.

But won't it re-install on the device as soon as I connect it to the USB port with the Desktop Manager running?  I don't to re-install the device software.

1) installation from your PC to your device is not automatical, you still have to say YES at some point

2) it won't try and install again if the versions are the same between your device and the Desktop Manager.
