Desktop Manager 6.1 is not working/opening up

When I click on the desktop icon, the software looks like it is going to open up, but then I get an error message that says this:  "Blackberry Desktop Software has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience".  I have un-installed it and then re-installed it, but it keeps doing the exact same thing.  Any suggestions?

Have you restarted the computer after the install?

Re: Desktop Manager 6.1 is not working/opening up

gotcha.  Looks like you'll have to try a manual uninstall.  Not sure whats wrong.

This will point you in the right direction.

I also recommend after the uninstall, download and do a registry clean using ccleaner.

Keep re scanning the registry until it returns no errors and reboot.

 

You've probably already downloaded the latest version, but here is the link if needed:

You could consider running windows update too.
