Desktop Manager 6 won't start

The blackberry splash screen pops up, followed by a second window that just remains completely white. Here is the contents of my Desktop.log file:

Re: Desktop Manager 6 won't start

Hmm, have you tried reinstalling the software?or maybe try getting a downgrade of the blackberry desktop software, try upgrading your .NET framework etc.. These methods might work, sorry if they don't

Re: Desktop Manager 6 won't start

I've got the exact same problem... :'(  I had to flash my phone, and subsequently got an upgrade I'd been longing for... to 6.0. When I upgraded my desktop software to match my new phone upgrade, the software on my laptop JUST WOULDNT start!! The screen stays white. I've tried reinstalling from - the internet, and from -the cd, but it stays the same.    I decided to try a different approach, and connected the phone to my laptop, and now I cannot find my BBMessenger app, or my APPWorld button.    If I could find AppWorld, I'd probably just re-download BBM, but now they're both gone!   ...What do I do? Go back to version 5 on both counts? Does that imply I'd have to flash my phone again?  Just so *frustrated!!

Re: Desktop Manager 6 won't start

I have the exact same issue.  This is ridiculous-  Neither an unintall or repair seem to make a difference. The app just hangs.  RIM- are you going to fix this?

Re: Desktop Manager 6 won't start

Yes I've uninstalled and reinstalled various times, I've completely removed and reinstalled all of my .NET framework components, and I've tried a lower version of the software, which didn't seem to work with my device (9900)
