Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Sadly, no...the BlackBerry Desktop Software is required for extracting information out of the protected device Databases. They are not accessible to Windows Explorer.

 

What is going on with not being able to install DM? Does something go wrong? Or are you prevented from even trying?

 

Good luck and let us know!
