I get an error message when opening Desktop Manager that it cannot find AppLoader.msi and it not allow me to move past that point or cancel the install (I have to close the application through Task Manager). I have uninstalled and re-installed Desktop Manager (believing AppLoader would download with it), but error message continues and I cannot find that file anywhere on my system. Is there someplace I can download the missing AppLoader.msi file? Or a different approach to take?

Which version of the Desktop Maanger are you installing? I'd try the following to perform a clean uninstall of the Desktop Manager software
After you follow all the steps and reboot your computer, try and install Desktop Manager 5.0

Much obliged for the suggestion, but unfortunately it did not work. I had previously been attempting to install v5.0 and tried that as the final step here as well. It appears to install correctly, but immediately upon launching the application I get the same error message.
Is there anyplace else where the update would be on the system as a separate install from the primary software itself?

What about the clean uninstall steps you were given? Did those go smoothly? There are a lot of steps, including registry edits...necessary to accomplish a true clean uninstall. And only then would re-attempting the install be appropriate.
What PC OS are you running? If XP, be certain you are logged into an acccount that has full administrative rights... If Vista, that is also necessary, but you should also use the "Run As Administrator" option to execute everything.
Let us know.

Windows Installer - "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable." Instructions say Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation packer 'apploader.msi. I went through the clean uninstall process as recommended.
Ultimately I did get rid of the Windows Installer prompt when I am loading the Desktop Manager. However, when I tried to synch I got an Intellisync unknown error. I had downloaded the 4.7 version of the Desktop Manager. Since I could not synch, I tried updating to the Desktop Manager to 5.0. After the download and the original problem was back. I was able to synch but still get the same Windows Installer message. Also - I was not able to uninstall the Updater and the previous Desktop Manager version 4.5. Going through the uninstall process, I got the same Windows Installer prompt - "the feature ...unavailable. Any suggestions??

I have the same problem running XP pack3. I searched all files including hidden and apploader.msi is not on the computer. I did the clean uninstall including the two HKEYs and installed DM 05 no help. I did another clean install and tried DM06 same problem. I did another search for apploader.msi still not there. I give up, any other suggestions. Thanks

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Well, I suppose yes...if you need the app, you must download it and install it...you can obtain it here:
