Rim.Desktop.exe - Application Error



I installed blackberry desktop manager today and for some reason Im unable to open I get error


Rim.Desktop.exe - Application Error


Application has generated an exception that could not be handled


Process ID=0xdf0 (3568). Thread ID=0x680 (1664).


Click OK to terminate the application.

Click CANCEL to debug the application.


I'm running Windows XP Pro service pack 3, I tried updating dot net frame work, uninstalled program and reinstalled, deleted all Research in motion folders and Blackberry desktop manager folders in users app data and also in programe files


Anyone got some ideas?

I have the same problem, also with Win XP SP3. However I was able to download version 5.0.1 from cnet and that works!
