Re: Upgrading From OS 4.6 to 5

Perhaps you didn't install the 9000 version of the file?

Can you say what the filename is of the file you downloaded and installed?

 

Also, don't just "switch off" off your internet to your PC,... UNplug the connection as well.

About the internet connectivity, I have disabled my PC wifi adapter and turned off the wireless router.

Re: Upgrading From OS 4.6 to 5

Search your entire PC for "vendor..xml" and delete all instances of it.

Then empty your recycling bin and try again.

Re: Upgrading From OS 4.6 to 5

Found two other vendor files in hiding C: directory. Had to delete them all. This time the update files was found but there was an error with ABORT RETRY IGNORE options. The update started when I ignored the massage. Now using os 5

 

But now having problem connecting my BB with desktop manager. Reinstalled several times but no improvement.
