Using BlackBerry Desktop Manager & CD"s that came with our Phones

Help!  Our Family has 3 BlackBerry's (2 Curves & 1 Pearl) and one Home Computer (With Windows Vista).  The BlackBerry Desktop manager & CD's work fine for the Curves but not for the Pearl.  In order to use the Desktop Manager & CD for the Pearl - advised to uninstall the version for the Curve first because "a newer version of software found"  How can I enable computer so it can run both programs without having to install/uninstall the different software versions for the Curves and the Pearl?

I would advise trying that newer version to see if you run into any troubles with your Curve before you assume you need to isolate instillations. You might just be able to work with both the Curve and Pearl on the newer version.

You may also go to the site and there is an option to download drivers, you may be ablet to just install drivers that you need to the version of DM you already have.

 

Hope this helps.
