Re: alerts

The file you loaded to your PC is a self extracting file that when you open it, will put the files where BB Desktop Software

can find them. After you run the file, configure the BB and Desktop Software like you were going to do a backup. I would do a backup first just in case.

Then select Application loader, add remove, and bbalerts should be there to load.

Let us know if you need anymore assistance.
