I have purchased a used blackberry 8330 curve. works great and i'd like to download the desktop manager as I believe I could sync a calendar of some sort w/ this program? I tried to download from blackberry website version 4.7 with and without media manager...same error comes up after 1/2 hr of downloading : ""C:\ProgramFiles\470_b050_english.exe is not valid Win32 application"". am I downloading the wrong program? I am pretty new at this smartphone stuff, so 'smartphone for dummies' instructions would be helpful. thanks a bunch! oh--I have windows xp edition on my laptop.
Solved! Go to Solution.

well, seems you are correct in your assumption. the file with media manager is supposed to be 216.594 MB and i downloaded 211MB. The file without media was supposed to download 81MB and only downloaded 14.4!! I am using IE 7 and windows xp w/ sp2. why do you suppose it isn't downloading everything? it will say 'download complete' and offer the 'run' box...that is when it says the error, when I click on run. I acts like it is going to install for just a minute and then the error pops up.
thank you for trying to help me!

Not sure why. Can you try using Firefox, or downloading it onto another computer, then transferring it over to the computer you want to install it on?
Also just to be sure, you're not running low on disk space are you? Try running a disk cleanup to delete any temp files, then reboot. Try downloading the application again.

If you're running Windows try going to Start | Run and type in (w/o quotes) "%temp%".
That should open the temp directory where the software may be trying to install to. If the folder isn't empty delete it's contents and try again.

YOU ARE AWESOME!!! It downloaded in 13 minutes and installed perfectly with firefox on my other computer. I think i will just switch computers (it is newer, just a little more bulky)...It is working FINE...desktop 4.7 w/out media manager (which i don't need anyway). I may still try to figure out what went wrong w/ this computer.
thank you so much!!!!!
