desktop manager for windows XP

I am trying to download the blackberry desktop manager onto my PC which has Windows XP running. When I try to download it it tells me that my operating system won't allow it. Is there an older version that will work with XP? And if so where can I find it?

Re: desktop manager for windows XP

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

These are the system requirements:

Unless you are way out of date on XP, you should be able to use the 6.x version.

 

Otherwise, you can obtain older versions here:

 

Good luck!
