Hello newbie 9900
Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums
The problem may be because of any Vendor .Xml files ,If you are having problem I prefer start it from beginning, try it this way But before that Uninstall any OS packs from your PC :
1.Locate your Carrier and Download the OS you desire from here and Install it in your PC or Laptop Carriers
2. Download and install the latest BlackBerry desktop software from here BlackBerry desktop software
3.Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, there may be one or two vendor.xml ( On your Pc change your folders option to show hidden files/folders ) :
5. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. (For 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader) double click Loader.exe.
Upgrade will continue then After Installation of New OS restore your backup from BlackBerry desktop
