Desktop Manager for Playbook

Hi,

I currently have a Blackberry Storm II with version 5.0 Desktop Manager.

Having just purchased a Playbook, I installed the default software (I assume Version 6) but there is no sign of it on my system.

Does already having version 5 mean that version 6 will not install properly?

IIRC you need 6.1

Re: Desktop Manager for Playbook

If I download version 6.0 what about my Storm II, I understand that this will only work for version 5.0?

Re: Desktop Manager for Playbook

You need Desktop Software 6.1, and it will work for both the Playbook and the Storm.

Re: Desktop Manager for Playbook

I am confusing the Storm II operating system (Version 5.0) with the desktop version. I have installed the desktop version 6.01 and all is working fine now. Thank you both Smiley Happy
