It is not designed for win 8..i find it surprising..will you be another person on here trying to get rid of it like the person who forced BB10 on his playbook

I actually posted this thread in recognition that it can be done... I even took the time to post on someone else's thread....who was having trouble.....as have many others.
Perhaps the comment "finally"...was a tad unfair....but then...a little info, useful info from BB.....would have helped.
Bottom line, it works fine on WIN 8.
For those having probs....I recommend after loading the latest Desktop software (delete older versions) and rebooting...connect the PB....open BB Desktop...if it won't connect....check "system" "devices" and "network adaptors" in "control panel"...if you have an error on the PB....delete it...rescan for new software or reboot.
I love this little thing....and have used BB phones for years....I am far from a naysayer. That's why I took the time to post on these couple threads. Real time solution...from a real user.....filling in for non existent relevant direction from BB....

I see what you mean...with a sober second look.
Certainly you can take it how you like...but the second post on this thread should have cleared it up.....obviously not.
If you were running WIN 8 on a Playbook...why would you even need BB Desktop manager..
A few here have had trouble connecting to BB Desktop Manager loaded on a WINDOWS 8 machine (myself only after the latest update). I posted on those particular threads dealing with this issue also.........this was a short sum-up...nothing more.
This thread was was aimed at folks who likely knew what I was alluding to.....not those trying to pick fly sh_t out of pepper..
In closing...anyone know how to load WINDOWS 8 on a PB ?

I followed these instructions and for a moment it looked like it was going to work but in teh end it didn't, so I still can't communicate between my PC and PB. It seems to me that the problem is with the drivers. Hopefully BB10 for PlayBook is not far away and will include a fix for this.
