Windows 7 64bit driver

Amazing, I can not connect my Z10 to my PC. 

Windows find "RIM Network Device" but can't find a driver for it !!!



The software on the Z10 called "Device Manager" is not working. 

To solve it I installed Blackberry Link. 

But this is no good for development.

I am using Eclipse Plugin to transfer Android apps to Blackberry, but when I use "Auto Detect" to connect to the device, it never finds it. Please Help.


Where can I find a proper "USB driver" for Windows7-64 ?

How to get a working version of "Device Manager"?



I need a solution ASAP !!


Thanks in advance

Re: Windows 7 64bit driver

Device manager does not (and will not) support OS10 devices. Link is used for OS10.


It sounds like your problem is with Eclipse, not the Z10.


I use Link under Windows 7 64-bit just fine. The internal flash and SD flash card also appear as mounted devices.


There are other ways to side-load android apps. Some quick searches should find them for you.
