Default Re: Latest OS 9900 v7.1.0.2218 / (jAllLang)

Jim, this was very helpful and was able to install the software. earlier I could not find the 2nd vendor file but this was precise and took me to the right cave.

first install is causing some issues where I receive the call and no voice unless i switch to speakerfone. re-installing

With Windows 7, in almost every case there are two vendor.xml files which need to be deleted. I say "almost" as there was one update about 2 months ago which did not have the second vendor.xml file. Like you I use Desktop Manager to load a new os. Can't remember ever going directly to Loader.exe.

The usual location for the vendor.xml file is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

The second location for the vendor.xml file in Windows 7 is usually:
C:\Users\[myUserName]\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\Blackberry\Loader XML

If all else fails, search for the second vendor.xml file. However, I have always found it in Roaming subdirectory noted above.
