There are two programs you must install. First, you must install Desktop Manager version 4.1. Then, when you are done with that, you must install the HK CSL 4.1 Handheld OS Software for your particular model, i.e. 7290 series, 7100 series, etc. onto your computer too. They are both available at blackberry.com. Once you have installed the handheld software, then delete the vendor.xml file again as it will reinstall whenever you load new handheld software. Then plug in and run desktop manager and you should be good to go.
