You then go to Desktop Manager and run Application Loader and.......nothing happens. What? You never had installed to your PC. So now, you have no OS installed on the PC for loading to the BB. I hope this makes sense. HEre's what to do.

1. Make sure the latest version of Desktop Manager is installed.
2. Delete ALL other OS's from the PC under Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs
3. Download and install whichever OS you are wanting to downgrade the BB to.
4. Delete the vendor.xml file
5. Plug in BB, Run DM/App Loader.

The Apploader will sense that a "downgrade" is sensed.
I have tried this and I cannot find the .94 to uninstall. Listed in my control panel I ony have .73 and the desktop manager, v 4.2.2 and thats it. I do not have an apploader option available in program files nor a vendor.xml file. This is where my problem is stemming, that I do not have these options. What can I do? What do I need to wipe to be able to get the apploader installed?

This is driving me insane.
