I am trying to push an application (Google maps) from a BES4.1 server. I have created the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\ share and extracted the files into the Application folder. Folder looks like,
"Directory of C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Applications\Google Maps
Running loader.exe /index created all the .xml and .pkg files in the above folders. But when I try to create the software configuration in the Blackberry manager I cant see anything. When i click the + beside "Software Configuration" there is nothing listed at all.
Yes, share level everybody has read access, NTFS permissions are full control for the BES service account, read&list for everyone and authenticated users. Setting every account to full control makes no difference either.
Edit - While I thought it was the same issue, I can get Google Maps going just fine. Just so you know when I indexed mine it only put the 2 files in the Google Maps folder and not the other 3 sub folders.

BES was decommissioned. Currently using iPhones with Lotus Notes Traveler 9.0.
I was having the same issue. A guy from T-Support solved my issue.
Create a DIR called Google Maps (or whatever you want to call it) within C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Applications\
Take your source files.zip and extract the whole thing into this new DIR. You should end up with the following:
Folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Applications\Google Maps
Within this folder you should see 3 folders; 1 file in each folder:
And 1 file in the main DIR:
When you do the indexing, you end up with 2 new files in the main DIR:
So now in the main Google Maps folder, you have 3 DIRs(each have 1 .cod file) and 3 files (.alx, .xml, .pkg)
Now, if you have all your sharing set up correctly, you will now see the application within the Software Configuration screen in the Manager.
The problem is that within the .alx file, DIRs are defined and if you don't have matching DIR structure within your setup, it won't work. Open the .alx in wordpad to see the DIR structure expected. I guess you could edit the .alx to suit your specific needs, I chose not to.
