Navigate the the following location in windows explorer:

I'm getting stuck at this step. In don't have a Shared folder in my Research in Motion folder -- ??? All I have in my RIM folder is AppLoader, BBBI Drivers, Modem Drivers, RIMDeviceManager, and USB Drivers. It's a VZW 8830.
I have this exact same problem. I have an 8130 that I got from Verizon 3 days ago. Initially, I went straight to RIM and downloaded the latest software. I got and installed a file called "Desktop Software v4.3 (English).exe". It was 215MB.
With that installed, I had no Loader Files folder. I searched my whole hard drive for blackberry.alx and *.cod and found none.
I followed the additional instructions in this thread, and followed the links which eventually took me to VZW's website and I downloaded the latest software from there. There were only 3 choices: Desktop Software v4.3 (updated 11/20/07), Desktop Software v4.3 (updated 11/13/07), and the VZAccess Manager software.
I downloaded the Desktop Software v4.3 (updated 11/20/07). That gave me a file named "Desktop Software v4.3 (Multilanguage).exe". It is 340MB. I installed it over the top of what I already had. Still no "Loader Files" folder or any .COD files.
What am I doing wrong?
