With DM 4.6.0.14, the "Update" alternative is in the check boxes section of the install. Are you talking about an even newer version of the DM?

Apparently there is a new version of Desktop Manager, 4.7. I am going to try this. This issue was not in the version of 4.6 that I had.

My instructions are really for DM 4.7 anyway. 4.7 will cause this problem if you install the auto update feature.

Came across a potential stumbling block. When attempting to 'modify' the automatic updates setting, the installer choked when it was looking for the original "msi" file. I think it was because I've cleaned out the machine using a Cleaner type program that gets rid of unused and temp type files since the install of 4.6DM. So- just a heads up, in case you come across the same thing.

Thumbs up You are the one..!!

Thank a lot John Clark.

I got it on an abandoned phone for a long time.
First I failed by trying without the battery, then I got it correct.

I think the problem with "mmcpher" is that he hasn't used the custom installation.

Great work John, you are the one..!!

That may have been it, but it somehow updated despite my mishandling the process, and now has been operating at a much higher level, with greatly improved battery life. Next time I will try it the right way.

If you don't want to go through this whole process can't you just delete all vendor.xml files and then disable your network connection to get the update to work?

Just do a search of your computer for vendor.xml and make sure that you are searching hidden files and folders.

JC,

Have you found any other reasons this happens? I have vista. I did not find another vendor.xml file in C:\Users\"Username"\appdata\local\virtualstore\pro gramfiles (x86),RIM\Blackberry.

I have searched my PC evern hidden files and folders. No luck. Am using an 8100 with the lastest OS. But cant seem to get anywhere with desktop manager. Loader.exe works and recognizes fine.

Default Help Error Codes and Cant Reload

Okay oh you great smart ones-

Started with a Error code of 525 (i think) tried the reload of OS. Went to a 507 error code, now did all the steps I can find on this page and am at a 547 error code. I would love to wipe the whole BB 8820 but have all this corporate software that prevents it, and I am runnning vista which for come reason is precluding the JL Commander from working... Send me a file that will completely devistate this BB so I can reload from real scratch.

Im Going to bed... Been messing with this thing for 8 hours... I am Done.
