To the OP, a question.

What's the file extension of the theme you are trying to install?

.JAD files must be installed OTA (over the air) by going to the link from your BlackBerry browser.

For themes that might have been in a ZIP file, you need to unzip the file on your computer. Then in BlackBerry Desktop Manager on your computer, go to the Application Loader, click Start under Add/Remove Applications. Then click Browse and navigate to the folder on your computer into which you extracted the files from the ZIP file. You are looking for the .ALX file but the corresponding .COD must also be in the same file (which shouldn't be a problem if you extracted all the files from the ZIP).
