I haven't seen this particular problem, but I do know that I had problems if I didn't run the setup as Administrator.

Here's some Vista tips:
  1. Use Desktop Manager 4.2 SP1. SP2 is available but includes Roxio Media Manager and is HUGE! If you feel you must have the latest and greatest, use a Custom install and do NOT install Media Manager. I haven't tried it under Vista, but looked at it under XP, and it's very invasive and overkill to just copy some files to an SD card! (yea, I know it does more than that)

  2. The package you download is a self extracting Zip file. Use a utility like WinZip to extract the package to a permanent directory. The reason is that you should be able to modify the installation at a later time, but if you just run the package you download, the files needed to modify the installation are extracted to your %TEMP% directory, and likely to be gone by the time you want to make a change. Extract the file to something like C:\Downloads\BBDesktop42SPx. If you do this, run BlackBerrySetup.exe to install.

  3. This is the most important tip for Vista! When you run the installer (either the file you download or BlackBerrySetup.exe), RIGHT CLICK on the file and select Run as Administrator.
