Installed 4.5 SW, but how do I actually upgrade with Desktop Manager?

There is no option anywhere to select 4.5. The desktop manager still shows 4.2.

What is the procedure to physically install 4.5?

thanks.

I was running into the same problem. I did a reboot and it seemed to work after that.

did you delete the vendor.xlm file?

you can find it in C:/program files/common files/reseach in motion/apploader/ it will be there, delete that file, restart your desktop manager and it will prompt you to upgrade your OS

trust me... if you have installed 4.5 to your PC and its not prompting you to upgrade your OS when you start DM (Desktop manager) then thats the issue... along with every OS upgrade you must delete that file...

Appreciate the assistance. Looks like it will be an hour for the upgrade to complete.

Actually you do not need to delete vendor.xml for EVERY OS upgrade; only when you are trying to upgrade to an OS which was released by a carrier other than the original (branded) one.

But I delete it anyway

you'd better be very patient for the initial device phase as it took 20 mins to finish the last part. the screen will show sand timer for a very long time.Don't do anything during this time, just wait....
