Default Trouble installing fltplan.com for Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I cannot for the life of me install the fltplan.com FBO and Airport Directory on my Curve. It always saves the files to "My Pictures" and therefore cannot link to the application properly.

Other Pilots/Blackberry Fiends please help...

Hello

what method are you using to install this application?

Applications do not go on the sd card, that is for media only.

Default OK - That's a start!

That makes perfect sense now that you say it...Can you do me a favor and tell me some other way to load it to my Curve?

Finally some progress...

Ok. Was it a zip file you downloaded? If so you either need to double click it or right click on it to extract the .alx file.

Now plug your BB into the pc via usb, Open desktop manager (this is on the CD that came with your BB ) click on application loader, select add. Now find and click on the alx file you extracted. This puts the alx file into the loader, click next (then next again I think) then select finish when prompted. The application should now be on your device.

If it was a jad or jar file these are over the air applications where you usually download them via the BB by clicking on the link from your browser. There is a way to put these jad and jar files onto your device and install them from there but I am not familiar with this process so maybe someone else can help with that if it is these files that you have on your BB.

Hope that helps.

Default I downloaded a .zip file

I downloaded a .zip file, extracted it and placed the folder on the SD Card. Then I went to a link on my browser, downloaded a .jar file and then started haing problems....

Does a SD card care if internet files are labeled as "firefox" of "explorer"?

Default Where did you get a zip file

I was just on flightplanner.com and could not find anything to download to use on the blackberry, where did you find it?
I can open fltplanner.com in my web browser and use it but no stand alone app or short cut.
I have a Verizon 8330 Curve if that makes a difference.

I have been looking around for you and found these instructions posted by John Clark.
