I've done this and still nothing, I don't get the "vendor.xml" part, I can't ever find it.

Are you running a 64bit version of windows? If so it will be in the same place it mentions, with one difference: Program Files (x86)

Yes, but is it 32bit windows or 64bit windows? If the latter, then the place in the instructions it tells you to look, needs to be changed to what I said above.

So if I have a 64 bit, just follow the exact instruction? It's weird cuz I installed the latest OS when I used to have the 9700 with no problem, now it's a problem with this one.

Click on the Start icon in the lower left hand corner of Windows 7, then select Computer
Select the C (Local) drive and navigate your way down.

Do you have much PC experience?

If you're serious about asking this question, then you should not be upgrading the OS on your BlackBerry.

Yeah, OK.
So you were about 8 years old when you were looking for porn sites a few years ago?

C:\ is your hard drive, it may not be named C.
You access it from the "my computer" icon.
Once you double click the hard drive icon, you are presented with files. one of which is called program files. [or program files (x86)]
Double click program files (or if the (x86) one is there, click that instead).
Then continue with the same file name path as described in the installation thread.
