Default Downloading applications

Please Login to Remove!

I'm having a problem trying to download applications to my BB. The application is in a zip file, so I am using Winzip to open it up. Once it is open I am using the desktop program to sinc the file to the BB. The application loader can find the file (which I believe always has a .AXL suffix) but when I hit "Add" I get this error message : "No additional applications designed for your handheld were found." What am I doing wrong?

Don't hit ADD again after finding the .ALX file. You have already selected the file to add, and by hitting ADD again the loader looks for another application and can't find one. Just hit next and it should load properly.

What software are you loading? Has other software loaded correctly?

I tried downloading again using another zip file. After I hit next, the application loader looks for the file but can't find it. Do I need to unzip the file to a special location so it can find it?

I unzip downloads to my desktop. Then open Application Loader, click ADD, then brouse until you find the folder you are looking for. Highlight the .axl file, click OPEN, then you should be able to click on next and get the file to load.

Default Loading applications

OK, I unzipped a chicken game. I put the file named "chicken.ali" into my desktop folder. When I click NEXt on the application loader it doesn't find anything, so I hit ADD. At that point I am able to browse to the Desktop folder and find the file there. It is "Chicken.ali". I click on the file and then hit OPEN. The Application Loader tells me that he can't find any files to load.

What am I doing wrong?

Ken,

Are you putting all of the unzipped files for this game into the same folder? When you click Application Loader, ADD, you should be looking for a file ending in .alx. Highlight that file, Open, then hit Next and it should load properly. It sounds like you might be highlighting a folder rather than the .alx file within the folder.

On your Blackberry, go to Options, Applications, scroll down to the bile you want to delete, click Trackbutton then Delete and it should be removed.

Aren't .ALI files for older (C++) BlackBerrys? I believe Java BlackBerrys (4 digit models) require .ALX and .COD.

I'm putting both files ( AXL and COD) into the desktop directory and the application reader still isn't reading it. Actually the .AXL file shows up but the .COD file doesn't unless I look at all the files in the directory. I'm getting an error message which says " No additional applications designed for your handheld were found." These are blackberry programs, so they should be OK.

You cant just load it ... unforutantly i found out that you have to have the internet service from your provider activated in order for it to appear.

If i am wrong .. i am sorry but everyone i asked said the same thing .
