Default Downloading OS, not working

Please Login to Remove!

Well I know what I mean, I only ever seem to post when I can't get something to work!!

I've got a 8100 which did have OS 4.2 Desktop manager and the equivalent hand held software, whatever that was.

I decided I should upgrade and downloaded 4.5 and 2.7.1 for the handheld to my PC, saved and installed.

I now have the new version of Desktop manager but when I try and sync with the BB it goes through the motions but says theres no applications to apply. I use Lotus organiser and theres no changes to it.

Please someone tell me what I need to do, or haven't done.

I have no idea what a 2.7.1 is, but you need to download the 8100 Handheld OS from here -> http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

Follow the instructions EXACTLY and it will work.
