Default Blackberry Desktop Redirection and Laptops

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,
We have a two Directors, each using a Nextel Blackberry 7100i. We don't have a BES, so we are looking at using the Blackberry Desktop Redirection software. Here's the problem: both of these Directors have laptops, so it is not feasible to place the redirector software on the laptops since the laptops will not always be connected to the network.
As a solution, I have set up a separate PC with VMware installed. My plan was to configure Outlook for one director on the host profile and then set up Outlook for the other director on the virtual profile. However, I cannot get the virtual profile to see the USB ports properly and therefore I cannot set up the redirector.

Any thoughts on other approaches to this problem?

Obviously not the cheapest solution - but perhaps you could check out a hosted BES? That way you wouldn't have to have a PC on at all to redirect anything...
