the above solution did not work for me :(
but i figured out a way to FIX IT!
NO Software Needed!
Its so Easy A CaveMan Could do it!
i have a blackberry 8830 Wold Edition
& im using Blackberry Desktop Mangager 184.108.40.206
& im using Sprint as my service provider
ok so i was having the same problem...
when i first installed the desktop manager it was working fine...
then i had to delete all the contacts from my phone & replace them
with all my contacts in outlook. so i called techsupport to help me
out. so they walked me through clearing all the contacts from my phone
without wiping out the whole phone of all the other settings.
then when we tried to import all my contacts from outlook a message came up
asking if i wanted to accept or reject changes.
i then clicked on the button to view the changes & i didnt like what i saw so i clicked on reject. Next thing you know the program froze!
so i tried closing the program & restarting it... & then came the famous 1904 error!
got like 3 of them.
i was on the phone with tech support for like 2 days.. & the could not figure out what the problem was.. we removed the software .. re installed it .. restarted .. but none of that worked.. i was still getting the errors...
then i tried the solution above
"Aaron Stebner's WebLog : Solving setup errors by using the SubInACL tool to repair file and registry permissions"
but that did not work either :(
i was about to uninstall the software again & try to reinstall it but then i said let me try to sync one more time...
so i turned on Blackberry Desktop Manager
& got the same 1904 error (like 3 diffrent ones)
i clicked on ignore or ok for all of them & then like before the blackberry managaer window would grey out.. & i could not click on anything..
so what did i do next? what else can we possibly try at this point?
I removed the phone from the usb cable...waited like 10 seconds & an error came up saying that the phone was disconnected...so i connected the phone to the usb cable again & guess what! everything started working again!
there is one more thing that i figured out on my own...
sometimes the software will freeze if you have a
password set on your phone & it locks up before you are done syncing...
& it will not give any errors or anything. it will just freeze!
DO NOT disconnect the phone from the usb cable if this happens...
all you have to do is press on the ball on your blackberry ...
the phone will say "handheld is locked"
Unlock your handheld & you will notice that the Destop Manager will continue to sync!
I hope this helps all of you out there with the same problem.
