Default New Blackberry Desktop software replaces Roxio

Please Login to Remove!

I just downloaded and installed the new Blackberry Desktop Manager software (version 4.2 Service Pack 2).

There are no questions or options during the installation.

The new Blackberry software completely replaces my full version of Easy Media Creator 9 with the Blackberry Roxio Manager software instead.

I obviously do not want this. I want to keep my full version of Easy Media Creator 9, which does much more than the "light" Blackberry version, and I want to still be able to transfer files to my Blackberry 8800.

Help!

Any ideas... anyone?

Thanks!

Two thoughts:

1- Simply reinstall EMC v9 and see if it resides peacefully with 4.2.2 that you've already installed.
2- I believe there is an optional download for 4.2.2 that does not include the media manager. You might try uninstalling the version you've got, installing the alternate one, and then reinstalling your full version of EMC v9. But doing this may result in you not having the BB Media Manager on your device.

The the BBDesktop Roxio install uninstall your EMC 9 install or simply take over registered file types that EMC 9 handled? If the latter then you can set your registered file types back (under Windows Explorer --> Folder Options --> File Types.)

Reinstalling EMC 9 will of course take those permissions back. Uninstalling BBDestop 4.2 should set them back as well but there is no guarantee (depends on the robustness of the application install and whether the uninstall feature kept record of the changed registry keys that need to be reverted.)

And yes, there is the option to download the BBDesktop without the Media Manager.

In case this helps someone else.

V4.3 of the Desktop Manager software has the option of NOT installing media manager. I too have EMC 9, and spent a lot of time at the roxio board trying to get it to work. In some cases, Roxio EMC 9 doesn't like any other flavors of its products installed. Their board is full of horror stories some of us faced.

Knowing this, I searched here FIRST. Your post alerted me to watch out for DM trying to install media manager. As I said, v4.3 gave me the option. I simply didn't install typical, but used custom and didn't install MM. I don't know if earlier versions of DM allow this.

When starting MM via DM, it found the existing EMC 9 version just fine.
