Remove Desktop Manager (DM) 4.3 and install Desktop Manager v4.2, SP 2. See if that helps.

- remove DM 4.3
- load DM 4.2
- reinstall the Handheld OS for the 8830
- Remove vendor.xml (again)
- Restart Desktop Manager

Default Update Should Prompt

I guess I'm not clear as to why you'd have to start the application loader. If you installed both the most recent version of Desktop Manager and the OS to your PC, when you start Desktop Manager you should be prompted to update your OS, and the update should be seamless. When I installed v4.2.2.196 on my 8830 I was never prompted to start the Desktop Manager. The update was automatic.
