Default desktop manager

Please Login to Remove!

ive been having trouble trying to get my desktop manager to install... well i just got my blackberry not to long ago off ebay... its a 8700 and first i tried to install the 4.5 dm and i couldnt get it to recognize my blackberry under detected devices... my brother told me to try 4.2 because its what he was using so i uninstalled 4.5 and i try to go through deleting everything that was listed in the how to performed a clean uninstall thread but its kinda hard to figure it out cause i have vista... anyways im pretty sure i got all the files deleted and when i try to install the 4.2 dm it says that it has been interrupted... ive tried searching the forum and my computer for more install files for 3 days but had no success... if anyone else that has vista could help me out that would be great...

I have heard you may need to right click on the DM install file and select install as Administrator. I had no problem with 4.2 or 4.5 on my wife's Vista laptop so that's the extent of my advise.

If 4.5 worked before I would try that again...then work on why it's not seeing your BB.

I would try a complete remove and reinstall of the DM and 4.5. You have to do the install with an account that has local administrator rights. I'm not sure about Vista but in XP there are several locations you can look for installs from RIM.

c:\program files\Research In Motion
c:\program files\Common Files\Research In Motion
c:\documents and settings\username\application data (this is hidden by default)
c:\documents and settings\username\Blackberry Desktop

If you see any of the above folders you can just delete them.

You'll also need to delete the registry key's too. Click on Start, Run, and type in "regedit" and hit enter.

Look under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\RESEARCH IN MOTION. Delete that folder and also HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RESEARCH IN MOTION, delete that folder too.

Reboot the machine and rerun the install of Desktop Manager. Good Luck

Many folks here are usin 4.5 DM with no issues. I for one have not found bug one. Now if he is referring to an OS upgrade on the phone that's a different story. 4.5 has had some issues but most are fixed with the latest offerings.

I do it without any problem. I update First to OS 4.2 and then to OS 4.5.

No problem at all. I also have DM 4.3. I dont need anything to fancy because the 8700 it is not the newest phone, so why DM 4.5???. Try this way.

Welcome BBFROUMS!!!!!!!!!!
