Is it possible to charge a 7100t (or 7290 for that matter) from a laptop/desktop without desktopmanager being installed? If so, how?

It seems to charge on a Mac without anything else installed - but I assume you were interested in a Windows machine! I don't believe you need to install the desktop manager - but you do need the BB USB drivers to be installed.

Yep. The BB USB drivers are definately required.
