Default I need to be pointed in the right direction

Please Login to Remove!

So I need the software for the 8830 world edition that allows me to change the settings and everything on it, or any relevant software, I already tried downloading some softwares but I have no idea how to work it or even what it does.
Please, someone help me out!

Oh and if it matters I'm using a Telus 8830 world edition blackberry with a vista OS.

Nothing, I just need the programs that come on the CD for the blackberry 8830.
I bought my unit from ebay and didn't get any software cd's

Yes, you can download whichever version you would like. 4.7 is the most resent.

I downloaded and everything but when installing it said "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed"

Is this a major defect or nothing to worry about?
My blackberry is plugged in btw

After I downloaded the file from Blackberry.com I double clicked the folder and it extracted, but it gave me the option to modify the current version I had installed ( I probably tried with the same program previously ) so I did and thats when the pop up came up telling me that

e:\ I know a manual way if anyone is able to help me via teamviewer
