As referenced in a previous post in this thread, use the included CD
I had Desktop V4.2 with the "Switch Device" feature which I used and transferred exactly "0" applications from my 8700 C even though the box to do so was checked. Not good.
I reinstalled the Desktop V4.2 from the CD (did not uninstall the existing) and it appeared to transfer over every third party application I had installed including Opera Mini, Gmail, Google Maps, Jive Talk, Mino, Lex Spell, Berry 411, etc.
So far I can confirm that Gmail, Google Maps, Lex Spell, Berry 411 all work. I may have a provisioning issue with BB corrector, Jive Talk and some others. They load, just do not connect correctly, which tells me it is likely a setting rather than an incompatible version.
Edit: BB Corrector now works with APN settings entered correctly, still working on Jive Talk.
All I can figure is my version of 4.2 desktop needed to be updated for the switch device feature to work.
