Desktop manager
 
Is this something I should be able to install on my personal PC? it ask for a password about half way through the install. I dont have one.

Thanks

I downloaded mine from blackberry.com for free. I bought my phone used and it did not come with the disk. The only password I used is the same password to unlock my phone from the home screen.

This is the password im looking at. Where do I find it?

xbrandonx 03-25-2008 08:41 PM

No, that is very different from what I was dealing with.

Its looking for the password for the User "Jackson" on that windows PC. Do you use a password to log into that machine?

Yes, you're downloading the wrong thing.
You're trying to install BlackBerry Manager... which is a management tool for BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

BlackBerry Manager is NOT the same as BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

You need to download and install BlackBerry Desktop Manager. (Sometimes referred to as BlackBerry Desktop Software)

I recommend Microsoft Outlook for most users.
If you have Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.) on your computer, you probably have Outlook installed as well.

duramaxdavid 03-27-2008 06:25 AM

You know I installed office but didnt see outlook

JSanders 03-27-2008 06:39 AM

If you installed Office, then Outlook should be there, or do it again and make sure Outlook is a choice in the install.

What version do you have of Office?

duramaxdavid 03-27-2008 02:15 PM

office plus 07

GotGadgets 03-27-2008 07:40 PM

If its not already installed on your computer, drop in the install cd and it should pop up asking you if you want to Repair, Add Features, Uninstall... etc. Choose the Add Features button (wording might be slightly different) the you will probably find that Outlook has a red X on it. Click that and choose Run from my computer. That should do the trick.

duramaxdavid 03-27-2008 09:08 PM

I got it working. I missed it on the first go around. I got it running and data has been synced

hey penguin3107-
i am trying to download the software for blackberry desktop manager and referred to the link you provided above. (thanks by the way)
however, i am pretty sure i should choose version 4.2.2 but how do i know if i get the one with service pack 1? or 2? or the version without service pack?

Sith_Apprentice 04-13-2008 11:27 PM

4.2. service pack 2 is definately the best one. 4.2 is the one without the service pack, and 4.2 sp 1 is also listed there.
