BB DM 4.5 now available

JSanders 06-21-2008 01:40 PM

woohoo, thank you for the heads up!

zerog46 06-21-2008 01:46 PM

Have you used it prior to the public release, is it stable...

JSanders 06-21-2008 01:52 PM

Yes it is pretty nice, some of the same problems that 4.3 DM had with some instability here and there, but this has been ok on my laptop.

John Clark 06-21-2008 02:04 PM

Looks like bundle 16 and that was a good build of DM. Bundle 15 has been floating around and it had a few issues.

Go for this one! (y)

Device Manager 4.5 MSI is also that included in the DM 4.5 download bundle?

Gaak. I've spent hours on this new version... First, Roxio wouldn't uninstall or reinstall properly - and it takes SO long to watch it fail each time. I finally had to manually remove the detritus that uninstall left behind, run Windows Installer Cleanup utility, scour the registry manually to remove Roxio stuff, and manually delete the sub directories left behind. Add in a few more reboots and then finally a successful reinstall.

Now - with the new DM in place, I'm finding that the first thing it always wants to do is "Check for device application updates. Please wait...". This seems to take several minutes each time - I can't imagine what it's doing... It even offers a tantalizing "Cancel" button - but this, like everything else, appears disabled right now, so my choice is to wait and watch with fingers crossed, or kill it with Task Mangler and try again.


Never had problems like this with any prior releases, including the 4.6 and 4.5 betas...

Isnt the new DM supposed to be compatible with itunes? ...

John Clark 06-21-2008 03:20 PM

That's coming in a separate download and will be in DM 4.6.

Oh, ok--Thanks for the heads up!

Dawg 06-21-2008 05:29 PM

its not available on the 4.6 I have. It makes me accept the download but I cant download it yet because its not released. but 4.6 has been pretty stable

John Clark 06-21-2008 05:33 PM

DM 4.6 is little more than 4.5 with the addition of that feature. it's not available yet, though.

Wow! This has been a remarkable Saturday! (y)

I just downloaded the DTM 4.5 English version...and suddenly my desktop shortcut icon is gone!!! I even tried to launch DTM via my programs list...and no luck.

What is the problem?

If I can't have a desktop shortcut...I'll go back to 4.3.:-(

NickfromIL 06-21-2008 11:40 PM

which package did you download. The first time all I downloaded was the BlackBerry Device Manager, and had the same issue. Went and downloaded Desktop Manager English Version and now all is well.

John Clark 06-21-2008 11:41 PM

There are many versions there for download (including ala carte Device Manager.) Pay close attention to what you are downloading. :-)

So...what is your suggestion for the best download, Mr. Clark? One that would return to me my shortcut would be wonderful...

John Clark 06-21-2008 11:45 PM

Desktop Manager English and up to you whether or not you want the Media Manager.
