x(PIN#).xml File Location in Win 7?
OK. I used to use DM v.4.7 on Windows XP here at work and sometimes the app loader in DM would hang on to an old list of apps installed on the BB so if I manually deleted an app on the BB itself, it would still be in the list on DM. I used to delete the (xpin#.xml) file in Windows XP under Docs and Settings/Users/App Data/Research In Motion/ if I can remember off the top of my head. That would clear the app list in DM and create a new one the next time I connected it to the PC. We're now running Windows 7 here at work and DM v.4.7 did install and does work fine but Windows 7's folder structures have changed and I can't find this file for nothing to get rid of it. All the other files that one would delete are in place (like the vendor.xml file is still under Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\App Loader) but the XML file that DM looks at to make that app list in DM is somewhere else now or I can't get to it.

On a side note, I didn't want to use DM 6 yet as a) I'm still using an old BB device (8330) and b) I've read about numerous issues RE: v6 so I thought I'd wait it out a little longer.

Never mind...I found it myself by doing extensive searching but for those who may want to know for future reference:

C:\Users\username\App Data\Roaming\Research In Motion\Blackberry\Loader History

*Windows 7 File Location*
