Question Having trouble reaching a direct download link to DesktopSoftware4.3 or 5 (4.3 prefer

Please Login to Remove!

I'm having trouble reaching a direct download link to DesktopSoftware 4.3 or 5 (would rather have 4.3- am using W2K). Doesn't matter if I click on a link that should be taking me to a page where I can download 4.3, or a link that should be taking me to a page where I can download 5.0, it keeps taking me to the same page with a drop down, and none of the selections in the drop down seem to get me to where I want to go - I click DesktopSoftware for PC and it just keeps throwing V6 in my face- I Don't WANT V6! I want 4.3 or at most, v5!
Please help! Any assistance you could offer (like a DIRECT Download link to an earlier version (4.3 or 5) of the DesktopSoftware or the USB drivers for W2K for the 7520) would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!

I even tried the link Rambo47 provided in his post(reply) last month, and it still took me to the same place with that dropdown....all roads lead to that page that stops me in my tracks....PLEASE HELP!! Thank you! Any assistance you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Ouch! The last thing I want to do is seem ungrateful, but 231MB!?
I have a VERY SLOW dialup connection, and 30MB would take ~DAYS, to say nothing of 230MB!! Do you have something way more stripped down, like just basic USB drivers to get W2K to recognize the blackberry, & Maybe just the barest bone essentials for Outlook sync... I'm sorry, but my download manager is estimating about 60 hours to download something that big...I don't know if I can pull it off...never even attempted such a task before- I average ~1K a second- maybe 1.5K/sec if I'm lucky...

It is a big file. Even if JSanders zipped it, it is still going to a big file.

Thanks guys! That's way better- way more doable! Sorry to be such a pain...
I just wish that site would support Resume!!...it keeps failing on me, and when it does that I can't get anywhere if it's not gonna support resume...but I'll try again anyway, but I'm not getting my hopes up... maybe I can get my friend to download it for me & burn it
onto a CD - he has a faster connection... Hope he can... Anyway, thanks again!!
