Default BlackBerry Software and Windows x64

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings ladies and gents,

A real quick question since I have not been sucessful in locating a Knowledge Base article on bb.com. When it comes to using the BlackBerry Desktop software with Windows Xp 64-bit, do I have to do anything special to get it to install the Blackberry on the USB?

I remember back when I was using just Windows Xp, it automatically installs the driver(s) needed for the Desktop Software to recognize it.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have the same problem....
I want to install blackberry maps, but can't do that without a USB connection.

I guess I'll have to do this on my laptop which is 32bit.

From what I've read, there is no 64bit support from RIM. The only other thread I pulled up here was a guy that ran a VMware virtual PC on the same computer....and installed windows XP 32bit on that virtual PC to get access to his BB. That's a little too much for me, running windows xp 32bit inside a windows XP 64bit OS using VMware. I'll just install blackberry maps from a 32bit PC....somewhere.

Not a good idea to post your phone number on the Internet. I suggest you delete your phone number.

Seriously? I just installed BB Desktop manager 4.2...and it didn't add the driver. I can see all the .inf files there with the package...but damn if the add hardware wizard doesn't like any of them.

Under device manager, you have your BB as recongized? I just have "Blackberry Device" with the typical yellow quesiton mark in device manager.
