Exclamation Need help with 4.1 update :( on 7290...

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,
Hope this is an ok place to post...Im new so forgive me haha. Anyway, So, Im giving BB a second chance, my first few I think I just got "lemons" both 7100's...So I picked up a 7290 (T-Mobile)...Im pretty versed in BB by now, but am having trouble updating my 7290 to 4.1 software...Im using a Macbook, and have Pocketmac installed, which works fine for installing software, theres little corners I have to cut if I download .exe files, so Im using CrossOver for Mac, and then pulling the .als files etc so I can install them on my 7290...So, I downloaded the 4.1 software upgrade, and Crossover is just not installing it onto my comp like normal, Im not sure why, but its getting annoying, I tried looking in the "contents" of the .exe file but to no avail. I can think of 2 solutions, one, if someone has the 4.1 upgrade file already "extracted" from the .exe, that they can e-mail so I can install it via Pocketmac, that would work best Im guessing, or, two, someone has a good suggestion I just havent figured out! (Im not 100%, but Im guessing I can do this upgrade install from my 7290 itself?)
Thanks in advance for any help!!

OK - this is the THIRD identical post.
One in Mac users forum (the right place) and two more.
