Default Any way to get OS 4.0 besides Installshield???

Please Login to Remove!

My computer just hangs when trying to install OS 4.0, Is there any other way to get it that doesn't involve Installshield?

Is your USB cable connected via a hub or direct to the PC?

Once installsheild has extracted the files, you should be able to run the apploader util from prog file\common files\research in motion\apploader and then it'll pickup the extracted 4.0 files and allow you to upgrade.

Installshield invokes the apploader once it has extracted the files. You may want to uninstall your desktop software and reinstall a freshly downloaded copy from RIM... could be something messed up with the apploader installed on your machine which would hang it up as soon as installshield invokes the apploader.

cd.
