I had to remove any remnants of Roxio before getting a clean install.

The best you can do for installing on vista is pray. If youre not a religious person then try these steps:
> Change the DTM setup .exe to .zip and extract the contents to a folder
> Run the Desktop Software.msi file for the install
still not working?
> Try disabling all startup items and then install from .msi
> Also Disable User Account Control completely
still not working?
>Try creating a new user profile, logging out and logging in as the new user, then install from .msi
still not working?
> Try clearing the TEMP folders and run Disk Cleanup
still not working?
> Try a Windows Update
still not working!!!!?
> Try installing DTM from the blackberry website (choose RUN instead of Save)
> or try downloading an older 4.x version (even though you should be using 4.2.2 [with or without MM])
I tried the first couple of suggestions without success. I then deleted everything in the Windows/Temp folder, created a new Administrator account, disabled the Startup programs (msconfig), then installed using the .msi file. It WORKED. THANKS!

I've tried updating using SP1 and SP2 for the desktop manager but I can't get those to run at all.

Has anyone else had these types of issues and any thoughts on resolving. Desktop manager 4.1 installed fine but crashes in Vista when I run it.

Thanks.
Have you ever tried the compatible to windows xp2.
I mean when you run the setup you can choise Attribute->Compatible, chose to use Windows XP2?

lol... Mine was disastrous. After a couple of unsuccessful installs, I finally had to edit the registry directly to kill whatever remnants of the RIM software (and Roxio) that I could find. Then I spent 2 hours on the phone with a very confused BB support lady who eventually started cursing vista herself. We both gave up.

Then I followed this procedure:

1 In Microsoft Windows Explorer, go to the C:\ drive and create a new folder called TEMP2.
2 Open the Control Panel and double-click the System icon.
3 On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables.
4 In the User variables list, select TEMP and click Edit.
5 In the Variable value field, change the file path to C:\TEMP2 and click OK.
6 In the User variables list, select TMP and click Edit.
7 In the Variable value field, change the file path to C:\TEMP2 and click OK.
8 In the Environment Variables window, click OK.
9 In the System Properties window, click Apply, then click OK.
10 Repeat the installation procedure for the BlackBerry Desktop Software.

I stole that from the web.

Then I banged my head against the wall for another hour or so. I finally got it back...all except for Roxio, which I suspect is a culprit in my misery.

Are there any other media managing proggy's available for an 8830?

[edit] Yes,...Windows Media Player, lol.
