    C:\program files (X86) \common files\research in motion\ shared\ loader files\java

    what am I doing wrong?

    I dont know if it matters but I did the Hybrid cut and paste to the Java files and installed using loader
    Click Browse and choose the actual OS install folder that you want shrunk
    so instead of C:\program files (X86) \common files\research in motion\ shared\ loader files\
    you want C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9530-v4.7.0.141_P4.0.0.174 (if you`re shrinking a .141 install)
    make more sense now?

    I have done exactly what you said except that the RIM common files are under X86 even though I am running Vista64 (Dont understand that)

    This is what the error code reads:
    access to the path C:\program files (x86)\common files\research in motion\shared\loader files\9530-v4.7.0.141_p4.0.0.174\java\removed files is denied

    I have tried everything, any other suggestions?

    Thanks!!!

    yes it is
    but depending on when you downloaded it, it might not be the one I just fixed

    have you tried right clicking and Run As Administrator?
    if that doesn`t work, I would try to redownload it and see if that works

    Right clicking on the program and Running As Administrator, SOLVED the problem!!!
