    Unistall your current DM, or remove instead of repair DM. Reboot your computer then reinstall the DM.

    i must have been confusing 2 software components....the 4.7 148 and the regular 4.7 I couldnt load DM with the 148 download to restore back up had to reinstall cd 4.7 to restore.

    When going to add remove programs to delete which one do I keep ?

    Are you trying to delete DM from add/ remove programs?

    nevermind I see the error in my ways. I thought the download gave me a full program for some reason I wasnt able to get dm through it unless I check run app.....I opened 4.7 from cd and still had 148 installed then selected update and was able to select 148.........sweet BTW I have 2 one for me one for my son.

    You may be cause there is 4.7 Device Software (which is OS) and 4.7 Desktop Software (which is DM) in add/remove programs. Anyways, I am glad you got it working...

    You jumped from newb to pro

    Glad everything worked great. Don't forget to always do a battery pull when all is done.

    Check out apps by tafasa (games)...some must have apps are: meterberry, quicklaunch (it flickers on .148 but the developer is gonna release a new version in a few days), berry weather. Those are paid. When you are adding apps, some can leak memory so just watch them closely. That's why meterberry is a must Also with bbs, since they are like computers, you need to restart them every few days to optimize performance (battery pull). Enjoy! . I love mine!!!

    Yeah, the apps are only for your phone...it's a bummer...you might want to try and give him the OTA link, but if they require an activation code, they won't work. Glad you got your phone to where it should have been from the beginning
