    Try right clicking apploader and run as admin. Then see what happens when you start loader. Should work.

    Someone else was having this problem the other day and that fixed it.

    Also, make sure you only have one device OS on your computer. (Does Vista have control panel?) Go to add/remove programs and uninstall any OS on there except for the one you want. Also, be careful that you DO NOT uninstall Desktop manager - it would be listed next to the OS's

    yea I do just have the one OS on my control panel :P Just going to delete it though and reinstall a 5.0.0 one instead of a 4.7.0 since i am having problems with those, hopefully I will have better luck since i am currently on a 4.7.0.

    and here I also attached a screenshot of my desktop to show everything (don't worry I erased my pin

    Keep in mind that I use XP, but you are familiar with both so here:

    Go to C:/ program files / common files / research in motion / apploader <--right click and run as admin

    Then try it. I think the path may be slightly different since its Vista. Someone who knows chime in real quick (sunkast?)

    The only thing is I can't even wipe my phone right now because bbsak isn't working....So I'm stuck basically at square one

    Does Desktop Manager show your PIN when you have your phone plugged in?

    Do that step anyways while I get you a link for some different instructions so you don't need bbsak. (BBSAK might work after you do that previous step).
