    Have you tried an install through.

    cProgram Files>Common Files>Research in Motion>App Loader (make sure you erase the vendor file)> then there should be a small phone located in the files, right click on it and run it as an administrator and you should be good!

    First, welcome to !!! Sorry I missed that earlier!

    I would recommend you download the OS again and reinstall to ensure you have no corrupt files, etc.

    What process are you using to install the OS?

    I have had the most success by backing up everything on the device with DM, then using BBSAK to wipe it. After the wipe, I use loader to install the OS, then restore with DM. I know there is more involved that just simply upgrading, but it seems to work better for me. I've changed OS's on my Tour 20 times this month.
