BlackBerry Desktop Software System Requirements
Have you completely removed any previous version of Desktop Manager?
Can you please delete your current file, and reattempt to download Desktop Manager 7 again.
Something is definitely not right here, if you have already done all of these suggestions.
the new version 7 is crap....i keep getting a freeze at preview sync.....(whatever that is) and aparantly is a known issue over at blackberry support forums. DONT DO IT!!!
i keep getting redirected to official blackberry download site which offers me os6.1 every time i click download... i dont know whats happening exactly.. or maybe its trying to tell me 6.1 is soo good i should install it instead of os7.. anywho help is appreciated.
Don't download ver 7 till rim works out the sync bug.
christ trying to update blackberry os's literally makes me want to go on a killing spree... its like trying to dissassemble and set clearances on a small block chevy with a screwdriver... its an uphill battle both ways. simply clicking the update button in desktop software doesnt work... even when you know there are updates.
