    OK, I got it. Once I installed the 32bit version of Java on my 64bit machine it worked. Thanks for your time and help Grimreaper.

    please advise anyone?

    Make sure your are entering the same password as you are getting when enabled developer mode. Also verify the address by clicking on the little man icon.

    I'm sure everyone has been asking where to find .BAR files for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    There are many applications that will work for the BlackBerry PlayBook, they can be native PlayBook installs, or via an emulator, such as a launcher which will run several non-QNX applications on the BlackBerry PlayBook, but also, please keep in mind that some of those applications are paid apps.

    Obviously, I cannot post such links as most of us know it is against rules.

    Hopefully, I will be able to post an all-in-one thread, only after I speak with my team members.

    If you have any further questions, I will try to respond to them as soon as possible.

    Thank you.
