    Welcome to Pinstack, when loading a theme via the Desktop Manager's Application Loader you should only be trying to load the .alx file, not the .cod.

    that message indicates that you need to install the same OPERATING SYSTEM that is on your device on to your destkop.

    Go to OPTIONS - ABOUT and read the 3rd line down....most likely you can DL the OS from your carriers web site, but if you need help post back your version and we can guide you.

    tdawg -- you need to install the pearl DEVICE operating system on your PC in addition to the Desktop Manager

    see here

    also, to add to what djsmooth said, the cod file is hidden once you open DM. it is the file that tells the alx what to do and you will not see it when loading themes or apps. you will ONLY see the alx file.

    and welcome to pinstack

    yep! that will take care of it!

    most common mistake is not 'installing' the OS, so be sure to choose run or go back to file and double click to execute so it installs on your PC
