    The literature provided with desktop software states that it can be used with Win 98 se. When I try to install it says must have win 2000 or higher. What can I do?

    I must insist that you immediately go to the nearest window and toss your PC tower out of it. Shut window, wash hands.

    Repeat as needed.

    Have you tried running Windows updater to make sure you have the latest updates from MS?

    But, if he is posting in the 81XX forum, the older version will not work with the 81XX versions. I think its 4.1 and higher for that series phones. Since he did not specify, we can only guess...

    adagio - on the 'new pc in a week' part...be sure that if you buy a pc with windows vista on it, that you download desktop manager from RIM's site...that way you get the newest available for windows vista just a general fyi

    Re: cant install desktop manager using windows 98 SE!

    I'm almost positive that the desktop manager can be installed on Windows 98 SE. Don't have it on me now, but if you check the pamphlet that came with the pearl (in the section where it talks about downlading the desktop manager) there is a link to some sort of usb driver that you have to download (from microsoft.com). Will post the link once I get home if noone's posted it yet. I was having the same problem (just upgraded from a 7290) but found that I was able to install apps with my mac using the old desktop manager.

    Sure it'll be solved with another $300

    But I must say, I doubt it would would work with 98
