BB 5.0 Messenger - DM wants to delete it?
every time I run DM 5.0, and try to add/remove apps, it wants to delete or downgrade my BBM 5.0. I deleted the device OS from my pc but it keeps happening - how can I avoid this?
When RIM officially releases 5.0 that will stop. The download was leaked so I don't think DM even recognizes it yet. That would be my guess.
the only way to make it stop is to replace bbm cod in your apps

and how would I do this? sorry to jack the post but I'm trying to load games via DM to my Bold and since I have the BBM 5.0 it's trying to delete the BBM...

The .cod files would need to be copied here:

Does that make sense?
Are these instructions on how to load the new BBM 5.0? If so I already have that loaded... are you saying I need to do the same for the game files? My issue is that when I attempt to load games using the DM it shows it wants to downgrade my BBM 5.0 to BBM 4.6, which i definitely do not want to happen... is there a workaround for this?
No, they're not instructions to load the new BBM, but to tell the DM to stop wanting to downgrade BBM. Whenever you launch DM it compares the information on your device against the information in the files on your PC. Right now the BBM files do not match up because the version on your device is newer than what is in the OS file on your PC.
How did you load the new BBM? OTA or via DM?
DM... downloaded the zip files from BlackBerryOS
LOL @ DM wanting to delete it. I wanted to delete it after 3 minutes of usage.
Did you place the BBM 5 files in the directories as RoGro said, or load through Add/Remove by browsing to the files? His method should stop that from happening.
I ran into the same problem before with Documents2Go on my 8120. I had updated it, but the leaked 4.5 OS I was using was determined that I should have the version that came with it.
I've seen on a few post relating to BBM 5.0 everyone talking about these destinations but I don't have this. I can get up to

But not further than that. Can anyone help with this? I don't have the option of 'Shared' or 'Loader Files' or 'Java'
This would indicate that you don't have a current copy of your device's OS (operating system) installed on your PC or laptop.
