    The 7100i is not able to upgrade to the 4.2 handheld OS.

    Where did you get the OS from?

    This is where you get the 7100i software... https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...B9D5EE16489088

    I downloaded it from Blackberry website.http://na.blackberry.com/eng/service.../req_4dot2.jsp
    And in the fine print it says it works for the 7100 series.

    "Note: BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.2 works with RIM 850™, RIM 857™, RIM 950™, RIM 957™, BlackBerry 5800 Series, BlackBerry 5790, BlackBerry 6700 Series, BlackBerry 6200 Series, BlackBerry 6510, BlackBerry 7100 Series, BlackBerry 7200 Series, BlackBerry 7500 Series, BlackBerry 7700 Series, BlackBerry 8700 Series and BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8100 devices. Check with your service provider for the software version you should use with your BlackBerry device."

    Ah I understand now, you are trying to load the Desktop Manager.

    Basically you need to run the .exe file and it will install a new icon for Desktop Manager 4.2. I would uninstall the first version first.

    Ok. So there is no actual software version 4.2 for the handheld. It just the desktop upgrade.
