    Install your handheld o.s on to the pc that you have your desktop manager installed on. Both programs are needed or the desktop manager will not allow you to install 3rd party apps or themes.

    go to your carriers web site and download your phone operating system aka: handheld software. After the download is complete install it onto your pc like any other program. Re-boot the pc and you should be good to go.

    The reason is as srl7741 said is your theme was created for a different operating system than you have for your bb! so your updating it to make it work! good work srl7741!!

    I beleive so I've gone to my carriers website and they have 2 things to download there.. 1 being the desktop manager and the other is the Handheld Code for the curve.... Still not 100% this is the os though? How can I tell, is it a standalone program from the desktop manager?

    I

    Actually, Jeff, it wasn't that the theme was exported for a different HH S/W versaion but a quirk in the Applications Loader feature of Desktop Manager. App loader requires having to be able to find the current version of the HH S/W installed on the PC before it will allow loading any other S/W.

    Hope this helps.

    They are two different programs. The desktop manager you have installed and is what gave the error message to begin with. The handheld code is the other software that needs install to the pc. Then when you plug your black berry into the desktop manage it will recongize the device and allow you to install the .alx file (which is a theme file)

    Well I did install the Handheld code and once it was done it asked if I want to launch the Desktop manager and I did, plugged my BB in and still same error.... Wow this is getting frustrating

    Re-boot the pc first before starting everything again.

    If the Hand Held code filename for the curve includes 8310 and thr app ver number installed on your BB os later the it's what you want. I'm not on my PC so can't really check the exact format of rhe filename. Sorry

    Steve, does the OS install ask if you want to start DM on completion? I know the DM installer soes, but I can't remember if the OS installer does also.

    Greg, open desktop manager, then the help and about menu selections. Click on the device software tab. what is listed there?

    Yes it does ask that but i am leary of the computer memory it's not seeing the new directory that is created when he installed the handheld os. Re-booting the pc with ensure that gets seen as new.
