    First, make sure you're using your Internet Browser, not your WAP or BlackBerry (BES) Browser. You can make the Internet Browser your default browser by going to ( Settings/Tools --> ) Options --> Advanced Options --> Browser. Hit [Space] until Default browser configuration is set to Internet Browser.

    Second, open your Internet Browser, hit the Menu button and select Options and then select Browser Configuration. Make sure all check-boxes are checked. Other settings :
    • Emulation Mode: BlackBerry
    • Content Mode: WML & HTML
    If all else fails, you can use the same link on your computer using IE 6 with your BlackBerry connected by USB. The page will install an ActiveX component which will connect to your BlackBerry and install the app without the need for Desktop Manager's Application Loader.

    Enabling all those settings under 'Browser Configuration' did it. I didn't realize the browser was set like that out of the box. Thanks!
