    .JAR files can be used to load software, but they need to be defined by either an .ALX or .JAD file.

    If you have an ALX file, put the JAR (and any other relevant files) into an empty directory, and install with Desktop Manager (Add and point to the directory with the files).

    If you have a JAD file, you can copy it and the JAR (and any other relevant files) onto your BlackBerry. Then open Media Player (yes MP), click the Menu button (button to the LEFT of the trackball) and select Explore. Find and highlight the JAD file and the Download function will be invoked.

    Both ALX and JAD files are just text files which contain various information including the names of files needed for the application which are either extracted from the JAR (which must also be listed) or available in the same location.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Ok. Not sure what you are doing wrong. You need the jar file. The jad file is not useful in this case. Place the jar file in the device memory or SDcard and the use the media browser to install the program.

    Failing that you need to provide details about what you did. If all you say is "I need help!" or "I can't do it" then we don't know what you are doing wrong.

    Remember what Douglas Adams said. Don't panik!

    Download it again. Maybe the download went wrong. Transferring to the card may have gone wrong. Re download and try again. From scratch. When you explore your media card navigate to the jar file and then press down on the trackball while its highlighted. It should ask you if you want to install.

    The jar file. Not the jad file.

    Another method is to convert your jar and jad files to alx and cod files (search in this forum how to coz I can't remember on top of my head after two beers)

    You can then use the Application Loader from the Desktop Manager to "load" your application using the alx and cod files . . .

    Good luck!
