    You can then run DM and it should find the updated version.

    I followed the instructions, but had no luck. DM doesn't seem to recognize the new version as an update. Tried it with the AT&T version 4.2.1.154 as well, no luck.

    Did you delete the vendor.xml file?

    Go to Options > About and check your current version you have loaded. What does that say?

    Humm.. It has worked for everyone else so far tonight. If you have deleted all previous versions of the OS from your PC, installed this one and deleted the vendor.xml it should work. The only thing I can think of is are you running DM 4.3 and you are checking install with BIS during the install correct? After doing that it should prompt to upgrade when starting DM. You can try redownloading the OS also to be sure the one you got is not corrupt.

    I am using DM version 4.3. Are you saying I should have uninstalled DM as well? I thought I only had to uninstall the handheld software to get the handheld upgrade to work.

    Note: The update worked fine when i went from 4.1 to the current version.

    No need to uninstall DM. Just all versions of the OS you have on the PC.

    Nope did that. DM isn't finding the new software.

    OK, try one other thing for me. Browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files and rename or move the other OS folders that are there. Also, your profile says no to BES, is that still correct?

    I was successful performing the update and my Pearl works fine. No noticable differences from .96 at this point.

    I had installed a couple of third party games that reverted back to their "trial" state. Hopefully I can get new registration codes for them.

    You should be able to use your orginal codes since they are usually just tied to your PIN.

    That's correct. I tried removing the Installed files, and then installing the new OS. No difference.
