    Missing vendor.xml file

    Advertisement



    While attempting to unlock the vendor themes in the BB.alx file, I was instructed to delete the vendor.xml file before runing the App Loader. Well I didnt do it. After changing all the vendor codes in the .alx file, I saved it and just ran the App Loader. It apperas no changes were made to my Pearl. I went in to the AppLoader folder to try to delete the vendor.xml file, but it wasn't there. Any suggestions?

    Have you actually installed which ever OS you're using on your handheld onto your PC? Also are your sure your looking in the correct folder?

    Yes. I've updated my OS (AT&T) two or three times before. I'm looking in the Common Files/RIM/AppLoader folder and it's not there. Should I reinstall the OS to the device?

    The vendor file is in this path on your PC:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader


    Please follow it carefully as there are other RIM folders on your sytem in other locations.

    The only .xml file there is Device.xml

    I didn't uninstall the old OS. I was only trying to unlock the vendor themes via the blackberry.alx file. There was no mention of deleting vendor.xml before running the AppLoader.

    Its not a big deal if its not there. Cuz you going to delete it anyways. Are you having issues with your getting themes on your pearl?

    OK - maybe a dumb ? but -- Did you install the OS on your desk top? Every thread I have ever read on this type of matter seems to be either never installed the OS on the DeskTop or looking in wrong folder...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ you probably already deleted if you updated recently. That's the only way to update. That's what I'm thinking happened.

    I just downloaded the OS to my computer. Should I just reinstall it?

    Red is right - might as well move on to the real reason for your post -- I have never unlocked the extra themes so I will withdraw from this discussion and let those more qualified step in and try to help!
