    I have been getting this error ever since I opened and installed my desktop manager software.”[FONT=Verdana] no additional applications designed for your device were found" [/FONT]I made sure I am running the most recent version 4.3 and also downloaded and installed the os from my carrier, verizon, still I have no luck I have read every post on pinstack about this issue and all of them seem to be of no help or are severely outdated telling me to update the desktop manager to 4.2 so any new help on this subject would b greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Sounds like you have done the right things --

    Are you sure that you have installed the device operating system on your desktop? (After you DL you need to execute the file). Also please confirm the OS version is the same as is on your 8130...

    Do you have any new apps you are trying to install or do you get this error when you open Desktop Manager?

    Yeh mine has never worked and I have all the updates for OS and DM. Always have gotten the message that shady7 listed above. Luckily almost every thing I do is OTA or can be done with mass storage mode enabled

    Yes, essentially your are correct. This also applies to the Operating System. After you download the file from your carrier you need to run it so it will extract and install all of the related files....

    Re: no additional applications designed for your device were found

    Silverone.......shady7 said that he/she has encountered this issue ever since he's downloaded the newest version (4.3) of the desktop manager!! I've ready plenty of posts with stackers stating they've received this same error when installing any/all apps

    Not sure what the problem is, but I too have 4.3 (Desktop Mngr) and I want to know what this issue is before I encounter it

    I have 4.3.06 on my BB and I downloaded the os software straight from verizons web page with the link I got from a sticky in the 81xx forums. Now that i looked at the software I think I may have downloaded the DM from verizon not a os can anyone send me a link for Verizon's OS

    Your DL is probably OK so long as it is the same OS version on your desktop AND if you executed the file / set up launcher after you downloaded. Verizon is your carrier, correct?

    Here is the link to Verizon...

    Re: no additional applications designed for your device were found

    One way to verify that the Device Software is on the PC is to Open Desktop Manger and pull down the help menu. Select the About Desktop Manager Option. THen click on the Device Software. Compare the what is listed with what you have downloaded and with is listed on your BB when you go to Options/About. If the BB is a higher version you need to update your PC, If the PC doesn't list the file you downloaded, you didn't correctly install it on your PC.

    ^^ i'll also restate that you can locate whether you actually installed the device OS by above or go to control panel>add/remove programs and see if you have two listings for blackberry. one for the DM and one for the device software.

    the most common mistake is to not EXECUTE/INSTALL the exe file, but simply download it.
