    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I had it working perfect with Vista RC1. Then I moved it to another USB port and now I'm back to the Vista problem with the device not being recognized. I noticed a 4.2 SP1 and was wonder what that was all about?

    That is the Device Manager, not Desktop Manager. Device Manager is a small part of the Desktop Manager and you dont have any of the functionality. The only thing you really get is the drivers. Might help with your Vista problem, but you can't use it to sync anything.

    DM 4.2 worked like a charm when I switched from my 8700c to 8700g. I used the switch BB devices options. It restored all my settings tot eh way they were on the 8700c. Only thing it didn't back up were my OTA installs. Oh well, I got em all back now! I also wish there was a way to back up your BB messenger contact list. I had to re add them again.

    Re: Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.2 details and download.

    Love the cleaner interface on 4.2.0.10. However, very disappointed that the new "Media Manager" feature is not available unless... :::ahem::: BB device software is v4.2 or later. SUCKS! Would love to work with the new feature, but I'll wait until 8700 has an upgrade to 4.2. Would buy the pearl, but I hate the keyboard. What a mistake!!

    Re: Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.2 details and download.

    Does anybody know how to customize the Desktop Manager 4.2. We want to build a packaged install, and have only the "Backup/Restore", "Switch Device Wizard" and maybe the "Synchronize" option displayed. Our plan is to hide or remove the "Media Manager" and "App Loader", so that our End users dont use it. Are there registry settings that would assist with this? Thank you.

    Re: Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.2 details and download.

    Just updated to the new Desktop Manager 4.2 SP1 on my 7130G - without a data plan btw - with no problems at all (windows xp sp2). The media manager icon lurks enticingly and you click it and get a glance of the wonders of data transfer when a message pops up advising you need the handheld software 4.2 as well - its like only reaching second base, the exhiliration and the letdown
    surely this update must arrive soon - please .............

    You need desktop manager which can be found here BlackBerry Desktop Software.

    Hope this helps.

    I followed the link suggested by Rcbjr above to download the desktop manager . I seem to have the same problem as lisatp. When I download the blackberry desktop software (v. 4.2 on download section of blackberry.com), it installs software but only the device manager opens up when I go to Start>Programs>Blackberry>Desktop manager. When I try to open the Desktop Manager via the exe icon in Start>Programs>Blackberry>Desktop manager, the computer does not find an associated program.

    Addtionally, I also reinstalled the device software 3 times already. The last time I followed (blackberryforum.pinstack.com/5127-how perfomr clean uninstall desktop manager.html) instructions.

    Any suggestions so that the Device Manager will also be downloaded?
