    Charging 8703e on PC without software install

    Advertisement



    I've read that you have to have the drivers for the Blackberry 8703e for it to charge on a PC. I have seen exactly the same thing. I don't want to install 35MB on every PC I want to charge on. I have read some posts that say their blackberry charges on every PC, not mine.

    I've figured out which drivers are necessary for it to charge and it's only 30KB.

    Here's how I did it:

    Download Less MSIerablesedit- can't put link in on Stack1) - google it.

    Launch the 35 MB 8703e installer (I have sprint). DO NOT INSTALL, just let it get to the first "NEXT" screen.

    There will be files created in your "temp" folder, mine was located under c:\documents and settings\username\local settings\temp (you might want to empty that folder before doing this). You're specifically looking for the file that ends in .MSI.

    Open the .MSI file in Less MSIerables, and extract the following files into it's own folder:
    (this is for XP, it looks like there is a 9X driver also)

    rimusbnt.cat
    RimUsbNT.inf
    RimUsb.sys

    Now, exit the installer and Less MSIerables.

    Plug in blackberry and point driver location to the folder with the extracted files.

    Presto, charging on the PC for less than 30Kb.

    Copy driver files to your memory key for usage at a later date on a different PC, or put them on an ftp site for download to the PC you're trying to charge.

    Hope this helps someone.

    I charge mine on my work desktop all the time and do not have the software loaded.

    Hi rubik, welcome to pinstack. I was under the impression all you have to do is plug in the BB and install the driver. I as well have a pc that I can plug my BB into and it charges fine, but only from the back ports, not the front.

    With the 4.2 DM you can choose the custom install and only install the Device Manager (driver basically). Without some form of BB drivers it will not charge from the USB port.
