    Question Help with App Loader?

    Advertisement



    I just got my 8100, and I want to know how to install .alx, and .cod files, but whenever I open the Desktop Loader, the Application loader isn't even there. Like, it doesn't even show! Can anyone help me, or maybe teach me to convert it into a .jar?

    If the application loader doesn't show, you could try reinstalling the BB software onto your computer.

    Okay. What version of Software do I need for an 8100? Both the DM and the Phone Software. What's the latest version, like in numbers?

    I think the latest desktop manager that is publicly available is 4.3. The desktop manager is compatible with all blackberry's. As for phone software, that just depends on the author of the program. You need to extract the alx/cod files to a folder somewhere, and then use application loader to load that folder. You will only see the alx or the cod file (cant remember which one) that corresponds to the software to install. For instance, some programs may extract 5 or more files, but the apploader knows which one is the "master" file, and will only display that one when it comes time to install. If the software is designed for your phone and your phone's operating system, then it should be as easy as choosing what to install and letting it go.

    By any chance are you on BES? If so, its possible that this may be an IT policy issue.

    If not, try this - go to:

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

    and click on the Loader application.

    This is great, but why did the App Loader disappear from DM 4.3?
