    Need advice re: desktop SW- getting new laptop

    Folks, I have upgraded the OS (to Telstra) and the Themes (adding Vodafone Today. Since I am getting a new laptop computer tomorrow, can I do anything to preserve the OS and Themes on the 8700 or will these get knocked out when I install Desktop SW on my new laptop?

    If you copy your themes, your latest Backup and the OS Download files to the new PC, once you install the Desktop Manager on your new PC, run the OS download on the new PC and the next time you need to run the App loader, you will need to add the themes.

    Hope this helps

    As I suspected, have to essentially repeat the upgrade. Thanks for the clarification RCBJR.

    Thanks. I needed to know this too. Can't you also use Backup/Restore and back everything up from the BB to the new PC? That's what I thought about doing.

    Thanks for the follow up folks. My company's technical support team is going to give me a new "image" of our enterprise SW, so I cannot really do a simple disk copy. It is a bit puzzlesome that you cannot back up from the device and restore...

    My external CD drive which I got with my current laptop is no longer working so it looks like making a zip file and emailing it will be my only option.
