    I believe this has been reported and it probably has to due with the Lack of 64 Bit Drivers. Is your desktop a 32 bit machine?

    Try downloading now:

    Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.2 SP1 worked for me, on the 64-bit version of Vista Ultimate. Whereas before, 4.2 (non SP1) did not work.

    Thanks so very much for this info. I have upgraded from Win XP Pro to Vista Ultimate and will now try this version of BDM (with SP1). There seems to be a lot of trouble out there with BDM and Vista. I am running 32 bit. Will update thread if it works or not

    i upgraded to version 4.2 SP1 and it still gets random "errors and needs to close" when i sync.

    However i believe this is related to choosing to sync with "Outlook Express" which is non-existant, i asumed it would sync with Windows Mail, but looks like i'm SOL at this point without an MSOffice installed.
