    Warning about SP 1 for Desktop Version 4.2

    Advertisement



    I had downloaded and installed 4.2. No problems. Today my coworker pointed out they already had out SP 1 after 4.2 was only out for a few days on RIM's site. After installing SP 1, desktop manager is MISSING ! Not in add/remove programs. Not in the start menu, desktop icon also missing. When trying to run the installer it asks if you want to modify, repair or remove desktop manager. I would advise not downloading and installing SP 1 until they have the bugs worked out.

    Did you try rebooting your pc after the download of SP1? Maybe that will help? I haven't d/l it yet just have DM 4.2.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yuuuup. I think they were 5 days apart if I remember correctly (not a good sign) if you ask me.

    RIM has NOT released Desktop Manager 4.1 SP1. What you downloaded was Device Manager 4.2 SP1. Device Manager is actually part of Desktop Manager but basically only gives you the device drivers. You don't have any of the sync or backup abilities.

    d is right sometimes it helps to read the small print......the only desktop is 4.2. A bit confusing.

    Stay away fro 4.2 for now. SP1 released only a few days apart which is a sure sign that there is major issues with the 4.2 release. Good luck to all who have tried it. Let us know of any other bugs or issues.

    I believe there was a mis-communication in this thread. Just posted these two quotes together to prevent mis-understanding by readers in the future.
