    What can't be installed? Parallels/VMWare?? They only work w/ Intel processors..

    If you wanted to put yourself through alot of misery and pain you could try to install Virtual PC for Mac - that worked for the PPC based Mac's but its really slow.

    Hi,
    I'm pretty new to both Mac and using a BB for personal use (as opposed to the one issued by previous companies). I've been using MissingSync to synch my BB to my Mac (calendar and address book). So do I now need to get PocketMac as well in order to install applications and the BB Desktop Manager?

    Thanks!

    Re: How To: Install Apps via a Mac

    Hi.. and Welcome to the Stacks.. God choice on computer and phone

    Theres no easy answer to your questions unfortunately.. If you have access to a Windows PC (or don't mind installing Parallels/VMWare/BootCamp to access Windows) then I'd suggest keeping the Missing Sync since you already paid for it... You can then use Missing Sync for your everyday syncing and then flip over to Windows for the app installs (that you can't do wirelessly).

    Or, you can also install PocketMac and just use that for App installs - I do understand people have had problems installing some applications via PocketMac so its not a 100% perfect solution. The one thing you can't do on the Mac with any program is an OS upgrade for your Pearl (Not that you HAVE to do them, but occasionally they do release upgrades.. You need Windows for that).

    I'm content with PocketMac for everything I have to do - I've never had a problem. I tried MissingSync but it wasn't worth shelling out the $40 for it (and I couldn't find any cracks.. not that I'd ever use those.. I'm just saying!


    Hope this didn't confuse ya.. Let me (or anyone here) know if you need more info!

    Re: How To: Install Apps via a Mac

    for those who have successfully loaded apps via pocketmac, have you experienced any lengthy delays... i'm attempting an install of pacman via pocketmac onto my pearl, and its been 40plus minutes so far... if it loads successfully i'll update w the final time, just curious if others encountered the same findings. thx

    Re: How To: Install Apps via a Mac

    I've installed apps and themes before, although not Pac-Man and haven't had any delays like that.. it took a matter of minutes.

    If you want to send me a link to download I can give it a shot (If its a free install or demo)..

    Re: How To: Install Apps via a Mac

    but what about applications (say from Handango) that only have an .exe file? I couldn't figure out how to install these.

    Re: How To: Install Apps via a Mac

    u could always install bootcamp and windows on your intel mac, then run the pc software from your intel mac to install apps and such, this is how i run it, and to syn my mail/calendar i use pocket mac which RIM now owns copyright to and has available to download from blackberry.com

    Any ideas what else I need? Thanks.
    Posting 2 months later trying to help :-)...

    The opera team messed up the installer. You need to open operette-hifi.alx with a text editor and remove operette-hifi-1.cod under the files section. Save the file and try again. All better!

    You probably figured this out by now anyway, hope that helps.
