I got the same thing - clicked the "OK" box. It closed the dialog box with the above message then nothing. Application loader was no longer open, desktop manager didnt have anything connected to it (even thought the 8100 was connected via USB). Now the phone keeps flashing its red led light, and wont start up. No screen, no light, no nothing except the red led light flashing.

Im trying this process but no luck so far. I have a BB Pearl from ATT
This is whet Im doing:
- I installed DM 4.5
- Installed ATT application for my phone
- Plug off the battery and connected the phone to a USB port
- Started the DM and open the App Loader
- Unchecked the backup feature
- The App Ldr starts to erase the app....seems to go through
- The App Ldr starts to load some kind of software....seems to go throuth
- In the middle of this process I plugged the battery back into the phone
- The App Loader initializes the phone..I see like the phone is restarting.
- I get the 507 number in the phone screen
- The App Ldr starts to load the modules....seems to go through
- The phone restarts again and I get number 543 along with a picture
- The App Ldr tries to connect to the phone and it takes FOREVER...
- Nothing else happens.

White screen with the error code.

what option in the JL should I use?...4 or 5??..
I used 5..I found it in another post....but....guess what...the thing is not working either. The JL says:
Error: unknown request
But I dont think it is doing nothing in the phone. I tried then loading the app again and I still get the 543 error.

option 4 wipe.
You're really not going to know 100% that it completed its task I guess you just have to trust what it says.
If the issue persists you may want to find another version of software there may be an issue with the copy that you have. Are you trying to reload 4.2 software or are you upgrading to the 4.5?

I tried to upload another application and it gives me fatal error at the end. I have a BB 8100 and I'm installing the app from the ATT site.
This is the file from the ATT site:

Have you tried to possibly utilizing software from another carrier to see if you run into the same fatal errors?

1. Are you ever getting an error message or did you just give up cause it was "taking forever"? Sometimes this can take OVER AN HOUR.
2. If the problem persists suggest you delete DM 4.5 and install DM 4.3 (without Roxio) I have found these issues tend to be corrupt Desktop Manager problems.

Thats something I never heard of. Is this a pretty common scenario of having a bad DM software?

I got error code JVM 513..I ran this walkthru and now (also instaled lates OS when it asked me to) my phone is stuck on the hourglass of death...What shoudl I do?!
Also I got that stupid error code when my friend tried unlocking my phone, after 10 tries it said "wiping handheld" so I pulled the battery. WHY THE HELL do the phones do this after the 10 tries..please tell me its a ****ing defect because that is the stupidest thing I have ever ****ing seen.
sorry but im very angry right now =-(
