    App Loader Problems w/Vista

    Advertisement



    I know a lot of this has been posted around but I am having a pretty bad problem with DM 4.2 and Vista (x32)

    The DM recognizes my blackberry. I can back-up/restore etc. but today my BB crashed and when I tried to reload the OS through app loader it said "No software available for this device..."

    There is no vendor.xml present and everything is in order.

    When I dl the DM to my new laptop, i did it as an adminstrator yaddah yaddah yaddah.

    When I hooked my BB up to my old XP laptop, it instantly recognized my BB as being out of date so I was able to get back up but does anyone know what the deal is with Vista and DM? Both laptops are running IDENTICAL DMs and have the same Handheld OS loaded as well.

    I realize there is a service pack 2 available but only for x64 Vista.....any ideas?

    My current laptop is Windows Vista Home Premium
    HP Pavilion Notebook/AMD Turion 64x 2
    1982 MB of RAM and a 32 bit OS



    My DM is 4.2.2.12 (March 2007)

    Ran into the same problems with my vista pc and ap loader. When I would back up the OS and have to do a re install, everything went crazy! Had to use my laptop that has xp. Havent been able to fix the problem yet. Hope you have better luck than me.

    okay...at least I'm not crazy. The moron from ATT customer service told me to "take the battery out" and the BB support Service was down so I just got pissed and hung up

    it works fine on my Vista x32. I recommend searching or vendor.xml using the search option in vista, this file is pretty tricky you won't see it unless you search for it, even if you unhide system and hidden apps.

    I see, then i recommend uninstalling DM completley and doing a reg clean after that, reboot and install DM reboot again then try to load the OS to the BB.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i had actually uninstalled all Blackberry programs, ran registry patrol,ran all my virus stuff, rebooted, reloaded DM and OS, rebooted and it is still doing same thing. Vendor.xml was removed as well. I guess I'll just have to deal.

    no you don't just have to deal with it, i will help you find a solution. Do you have the most recent OS installed on the Vista machine?

    So I wiped my handheld and retried and it worked. The DM doesn't detect the upgrade but when I go through app loader it worked.

    Interesting
