    Help with Application Loader

    Advertisement



    Hey all -

    I posted this question in the themes forum, but then I realized it's happening for anything I try to install via Application Loader, so I thought I'd post here as well.

    I am quite new at this, so I apologize if this is a bone-headed question.

    I downloaded and unzipped a couple themes and games. I then went into Application Loader, clicked 'Add', and selected one of the *.alx files. When I clicked 'open' however, a box popped up that says 'No additional applications designed for your device were found".

    I have an AT&T 8800 with OS 4.2.1.79. Desktop Manager is version 4.2.0.10

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!!

    adam

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~there is already something with the same name or similar alx file so you have to delete the entry on the app loader and then complete the proceSs and go back in and load the new alx.... I experinced this when testing a few jar conversions and this was the only way I found I'm sure there is a easyer way I'm just not famialar

    if you have installed the applications/themes before, then possibly removed them, then what ^^ said is correct. if you have downloaded themes and/or applications that aren't made for your device/OS, then you will get the same error.

    Re: Help with Application Loader

    Yeah. This is happening both with brand new apps that I have never installed before as well as one theme that I had. Ill check out the apps list, but I don't think that's the problem.

    This is a corporate bb - could that affect this? I can easily install things ota, so I don't think that's the problem, but I suppose it's possible. I figure if that were the problem I would get a different error than this one.
    Thanks!

    Re: Help with Application Loader

    maybe there are restrictions on your bb due to the IT policy. the PC that you are using to download/install, is it home or work?

    adam - i also noticed that you do not have the latest version of DM...maybe thats it? you need DM 4.2 service pack 2 (im currently sporting 4.2.2.12)

    Thanks for the reply!

    The computer I'm using is at work, so that could be it, but I'm not convinced it is. Is there a way for me to upgrade to the latest DM without losing the existing settings set up by the company? The last thing I want to do is mess something up and have to call them to fix it.

    Re: Help with Application Loader

    The no apps found error is an indication that you are are trying to load an additional application and do not have a copy of the current handheld software, or update package installed on you PC. Without it, apps loader cant do anything.

    Hope this helps.

    What do I need to do to correct this? Having DM is not enough? Thanks!

    Re: Help with Application Loader

    Well, I finally figured it out! I did in fact need to download my handheld software onto my computer. I still don't really understand what that does, but it worked!

    Thanks everyone for your help! If anyone else is having this problem, this is the thread where I found my device software:
