    How about a Driver Pack for USB for 4.0 BES users and above instead of installing DM

    Question Would BES Admins prefer a Driver Pack for USB charging instead of DM on 4.0 BES+?

    I posted a suggestion thread in the RIM suggest section regarding a request RIM to come up with some type of Driver Pack for end users on a 4.0 BES and above. I think it is a little goofy to have to install Desktop Manager when all you need are the drivers for the BB to be able to charge via USB to a PC.

    If a MOD wants to make this some kind of poll, that would be great.

    Thanks.

    I thought XP and Vista install a driver automatically without using the DM, just so you can charge the BB and use it as mass storage. I could be wrong I haven't used either in forever, but I did plug my BB into my brother's computer (with Vista) and it installed a driver to charge it.

    hmm, maybe Vista fixed this issue.

    Most of the corporate world has not upgraded to Vista yet, I dunno, it was just an idea.

    I can say personally that a driver pack from RIM for Linux would be a godsend. Just for charging. The SourceForge project Barry is a little behind the times and difficult to install.

    Not to mention a Linux DM, but that's another thread.

    Re: How about a Driver Pack for USB for 4.0 BES users and above instead of installing

    Do Macs automatically install drivers for a BB w/out DM?

    If not, that would be the Driver Pack:
    XP, MAC, Linux.

    I talk to plenty of end users that have to install DM. Now w/ 4.3 DM which includes Roxio media software, I think's its alot of space to take up when you just need drivers (if your computer doesn't automatically pick it up)

    Side note, not sure if any corp users even use 4.3 DM, all of our clients install 4.2 so there is no Roxio (which is a bulk of 100mb file size for 4.3)

    Can you install Device Manger as a stand alone app? It would have all of the drivers you need, would it not?

    Re: How about a Driver Pack for USB for 4.0 BES users and above instead of installing

    Wanted to confirm it personally before I posted......Windows XP already has the drivers built in to charge a blackberry device. I tried it on one of my comps that doesn't and has never had DM installed on it with my 8700c. As soon as I plugged the unit in, the add device wizard popped up, recognized it as a blackberry and spent about a minute or so installing the drivers without any further prompting from me except pressing the next key.

    Hmm, I have XP on my PC at home, I did a fresh install of XP about a week and half ago. Couldn't charge until I installed DM.

    I also talk to alot of corp and government users that have to install DM just for the drivers. I wonder if its a service pack thing (i have SP2 on my PC) not sure

    I am running XP home with SP2 on all my machines with no issues concerning drivers with any of the comps I use.

    I would second this.. Some people can't install software on the work PCs so it would be nice to be able to charge almost anywhere.

    There is a drivers pack.

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22

    Select desktop manager 4.3, click next and scroll down.

    Do not install it on a PC that has the desktop manager though, it will mess it up.
