I have a BlackBerry 7290 and seem to have problems each time I try to connect my BlackBerry through the Desktop Manager. Last time I uninstalled the software and it worked again...more likely that I didn't plug it into the USB 2.0 card/port (was using USB 1.1). This time, when I try to launch the Application Loader and click Next, it does nothing. I tried USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports (on a PCMCIA card). Do I have to use the newest version of Desktop Manager to do this maybe? I think I have the version right before 4.2 (4.1.2 I think). I just want to install some software to the BB. Anyway I can install the software using the cod/alx files? Or these must be from Application Loader? What does the BB browser accept as a acceptable install extension? Thanks.
