EDIT: Tried using Playbook App Manager Chrome Browser Extension to install App as suggested by 'pacoman03,' and it worked a treat, so no further help required, (for now at least!)
EDIT2: Thanks to everyone else who responded! Managed to do what I wanted using Chrome Extension, but may have a play with DDPB as well sometime, just for fun!
Hello again. Well I got my new PlayBook, and so far I'm loving it. Using it right now to type this in fact. My next post will be about my initial thoughts and a couple of questions that have come to mind since starting to use it... But for now, my biggest concern is that I can't get Sideloading to work. I'm hoping that someone can tell me where I'm going wrong! Sorry this is such a long post, but I going to try to give as much info about what I'm doing as possible to save on too many supplemental questions. So here we go...
My laptop is running Windows 7. My PlayBook is v188.8.131.524
I have installed BB Desktop Manager and downloaded BBH v184.108.40.206a
I have enabled WiFi file sharing and enabled Developer mode on my PB.
There doesn't seem to be an installer for BBH so I just unzipped the files into a new folder on my desktop and ran the executable file.
It starts up fine, but then says'No BlackBerry OS installed, please browse for your OS folder. This I don't think I have, IS THIS IMPORTANT?
I enter the correct WiFi IP address (About, Network)and password into BBH. Next I plug in my PB via USB and I get a dialog box from BlackBerry Device Manager asking for my Password, which I provide, and the PB is assigned to drive Z on my laptop.
I then add my. BAR file in BBH and press the Install button, but I get a message saying the file has NOT been installed.
If I press the DeviceInfo button in BBH I get an error message saying cannot find file specified.
Anyone know what I am doing wrong? Many thanks for any suggestions.
