    I have installed and uninstalled about 10 times now and cant get the ******** thing to work. But now I have alcohol in my system so it should work for me now. Everything is easier after a few drinks.........right?

    But seriously if I can't get it to work after a couple more tries I'll stick with 4.3.

    They also have a new Device Manger there.

    But I'm scared to try either one. The stuff I have does everything I need it to do, and there's absolutely zero info there about any new features or bug fixes.

    My guess is that it's all pretty much the same thing but works better with Vista. I don't use Vista. I'll wait for the more adventurous of you to give them both a try but I have a business and life to run so I'm not taking any chances. Sorry!

    Coming from the 4.3 DM, it has different (but same) icon layout meaning the placement, I'm actually able to set what I want to have as a short back up (contacts, bookmarks, anything I want in a full back up without a full one). It's all good.

    Sorry if not clear, a little alcohol and tired makes a bad brain but it made me finally dl DM 4.5 correctly.

    Does it matter what carrier you have for the desktop software?

    Yes very bad title... Lol. I just accidently clicked it.

    "Desktop Manager 4.5 Officially Released!"

    That would have been a good title, nonetheless, good stuff!

    I'm using DM 4.6 and don't want to downgrade.

    Can you minimize to tray? I remember one of the versions couldn't do it. I know 4.6 actually has that option. 4.5 being released is a sign btw!!

    Installed successfully.

    Minimize to tray did not happen for me.

    Everything is more streamlined in the sense that there are no pop-up windows, save the Synchronize Certificates button.

    The layout changed to a landscape format, which looks nicer, IMHO.

    Functionality seems identical to before, this seems to be a cosmetic upgrade only.

    Installed on my Vista Home Premium laptop after uninstalling 4.3

    Sorry Joel, your link does not work. You actually have to go to the Blackberry homepage, click on Software dowload and follow direction and proceed from there. Just an update.

    for everyone who is having problems. there are two software packages you need to get. You need to get the Desktop Manager AND the Device Manager.

    That's the way it seems to me. I don't see any additional functionality.

    If you have the new Desktop Manager why would you need the Device Manager?
