    I have the latest 2.0.0.6149 after a fresh restore and the DDPB app won't connect to the PB. It says IP address and password don't match. I have tripled checked the passwords and IP and it won't work. Is there a setting or something I'm missing?

    I also have had this issue. I couldn't figure out what was wrong, and instead use DDPB 1.0.7, which works fine.

    Download it here

    Thanks but on that version it says done like the android player went on my playbook but I don't get an icon for it. I used air browser to see if it was on the pb and it was in the misc. folder. IDK pain in the **S!

    You need to update to NetworkFrame 2.0.

    Try using this to install instead, it is a lot easier and I use it. You just drag the .bar file into the .bat file and it will bring up a command prompt. It's easy and simple!

    4.0 or something is the most current. That won't work?

    I see there are two thread for the same problem. I can't get ddpb 1.08 to work. Everything is set up properly (in developer mode, right password, right address, etc). I'm on .net 4 as well.

    What am I missing here. I mean we can see the android director via windows explorer. It's there some simpler way to get the bar file on the playbook.

    Per the other active thread on the same topic, I got some bars to load via BBHP
    BBHTool (Public Version) - Downloads - BBH-Plus Forums

    The remote bar load scheme works. The drag and drop or explorer mode doesn't. At least I have google maps now. Odd there is no blackberry maps for the playbook.

    I thought BBSAK was a slick program, but BBHP is even more gonzo. I swear RIM should just hire the Blackberry hackers.

    You need to make sure you install the latest version of Java. Go to Java.com to get the lastest version.

    Hi bbbeast_11208,

    I understand your frustration, since I just went through the same experience today. I managed to resolve the problem by installing the latest Java JDK 1.6 32 bit version.

    It is important for the JDK to be 32 bit, even though your Windows installation is 64 bit, because the DDPB Installer is itself a 32 bit app. I suspect the root problem could be either that DDPB expects to find the JDK under a certain path, or that the 32 bit DDPB cannot load the 64 bit compiled Java libraries.

    The 32 bit JDK can be downloaded from here (click the Windows x86 link):
    Java SE Development Kit 6u26

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks a bunch for that post bookplayer!
    I had tried everything here this afternoon to learn this sideloading and although I had java installed it was the 64 bit version for my 64 bit system. After installing 32 bit java the DDPB installer connected to the playbook. I was pretty frustrated and searching these forums brought the answer.

    Cheers again

    I had 32bit java installed. However, for some reason, win 7 64 bit won't run it unless I specifically add the location in my path. This could be just a fluke on my installation, but if you want to add 32 bit java to your path in win 7 64 bit, do the following:

    start->control panel->system and security->system->advanced system settings

    Click on environment variables. Move the elevator (scroll panel) to find "path". Click on "path". Click on "edit". Add to the existing path the following:
    ;"d:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin";

    Note I said ADD and not REPLACE. You still need whatever was in your path. Watch out for those embedded spaces. [Spaces in directory names are plain insane.] You may be using the C drive instead of the D drive. The semicolon is a separator. Your last entry in the path might have a semicolon at the end already. A second one doesn't hurt. Click OK to save the change. Click OK to get out of the control panel. This being windows, you have to boot to get the system to accept the change. [I can't believe in 2012 a path change needs a boot. Come on Redmond, get with the program.]

    I can now get DDPB to see my playbook.

    I still can't get bbhtool or ddpm to connect to my playbook.. BBhtool used to work perfectly.

    playbook tools works just fine after re-adding java to my windows 7 64 path.

    Uninstalled all java.. Rebooted. Re-installed nothing. Remove the current version and instal jdk_6u26 32 and 64.. nothing..

    DDPB says invalid ip/ password. (both are currect)

    BBHTOOLS says bat has NOT been successfully installed immediately after saying clicking install.

    Any ideas? I'm a network admin and i'm stumped..

    Not true at all. Other wireless devices don't affect the connection, especially if you're connecting by USB.

    For people with this issue: can you get Link or Desktop Manager to connect to your PlayBook using the same password?

    Are you using a current version of Java? Whether you are on a 64-bit or 32-bit machine you will need the 32-bit version as has been pointed out. The platform version of Java has to match that of the programme trying to use it so a 32-bit programme needs a 32-bit version of Java. DDPB works just fine with Java 8, and the still supported JRE 1.7.0.67.

    Is the tablet in Development Mode?

    If connecting by USB, is the port USB3? I've seen issues in using USB3 ports with all kinds of devices, so try using an older USB2 port.
