    Has anyone else had a problem downloading the BlackBerry Blend? My Z10 wasn't being recognized by the software I had downloaded (it recognized my Q10 just fine) so I decided to just delete and reinstalled the software. But now I just keeps giving me an error message.

    Make sure your Z10 has the bluetooth connection established with your PC?

    Something is wrong with Blend. Mine isn't working, and I can't find a way to re-download it either. Such an awesome program, so I'm a bit ticked off at BlackBerry.

    Delete it and connect your phone to the computer, on your phone you'll get a message to install drivers and a few other things click on drivers and your phone will install it, after this you will need to update the blend software, or at least that's how I installed it from my passport.

    Just tried that and I am still getting the error message. I just want to knock Chen into last year for laying off most of BlackBerry's R&D department.

    What version of Windows you on? The only other thing I can think of is to remove whatever is left of it even the registry entries and try again, my job has me using Windows 10 but my home is linux so I'm dual booting now but before I had windows 7 in a virtual machine and I used to get problems with blend but now I'm not getting any.

    I'm using Windows 10, I'll try to clear as much of the old BlackBerry Blend software and try redownloading again.

    You can't download it, or you can't install it? Two totally different things.

    You can also try deleting all blackberry drivers by using regedit and also remove all blackberry software. Reboot pc, then install fresh copy of link/blend and you will be good to go. Sometimes old blackberry drivers prevent the software from working. Also the drivers somehow get corrupted. This worked for me when all else failed. It fixed my pc running win 7 and 10

    I was able to download it to my daughter's laptop with no issues. I'm going to just get a new desktop and be done with it.

    Look here: Software Download for BlackBerry 10 Desktop Software
    I found separate installers for Windows Blend and Link in the same .exe file.

    Thanks. I got the software uninstalled, downloaded and reinstalled, but it continues to drop the connection, even though my wi-fi signal is plenty strong. Frustrating.
