    Typically means one of these:

    1) You don’t have the .alx and .cod files in the same directory. Desktop installation requires as a minimum, a .cod file and a .alx file. When you use the RIM Desktop Manager Application Manager to install, you specify the .alx file, but the .cod file must be in the same directory as the .alx file. Both files are needed for installation.
    2) You need to upgrade your version of the RIM Desktop Manager. You can download the latest version of the Desktop Manager here. I’ve had people tell me that you need to first uninstall the old version before installing the new one, but I haven’t found this necessary.
    3) You need to install the proper device software for your model BlackBerry to your PC. Please note, I’m not saying that you need to update your device OS. I’m saying you need to download the software that tells the Desktop Manager how to properly talk to your device. RIM has unfortunately named this software the “Device” software, which implies to me that it is something that should go on the handheld, but it actually is installed to your PC. To see which version of the device software you already have installed, go to the About menu on the Desktop Manager and click the “Device Software” tab.

    You just need both files in the same directory on your PC - so when you unzip the app or whatever make sure that both are together.

    had the same issue the other day...all i needed to do was download the latest OS software from my service providers website (this case TMOBILe), unzipped the file and thats all she wrote...caution though i never took down the old version of my desktop manager and it took a while for it to load the upgrade...once it is installed, open DM, connect ur phone and click on app loader. if ur theme doesnt automatically populate in the list of apps avaialble, go to add and point to where u unzipped ur theme...the app loader will do the rest...hope this helps...

    you do not need to download a new OS.. as Azeis said d/l the newest version of DM... then when you unzip the theme files make sure you put them in the same place...thats all... I usually make a folder in "My Documents" titled "Themes" and put all my .zip theme files in there, so it's easy to accsess when wanting to load themes...Welcome to CB..BTW
