    anyone else figure this out? It dl's the file, extracts it, then.... nothing happens and it doesn't show as installed.

    I just did a fresh install of Desktop Manager (5.0?) from the disc.

    Did you try compatibility mode?

    I don't have that option. It adds Media Manager right from the Blackberry applicatin's interface.

    not sure if this would apply here but when installing/opening new programs on x64, the directions stated that you had to make sure you accessed the program as the administrator. It was a while ago so I don't remember exactly how to choose that option. Hope that might lead you in some sort of positive direction.

    No go on Windows Vista x64 for me =/

    As sad as it is though I built another computer with windows XP on it just for issues like this where things wont run on a 64bit platform.

    Well, ain't that a kick in the balls. Oh well, guess I'll just have to use my desktop instead of my laptop.

    Hey, "run as administrator" appeared to work.

    I've also had another recurring error (Error 1327) which is because my Document folders (pictures, docs music, etc.) are on an external NAS device. Figured that one out too using these directions :

    Hey, I have also struggled with this error. There is a perfectly
    logical explanation, and I am at a loss why Microsoft doesn't have a
    better error message, at least pointing to a TechNet article.

    It would seem that when you go into the elevated security mode during
    installation, all your shares are lost! The reason being that you are
    now "Administrator" and the shares are user specific. Makes sense in
    theory but is mucho annoying in practice.

    So here's how you solve it:
    1. Disconnect the previously mapped network drive from Windows
    Explorer.
    2. Right click on Command Prompt in the Start Menu and selected Run
    As Administrator.
    3. Typ "Net Use y: \\servername\sharename"
    4. Exit out of the command prompt
    5. Open Windows Explorer
    6. Click 'Map network drive' menu item
    7. Select the y: drive and typed \\servername\sharename into the
    Folder box.

    Not very intuitive, but it works!

    EASIER WAY: If you already have a mapped network drive, just do steps
    2-4 and it should work...essentially you map it once for the user,
    once for the administrator. (can't we all just share stuff and get
    along?)
