    hey guys just wrote this up on my blog, but didn't want to link to it because i know thats spamming, so ill paste it here (hopefully it will make the tips forum) and whoever wants to go to my blog can just go there themselves.
    A lot of programs wont install or run properly on windows 7 yet, and not many developers have cared since its still in beta and If youve tried to use blackberry media sync on windows 7 and failed i have found a way to work it. I was always getting an error when trying to install it. so heres a work around that should get you using the program quickly.
    1. once you have the file downloaded Extract its contents using winrar (the exe is just a zip file)
    2. press the windows button and r button on the keyboard, type in cmd without the quotes and press enter
    3. navigate to where the folder to the folder you extracted
    4. Rename the msi file to a.msi for ease of use in the next step
    4. type msiexec /a a.msi without the quotes and press enter
    5. now a window will pop up and extract the files you need just select where you want to extract them
    6. press the windows button and r button on the keyboard, then type regsvr32 path to the you extracted\BBDeviceFileAccess.dll with the quotes and everything should work now (when it asks you to download the update say cancel)
    if you are having problems let me know, im still syncing the album art as of now. ill update this post once i can gaurentee it works 100%
