    I have a older Windows 98se computer that might be useful for device support, if I can get it connected.

    Desktop Manager v4.2-v.45 will not install, they are looking for a minimum Windows 2000/ME system.

    Desktop Manager v4.1 has installed, but I have not been able to establish a USB connection.

    BlackBerrys USB and Modem drivers refused to install, same minimum system requirements.

    Auto-detect does see the BlackBerry, but there is no native USB driver.

    Does anybody have access to the older USB support files?

    So far, I am out of luck...

    Thank you, after reading the disclaimer:

    Note: BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.1 works with RIM 850, RIM 857, RIM 950, RIM 957, BlackBerry 5790, BlackBerry 5800 Series, BlackBerry 6200 Series, BlackBerry 6510, BlackBerry 6700 Series, BlackBerry 7100 Series, BlackBerry 7200 Series, BlackBerry 7500 Series, BlackBerry 7700 Series and BlackBerry 8700 Series devices. Check with your service provider for the software version you should use with your BlackBerry device.
    I realized this is hopeless, the lastest supported device is the 8700.

    None of the consumer products are supported.

    RIP Win98, I guess it's time for the XP upgrade after all.
