    Here is another way I found to do the installation.

    I tried a couple of times on both of my Tours and, of course, it didn't work with the regular method. So, then I found this method that someone else posted and worked perfectly. Give it a shot.

    METHOD:

    I used the download for the 9630, unzipped and moved all the ,cod files to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader\9630-v4.7.1.40_P3.4.0.41\Java

    Some files already in the Java folder had the same name so I allowed it to replace the old with the new.

    Then I moved the .alx file to C:\Program Files(X86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\
    Loader\9630-v4.7.1.40_P3.4.0.41

    Then I opened the DM and opened the application loader, it showed an upgrade for BBM to 5.0, I clicked next and it installed and after the reboot it was up and running.

    The icon appears in custom themes and default themes.

    Note that the Program Files (x86) is for Vista, for XP it's just Program Files
