Hi sanjeevkmrs,

Start a Command Prompt from your PC and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\Apploader and run loader.exe (it may be in Program Files (x86) on a 64-bit machine). This bypasses the Desktop Manager and allows you to directly install the new firmware. If the firmware doesn't appear available, make sure you have installed the software that you have downloaded. It should appear in your Control Panel under Add/Remove Programs.

Hope this helps,

Mike

Hi sanjeevkmrs,

When you run the loader.exe, it should list the Applications currently installed on the handset. At the top of the list should be the BlackBerry Core. Does this still say 4.6? If so, complete the following steps:

Closee the Loader.exe program.

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader

Delete the file 'Vendor.xml'.

Start Loader.exe from the Command Prompt again.

Try the process again.

Let me know how you get on,

Mike

Complete both of the following tasks to update the device.xml and vendor.xml file:

To download the updated device.xml and vendor.xml files, complete the following steps:

1.      Right-click the link for each of the following websites and select Save Target As or Save Link As.

https://www.blackberry.com/Desktop/Download/XML/Device.xml

https://www.blackberry.com/Desktop/Download/XML/Vendor.xml

2.      Save the files to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader.

BB Desktop Manager should now recognize the upgrade for your phone.

Hi sanjeevkmrs,

Which mobile network is the device registered to? This makes a difference when choosing the handheld software version.

Alternatively, you can browse them from here:

Mike

Mine or MikeTheRelic's solutions should work for you- I have seen this issue many many times (I'm a BES admin 8+ years) and it always has worked for me.

In the case it is not working for you, I would try uninstalling/reinstalling everything Blackberry related on your desktop and trying again.
