How to update BlackBerry Desktop Manager software for Windows PC

I thought it would be nice to blog about BlackBerry Desktop Manager software for Windows PC since many BlackBerry users in possession of an OS5/OS6/OS7 device will either decide to keep, or sell their smartphone device using various methods in order to purchase their dream @BlackBerry 10 Z10 or Q10 super-phone in the near future.

When I sold my BlackBerry Bold 9900 OS7 device last Friday, I immediately backed my device using BlackBerry Desktop Manager software for PC

By now, most of us should have the latest version of Desktop Manager, but in case you don’t, no worries!

You start up BB Desktop Manager, and you may be prompted with an image just like this one below, showing update version 7.1.0.37 [Bundle 39]

You have the choice to Skip Update (I wouldn’t do that) Get The Update (I would definitely do that) or Update Later (just don’t forget).

So you decide to Get The Update (smart move)  as you can see below, it has commenced downloading the 110MB update.

Some users will receive the update in a matter of 2-3 minutes, some may take up to 10 minutes, or even more depending on your ISP provider’s   plan.

Once it has successfully completed downloading the 110MB update on your Windows 7 or 8 PC, you shall be prompted with a screen below to Close the BlackBerry Desktop Software to complete the installation.

This may take up to 5 minutes, perhaps a little longer, depending on your Windows PC hardware setup.
