Blackberry 8800 Desktop Client Installation for Microsoft Vista 64-bit (x64)

As I continue to bring my new machine up to speed and meet the various needs, I recently installed Cingular’s build of RIM’s Blackberry Desktop Manager for the Blackberry 8800. The only need that I have to connect my Blackberry 8800 cell phone to my computer at home in addition to my work machine it to be able to charge off of a USB 2.0 cable. Unfortunately, I have not been able to locate a stand alone USB charger driver for the Blackberry. So, I was forced to install the entire Blackberry Desktop Manager software.

The installation process on Microsoft Vista was smooth. No warnings about incompatibilities or any other error messages. The only problem I encountered is that initially when I plugged my Blackberry in, I received a message that the power from the USB port was not sufficient to charge my device. What made that a little confusing was that the battery icon showed that it was connected and charging, which is not the usual behavior. However, after a reboot – everything seemed to work fine!

Here are the step by step instructions:
