To permit users to update the BlackBerry® Device Software at computers that host the BlackBerry® Desktop Software, you can
make the BlackBerry Device Software installation file available and instruct users to update the BlackBerry Device Software using
the application loader tool that is installed with the BlackBerry Desktop Software. After the update process completes, the
application loader tool connects to the messaging server to provision the BlackBerry devices.
This update option applies only if users have installed BlackBerry Desktop Software version 4.1 or later on their computers.
Advantages of this update process include:
•
You can automate the BlackBerry Device Software upgrade process so that users do not have to complete update tasks for
BlackBerry devices that they connect to their computers using a USB connection.
•
You can update BlackBerry devices remotely.
Disadvantages of this update process include:
•
Users' computers must have the BlackBerry Desktop Software installed.
•
You cannot use software configurations to manage BlackBerry Device Software updates.
•
You cannot require that users update the BlackBerry Device Software.
•
This update process increases traffic to the computer that hosts the shared network folder.
Send the BlackBerry Desktop Software installation file to users
You can send the BlackBerry® Desktop Software installation file to users so that they can install the BlackBerry Desktop Software
and use it to synchronize organizer data items and manage message forwarding on their computers.
If users require the S/MIME Support Package for BlackBerry® devices to synchronize certificates and private keys, you can send
them the BlackBerry Desktop Software so that they can install the certificate synchronization tool.

message that specifies the location of the installation file in the shared network folder and one of the following installation
types:
• for the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager only: \\<shared_network_folder>\setup.exe /s
• for the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and certificate synchronization tool of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager: \
\<shared_network_folder>\setup.exe /s /v "INSTALLLEVEL=125"

BlackBerry device memory requirements for BlackBerry Device Software
updates over the wireless network
The BlackBerry® device must have 16 MB of RAM and at least 64 MB of flash memory available to start and complete a BlackBerry®
Device Software update over the wireless network.
If the amount of available flash memory on the BlackBerry device decreases to less than 400 KB, the BlackBerry device runs the
LMM automatically to identify and delete unreferenced and cached data associated with BlackBerry device applications such as
the message list, organizer data, and data for third-party applications.
If the update process requires more memory, the LMM deletes medium-priority items such as very old email messages and outof-date calendar entries.
If the minimum amount of memory required is still not available, the BlackBerry device user must delete items manually.
Battery power requirements for BlackBerry Device Software updates over
the wireless network
The battery power level on a BlackBerry® device must be 50 percent or greater for the BlackBerry device to retrieve update

Desktop Software to users' computers
7
You can use third-party applications to create a single executable file that contains the BlackBerry® Desktop Software and
BlackBerry® Device Software, and send the executable file to the computers of the users in your organization. The executable
file uses the application loader tool on the computer to update the BlackBerry Device Software on BlackBerry devices.
You can use this update option if you update from BlackBerry Device Software version 3.5 or earlier.
Advantages of this update process include:
•
You can install the BlackBerry Device Software and BlackBerry Desktop Software on computers automatically.
•
You can set an IT policy to require that users update the BlackBerry Device Software.
A disadvantage of this update process is that you must distribute large update packages over your organization's LAN.
The executable file installs the BlackBerry Desktop Software and BlackBerry Device Software on the computers of users in your
organization. To update the BlackBerry Device Software on BlackBerry devices, users can connect their BlackBerry devices to
their computers and start the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.
Create a shared network folder to access the BlackBerry Device Software
You can create a shared network folder on the computer where the BlackBerry® Device Software is installed so that BlackBerry
device users and the BlackBerry Administration Service can access the BlackBerry Device Software. The shared network folder
that you create for the BlackBerry Device Software cannot be the same shared network folder that you create for applications.
1. On the computer where the BlackBerry Device Software is installed, navigate to <drive>:\Program Files\Common Files
\Research In Motion.
2. Share the folder with write permissions for the account that is running the BlackBerry Administration Service - Application
Server service.
3. To decrease bandwidth over your organization's LAN, verify that the shared network folder is located in close proximity to
users' computers.
After you finish: Verify that the AppLoader subfolder is writable.
Save the BlackBerry Device Software installation file to the network drive
Before you begin: Obtain the BlackBerry® Device Software installation files from your organization's service provider.

At the bottom of setup.ini, type [INSTALL_OPTIONS].
To add the installation settings, use install.txt, which is included with the BlackBerry Desktop Software installation files.
Save setup.ini.
Send the installation files for the BlackBerry Desktop Software and
BlackBerry Device Software to users using a third-party application
You can update the BlackBerry® Desktop Software and BlackBerry® Desktop Manager by pushing the software to users' computers
using a third-party application.
1. If your organization's environment includes BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Microsoft® Exchange, to record the customized
settings in the BlackBerry Desktop Software installation files so that you can create a custom software package, at a command
prompt, type one of the following commands:
• For BlackBerry Desktop Manager users, type \\<shared computer name>\setup.exe /s
• For BlackBerry Desktop Manager users who also use the certificate synchronization tool, type \\<shared computer
name>\setup.exe /s /v "INSTALLLEVEL=125"

If your organizaton's environment includesBlackBerry® Enterprise Server for IBM® Lotus® Domino® or BlackBerry®
Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise®, to record the customized settings in the BlackBerry Desktop Software installation
files so that you can create a custom software package, at a command prompt, type \\<shared computer name>
\setup.exe /s.
Package the customized installation files for the BlackBerry Desktop Software and BlackBerry® Device Software using a
third-party application for software packaging.
Send the installation files using a third-party application for software distribution.
After you finish: To make sure that users update the BlackBerry Device Software, set the Force Load Count IT policy rule and
the Force Load Message IT policy rule. For more information, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Policy Reference Guide.
