BlackBerry Install Error: No additional applications designed for your device found!


No additional applications designed for your device found!

The screen shot above might be familiar to you if you have a new device (e.g. a new Curve, Pearl or 88xx) and want to install a third party application. Well, I know the application works on my device because I saw it on the same model already. An OTA download URL would work to install this application but I don’t want OTA as I got the BlackBerry Desktop Software here. That’s what the software is for: installing application (and other stuff as well of course).

The version of the desktop software seems to be quite new:


BlackBerry Desktop Software Version

Anyway, I figured out that there is a new version available from my provider (HK CSL) already. So I downloaded the most recent version of the BlackBerry Desktop Software (which has version 4.3 now) and the installation works fine. A list of a lot of providers that have customized BlackBerry software can be found here: The BlackBerry provider software download list.

So this is how to solve this issue. It has been mentioned alread at the complete howto for installing third party applications to a BlackBerry device: Install Applications (Windows).

  1. [...] First, make sure the .alx file and the .cod file are in the same directory. The Application Loader uses both files to install to your BlackBerry. If that isn’t the problem, then upgrading the Desktop Manager might help. You can download the latest version from your carrier or directly from RIM: http://www.blackberry.com/support.
