Took me forever to figure this out...

We have about 80 PCs that uses BlackBerry Desktop Software in conjuction with BlackBerry Simulators, but I could not get it to load under Limited User credentials.  The splash screen would come up and then just disappear. There was still rim*.exe's running in the background but no other window would load.

After sifting through 1400+ lines in Process Monitor (filtered for Access Denied and Rim*)...and playing with different configurations...I found out that the answer was indeed very simple:

A "Limited User" requires the "My Videos" Folder in MyDocs...even if they can't write to it. It just has to exist.

 

This was tested with BlackBerry Desktop Software v7.1.0.

Note

Extract 700_b060_multilanguage.exe with 7-zip to get the msi and language mst's.

Modify msi (did not use custom mst) as follows to prevent  error "Use Setup.exe instead of msi":

Add Property  ISSETUPDRIVEN = 1  
Modify the Install UI Condition of Custom Action RIM_MSIUsedForInstall.                                                            

Modify Install UI Condition and Exec Condition of Custom Action CRIM_ShowCPPRedistInstallationError. 
Use appropiate language.mst as transform for the modified msi.

  • You state to modify the Install UI Condition of Custom Actions but you do not state what you modify or what you modify them to.  Please clarify.
