CompanionLink and BlackBerry Desktop Software 6

Last week, RIM released the new Version 6 of their BlackBerry Desktop Software, used to synchronize BlackBerry devices via a USB cable with Compatible PC software. CompanionLink extends support to many other PC applications by functioning as an add-in within the BlackBerry Desktop software. The problem is that upon release of Blackberry Desktop Software 6, all 3rd party add-in support was seemingly non-existent. Many users reported problems with a wide variety of add-ins, not just CompanionLink. The problem was further aggravated by the fact that uninstalling version 6 and reverting back to (stable) version 5 still left add-in support broken.

We have been working tirelessly since the release of the Blackberry Desktop Software 6 find a fix for the many users who depend on CompanionLink to sync their PC data to their BlackBerry devices. Our development team deserves a high-five for their tenacity, as we are proud to announce the immediate availability of the CompanionLink 4 BETA (build 4007) with support for BlackBerry Desktop Software 6.
