Blank Blackberry Desktop Manager

Being a BlackBerry fan from way back, my main phone is a relatively old-tech BlackBerry Bold 9930. So I use BlackBerry Desktop Manager (BDM). BDM works fine on my home computer. But on my work computer, when BDM loads, its client area is blank … as in transparent.

BDM did load. I could see and interact with the minimize, maximize/restore and close buttons. But with a transparent client area, BDM was unusable.

Checking with Mr. Google, I am not alone. Especially with fellow users of the 64 bit version of Windows 7.

The good news from a Google search is that you get a lot of information. The bad news from a Google search is that you get a lot of information. The advice ran the gamut. Uninstall and reinstall. Install in compatibility mode. Run in compatibility mode. Clean the registry.

Since it is a display problem, I check my display adapters in Device Manager.  Two were from Air Display. Disabled those adapters. BDM loaded properly. Mission accomplished!

In case any of you encounter this issue, hope this helps.
