    windows vista will not "see cab. files"

    I have downloaded candlelight and I do not see a cab file. I have downloaded it before and the "cab." file was there. Its weird and very frustrating.

    Do you have a data plan? If so, add it directly on the phone, from the address bar...

    thanks to the both of you for looking and for the quick reply. After doing a little bit more on this I cannot get any cab. file to be seen as a cab. file. What I mean is that I tried to download another home screen that is a cab. file. After I unzip it there is only a xml file and two other small files that windows does not recognize. I dont know. Just last month my computer was downloading cab. files and installing them fine onto the Q using windows mobile device center. Its really frustrating

    Can you try Pocket Internet explorer? Pull up the address bar, and type in the full .cab address.

    We have been told that the Candlelight application causes problems on the Q9c/m/and h. It should be used on the original Q (WM 5)
