  1. Tried copying & pasting at least 10 times; would NOT accept.
    Had to delete, & return to the previous version.

  2. I downloaded v7.0.0.108 but my BBM didn’t work, I tried several times re-downloading it but it never worked so I had to return to the previous version and my BBM worked again.
