I upgraded to Windows 7 and since then cannot get the Blackberry software to load on my desktop so I can sync Windows  Outlook with my Curve 8530

Thank you for your suggestion. Adding to what was stated; perhaps you update your BlackBerry software. To update the BlackBerry software on your computer, visit the BlackBerry® Device Software update site. Then click check for updates and connect your BlackBerry device to your computer. On the update summary screen, select the check box beside the update that you want to install. Then add or remove optional applications, click options. select or clear the check box beside one or more applications, click next. To back up your device data or delete all device data, click settings. Select the check box beside one or more data types and click next. Also complete filling out the information on the screen to sign up for or decline email notifications. Here are some links for obtaining software  and further information.

Are you trying to load the most current version from the blackberry website (Desktop Software v6.0.1 B21)?  What type of error message are you getting when you try to load the software?  Please provide more information so we can help you.
