If you are a BlackBerry Enterprise Administrator you often manage a wide range of devices with different firmware versions so that it is very hard to rollout a software which is build for a specified OS. BUT you can create a *.alx file (in my case a sametime.alx) which can be used to install different software versions depending on the OS.

The key for this is the "_blackberryVersion" (case sensitive) you can find more infos in the BlackBerry Developer Guide but for Sametime 8.5 you can use this file here (click on read more...):
