Please Wait While Windows Configures OVIMPlatform

[ Edited ]

Hello and happy New Year to everyone. My problem as you read in the subject is common. Can someone tell me exactly what to do to remove this thing? I cannot install/uninstall anything.

Re: Please Wait While Windows Configures OVIMPlatform

I had the same problem on my Windows 7 64Bit computer.


There is a hidden folder, C:\ProgramData\Nokia\ which contains the source install and uninstall files for the Ovi Suite.


I wasn't sure at first so I just deleted the whole Nokia folder and the problem was no more. I was able to unistall Ovi Suite with "MyUninstaller" which i found on a Hiren's BootCD.


You can then download and install a new one from the Nokia website. I haven't done that yet, but hopefully I should be alright. I had the older version of Ovi Suite.


Hope it helps... Good luck.

Re: Please Wait While Windows Configures OVIMPlatform

I purchased a Nokia N8 instead of a Windows platform phone.  But now I also have the same issue with this darn OVIMPlatform.


I used the "delete folder" suggestion but now I cannot remove the rest of OVI from my computer.


Should have known after all the issues I had with the last Nokia Communicator and very, very little support from Nokia that their software and phones are not of the quality or calibre they use to be.  That's what they get for starting to outsource production to CHINA.  VERY, VERY poor support from Nokia.


The N8 is definitely going back to Rogers and be exchanged for a Samsung Focus.


Nokia has known about this problem since August of 2010 and has not posted any fixes at all!  Pretty darn shabby. 


Sorry Nokia, you have just lost another customer!
