NOKIA SOFTWARE UPDATER DOESNT RUN

Nokia software uploader doesnt run in Vista Home premium.
I have a) checked that no components are already running, using task manager
b)checked that the 2 programs are allowed through the firewall
c) removed, redownloaded, and reinstalled several times
d) administrator status

but when i try to run the program it hangs, then says vital components are missing, and says i should reinstal. Ther must be a fault. Anyone else have the same problem or a solution?
N95 8gb, but this not relevant, I think.

Have you installed the latest version of PC Suite? Try doing that.

Re: NOKIA SOFTWARE UPDATER DOESNT RUN

I am trying to update my 6300. I have installed all the latest pc suite/updater etc but I keep getting 'Critical component missing' as well.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times, when it does run it won't recognise my phone!

Any further suggestions?

Whisperer
When you download and install software updator it leaves an icon at the desktop. Now if you have the latest Pc suite ( which I suggest you have ) you will see the same Nokia software updator icon when you open PC suite. Use the one shown in PC suite. It should work

Re: NOKIA SOFTWARE UPDATER DOESNT RUN

Yes, I tried it on WINXP and got another error problem. Error 1720 whatever that is. I really want to update the firmware but I don't know how I'm going to do it.

Re: NOKIA SOFTWARE UPDATER DOESNT RUN

I'm new here but following discussions closely.

I'm have the same problem with the update of my N95-1.
Tried (and tired of) reinstalling several times.
I'm using latest version of Vista on a Dell Inspiron 531 with most recent updates installed.

Up till this last firmwareversion no problem with connections whatsoever.

Tried all tips before execpt the one with the reinstallation of previous NSU versione replaced bij last one. Can't find this previous version and I am skeptical about the solution.

The only addition I can make is the installation of the PCsuite for Nseries. Bluetooth function was't perfect en deinstalled this with regular PCsuite (latest version).

I'm out of options and look forward to solution without trial and error. If everything fails trying to look for 'clean' XP machine elsewhere.

To me it looks like a bug in the NSU because of number of reports that have been posted, also on other fora.

Fenx in advance!
