Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

When will the web install links update, Because Windows 7 Users can not install the old version and then update it.

 

Windows 7 Users need Fresh install file to download and install on the system.

Hmmm, I am only able to locate v1.8.10.40008 and not 2.4.1. Any advice which country's Nokia site is having this v2.4.1? I tried Asia and UK site.

Yes Still the download links are not updated. Still all are downloading 1.8, But for user of WinXp its ok. It will get update to new one. But for Windows 7 users its not possible. 1.8 Version does not get installed on Win 7.

 

Needs to update all the download link & update the site ASAP.

 

Nokia Software Updater release 2.4.1 for Win 7 users need the fresh download to install.

Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

It's easy, just run the version you can't run and you'll get the option to install the version you can run. It helps if you lift yourself up by your bootstraps and clap with one hand, provided that you don't hear a tree falling in the woods. Just make sure you're not hearing a tree not falling in the woods.

Help I'm trapped in a sig factory.

I've tried that and i don't get offered the new version, infact i don't get offered any updates at all, the only version available to me is 1.8.10 which i downloaded from Nokia europe and also Nokia UK, my firewall isn't blocking anything either, so, where do i get the new 2.4.1 Windows 7 version?

Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

I contacted Nokia support about this supposed new version of NSU quoting xbungles original post asking where it could be downloaded from and the response I got after a 4 day wait was quite amazing:-

 

I was asked to provide my IMEI/serial no so they could inform me what software was available for my phone!!!!

 

They seemed to completely disregard my question so what is the point of customer support?

 

Needless to say I was more than a little miffed.

Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

I updated my phone over the weekend. I use Nokia PC Suite and it immediately told me there is a newer version and offerd to download and install it. When I ran the NSU, it did not find any newer version and 1.8 continues to be the latest.
If I have helped you with your problem in some way, please take a little time and hit the kudos button in my post. Without your feedback, I don't know if I am being helpful or should just be put out to pasture. :smileyhappy:

Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

I have just downloaded and older version of NSU and treid updating, gues what, the update version that gets downloaded is 1.8.10 and the file name is > "NokiaSoftwareUpdaterSetup_1.8.10EN.exe" which is incompatible with Windows 7, the file that we need is "NokiaSoftwareUpdaterSetup_2.4.1EN.exe" so, if anyone on here has succesfully updated to version 2.4.1 would you be so kind as to check your Windows temp folder > "C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Temp" to see if the file "NokiaSoftwareUpdaterSetup_2.4.1EN.exe" is in one of the temp folders, if it is could you PLEASE upload it to somewhere so we can download it.

 

Thanks!

:smileyhappy:) Hahaha thanks man, I needed that laugh!  I think it's also hilarious how a Nokia employee comes on here and says "Software update XXX is now available."  We all reply, "no it isn't."  And there is absolutely NO acknowledgement of this from the source.  Great customer service!

Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

Well, apparently, someone else in the forum mentioned that the v2.4.1 was pulled from public release because of bug with USB found.

Re: Nokia Software Updater 2.4.1

Yes its true, Version 2.4.1 had a major bug in Windows 7 it had issue with USB (only in Win 7). So it was not was released for public.

 

Version 2.4.1 works very well in Windows XP, But not in Win 7.

 

Version 2.4.2 is been tested, will be released once all the test process is completed successfully.

 

All Windows 7 users have to wait for some more time.
