Re: Windows Vista and Nokia Software Update

I had the following trouble running the installation for the nokia software updater (on win vista)...
"could not access vbscript run time for custom action"

The solution was found quickly by googling and doing this:
1) running command_prompt as administrator
2) cd %windir%\system32
3) regsvr32 vbscript.dll

Re: Windows Vista and Nokia Software Update

Try taking off the Nokia PC Suite.
Re-install the Software Updater if you want to.
Restart.
Run the Software Updater.
Using an old version of PC Suite works with it.

Re: Windows Vista and Nokia Software Update

I have tried using versio 2.1.0.0 of the updater by running it under Vista being compatible with XP SP2. I still get the message that componants are missing and I have to reinstall. I have sent my system info with product model and code.

Re: Windows Vista and Nokia Software Update

Just a note... to get this to work on Vista Business I had to find and run a program in Vista called Program Compatibility Wizard. Then it seems to work for me where the command line vbscript trick didn't.

Good luck!

Re: Windows Vista and Nokia Software Update

Try this, this was recommended to me by someone else (prodigalsa) and it worked.

 
1. Disable ICS (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Internet Connection Sharing = Disable)
2. Run NSU as Administrator...
