Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

Hi!

I have Windows VISTA Ultimate and NSU and I havn't got any problem with this software. In fact, I thing taht you must reinstal it and be sure that when you instal this your phone must be disconnecded from the PC.

Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

Hi, I must agree with you. It happened the same to me with Vista 32. The program at first didn't even started. Then, after deleting 2 processes (you easily find them because they are named something like Nokia software updated..)the program started but it was hanging for ever searching the phone. I the moved to another PC with XP and it worked without problems.
Ciao

Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

Hi. I have Vista Ultimate and no problems with this soft.
You can install this soft with the option "Run as admin"?
When the soft is installed, the fireware advise you for -Unlook the connection with Nokia Center.
I love Nokia N73

Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

I am having the exact same issues in Vista Business 32bit ed. It worked with the old version of software updater, but since updating it and Nokia PC suite (which wasn't very easy) it now just wont work at all. It freezes when the loading screen comes up. I am running it as admin and have tried many uninstalls/re-installs.

Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

I just did an uninstall followed by a restart and then a reinstall followed by a restart. Still the same problem. If I leave it for long enough then the program wakers up and says 'Network connection lost. Check your network connection or whether a firewall is preventing the application from working properly.' This is with all of my firewalls off and a solid internet connection when running the program as admin. Im going to try logging on as admin to see if this makes any difference now.

Hi snuffeltje

Interestingly if you look at "N" series PC Suite released with N76 it says NSU v1.3.40 not offered for installation with Vista!

Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

i have the same problem with vista ultimate 32, i downloaded the latest version of NSU and it doesnt find the phone and keeps on timing out...

 

nokia should stop making softwares cause they really need to pay to someone to do it for them...

 

all software has been re installed and installed again and still no luck....

 

it used to work a couple of times before but again it decided it doesnt wanna try to find my device and connect to it...

 

the funny thing is that ovi suit does find it and connects to it...

 

trying to update my bloody nokia N97 which was nokias most evil phone keeps on freezing. replaced 5 phones through warranty and they all have the same problem....I guess Nokia N97 was a scam!

Re: software updater not working in vista ultimate

Ovi suite works wonders on my Vista Ultimate 32 bit. You could try that.
