    be sure to install desktop manager 4.2 and when doing so right click the install file and select install as Admin. It should work just fine. If your using the latest release of vista.
    Even if your profile gives you permissions be sure to only install within the Admin profile. It's disabled by default and you must enable that hidden profile or install as Admin.

    What brand of computer system are you running this on? Just curious because a few people have had the issue and they had the same pc.

    Thumbs up Re: Windows vista problems finding usb

    I found it! I believe I found the solution to this USB/Vista/BB connections! I read somewhere that you need to plug the BlackBerry into your machine and then run Windows update.... well, it worked! I plugged the BB into the USB, then when I ran Windows Update it found an "optional" RIM update! It wouldn't find the update, but with the BB plugged in it did!

    Hope this solves ALL of these problems! (Though now I have to figure out Bluetooth and VZAccess/dial-up)

    Re: Windows vista problems finding usb

    i was having the same problem on vista in order to fix it i had to right click on your My Computer icon and select properties, then go to device manager icon and select Universal Serial Bus Controllers and if your BB is connected you should see a "!" on the BB link so right click it and select update driver online, wait a bit and it should update the driver....
    hope it works!
    i found this solution while searchin online so the credit goes to whoever suggested it! (sorry i dont remember
    anyways let me know if this worked out
    take it ezzzzzzz

    Re: Windows vista problems finding usb

    This is a pretty major freaking problem I see and I am also the newest victim.

    I bought a USB Bluetooth 2.0 dongle from Fry's for $15 though, I kinda expected something like this.

    I just went through 30 mins of uninstalls, reinstalls, and reboots and safe mode command prompts, and transferring files list to my bb over email and I bet nobody knows what I'm talking about. I just did what I thought would be the answer but it didn't work for me. I bet it will work for some of you guys, give it a try. I found it by Google so it must be safe, lol. http://www.telusplanet.net/public/wladykad/

    SO IS THERE A RECOMMENDED USB DONGLE FOR VISTA OR WHAT?
