    Status of Desktop Manager & Vista Compatibility Problems?

    Advertisement



    I'm porting from my prior computer running Windows XP Professional to a new laptop running Windows Vista Ultimate. I use an old BlackBerry 7100 I'm fond of. I've seen many complaints of compatibility problems with Vista. Have these problems been addressed by now, or can I still expect difficulties? Any suggestions for how to avoid any remaining issues? Your experience and expertise will be much appreciated. Thanks!

    You need to run DM 4.2 SP2 with Vista. I am an XP person, so I can't help with Vista.

    From what I've heard (I don't use Vista either) SP2 should work fine on Vista.

    I have version 4.2.1.8 dated 1/16/2007 and it works well with Vista. No problems at all that I have noticed.
