AFAIK NSS is not currently compatiable with Vista. It may work, but no guarantees/

NSS can be run on vista

right click on the icon > Properties > Compatibility > under Compatibility mode set it to Windows XP (SP2)

Next Settings > Check Disable visual themes

Next Privilegel Level > check Run this program as administrator

Beer Apparently..

you need a couple of things to "try" again not guaranteed to get NSS working under Vista.

The most obvious being get the latest Nokia PC Suite - since it contains drivers and software that are allegedly Vista compatible.

This ought to give you a chance of NSS at least communicating with the Phone.

Then theres running NSS itself .. people have suggested that running NSS in XP SP2 compatibility mode with Visual themes turned off is the way to go here.

Give that a try and good luck!

GuaiBoy is quite correct. NSS will work perfectly on Vista using XP compatibility mode

Hi Guys

Thanks a lot for your replies, I'm getting stuck on installing the USB driver... you know the one you need to install when you install NSS, but windows wont accept the USB driver in the NSS Driver folder.. wont work on XP either... what am I missing

you use virtual USB .. and it piggybacks the Nokia PC Suite installed driver. Hence the suggestion you make sure you have the latest - and now Vista compatible version.

So if you have The Nokia PC Suite installed and can talk to your phone in PC Suite mode .. then you ought to be able to install NSS and using the "virtual USB" device .. talk to the phone .. thats click on the magnifying glass not the "multiflash" icon.

Good luck!

Beer Ignore My Previous Advice

about getting the latest PC Suite .. THAT was the preferred method .. but the latest version is NOT compatible with NSS.

My advice is to try the version of PC Suite that came with your phone (on the CD) and ignore any attempts by the suite to self-update.

Then install NSS .. in theory you should be able to see your N95 if it is connected in PC Suite mode.
If NSS doesn't connect - check any anti-virus software you may have running and on Vista you may need XP SP2 compatibility mode, visual themes turned off and running as administrator.
If you are on Vista x64 you may be SOL. (Like to hear if people are successful with NSS and Vista x64)

.. righty .. once NSS is running ..
Ensure you click on the Magnifying Glass (ie Use virtual USB) no the other icon in NSS.

Then Click "Phone Info" .. scan .. should show your phone's relevant infomation.

To Change the code ..
Ensure you have checked the Enable box against Product Code
put in an appropriate code for your device -

MAKE sure its the same model - don't go mixing these around thinking you're going to get new/additional features.
Firmware is Model specific and trying another model's code won't work.

No you can't use a Euro or APAC code on the North American Models .. don't even try.
In fact if you have a NAM you shouldn't bother reading this thread.
