When will Nokia Updater be compatable with Vista?

Every since a recent update of the Updater or the firmware, the Updater gives an error message saying that it isn't compatible with Vista.

I read somewhere on this forum that this is a temporary bug but it has been going on for a little while longer than 'temporary.'

Does anyone know when this bug will be fixed? Personally i'm not so interested in the Updater for the firmware upgrade aspect but more for the back-up function.

For those who do want to use updater with Vista

You can run NSU on Vista in XP2 compatibility mode. It will update and download the latest versions of all software and then do the 15 minutes waiting white screen of death.

BUT IT WILL STILL WORK

Here's how I did it and you can to, thanks to various sources from the web cobbled together.

Once you've hit the white screen of death, use the task manager (ctrl, alt, del) to stop NSU but leave the phone USB connection in place. Restart NSU as administrator again
After a while it will tell you to disconnect the phone or remove battery, leave it connected. Click retry after it works out you were in the middle of an update, NSU will complete the update. Time remaining will stay on 15 minutes for about 5, then go to 8 & 7 quickly, then 5, 3 and then complete.

If ordinary folk on the web can produce this work around why can't MS and Nokia pull their fingers out and get it fixed?

i would advise not to try this as you might get it wrong and u would have bricked you phone and since you changed firmware from a branded one u no longer have warranty.
