Unhappy Nokia site and Vista........

They have stopped supporting PC's which are running Vista :( What's that all about, I can't upgrade my firmware :( Boooo!!!

Is there a reason does anyone know? Have they just stopped it while they update some stuff?

Cheers

Mikey

Yeah it's only temporary, as the NSU website says...

Quote:
Support for Microsoft Vista has temporarily been removed from the Nokia Software Updater. This is due to recent changes in certain Microsoft Vista configurations that cause the Nokia Software Updater to become unstable. Other Microsoft Operating Systems are not affected. Support will be reintroduced as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Wink

Cheers dude, it's just that the disclaimer looked a bit "corporate" and it was posted on the 8th May. Wondered if anyone had a more uptodate take on it

The only thing is that is has been that way for at least two weeks now. So this "temporary" matter feels like a long time already. Will we have to wait two weeks more or a month? Nobody knows.

OTOH, you can easily run the program in XP SP2 mode in Vista if you change the preferences for that app.
