As the title says. The cards didn't work with WinXP 64 but wasn't sure about the newer USB modems.

Thanks

No luck with this software. The user is running WinXP64. The computer is on a domain but the user has both local admin rights on the domain to his machine and we also gave him access to the local administrator account.

When we try to install the softare (Run As Adminstrator) it comes up after decompressing and asking for the language with an error saying Insufficient Rights to run this application (for Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003) (or something like that). I can't think what other rights apart from local administration rights to the machine he would need.

This occurs both on and off the domain.

Thanks. That means I have to look elsewhere such as the machine setup etc. Strangely it's happened on two machines now which are running XP64 so it could be a setup on the machine and how they are defined on the domain.

OK - got it installed.  But it was a hack.

Ran the setup program until it unpacked the msi. Then saved the msi to some other location.

Hacked the msi so that this startup condition


(((VersionNT=500 And ServicePackLevel>=4) Or (VersionNT=501 And ServicePackLevel>=2) Or (VersionNT>=600)) And AdminUser)

 

was removed.

WinXP version is 501 and we were running SP3 so the second test should have been okay. But I don't know what VersionNT returns for 64 bit. And the user certainly has local admin rights since he logged as administrator.  Anyway it installed and now we are just waiting for a SIM card to test it out.

Not sure it should be this hard!

Alas success was short lived. While the software installs okay, when the USB device K3715 is inserted, while Windows says it finds all the stuff (USB drive, CDROM drive, Huawei device etc.) the Mobile Connect software doesn't find the modem. The same modem and software work fine on a XP 32 bit machine so perhaps it's a driver issue?

Well just tried a E220 and that didn't work either. I guess next step is to try a XT mobile card instead.
