Installing Sprint Smartview on Windows Vista --Dell laptop
Smartview is supposed to work with Vista. Did you right-click on the install file and run as administrator?
If you can not get it to work there is a work around.
First, download and install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software. After installation, plug in your BlackBerry and start
up the software for the first time. Open the Options -> Connection
Settings… window and set the connection to USB. Plug in the BlackBerry,
enter your password if applicable, and Vista will find the device and
install a “standard modem”.
Open the Control Panel
Network and Internet
Connect to a network
Set up a connection or network
Set up a dial-up connection
Select Standard Modem
Dial-up phone number is #777
Everything should work, some have reported faster speeds using this method over the Smartview program.
