Default BES Manager and Vista

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone find a work around for this (other than logging into the BES and launching)? I cannot get Blackberry Manager to install on my Vista Business machine.

I apologize if this is a double post as I have searched and searched to see if it was already posted and cant find it (although I know I saw it once).

The BlackBerry Manager is only supported on BES 4.1 SP5 or above. I haven't personally tested this...

in my office we published BES manager in a citrix environment and that gets us around it... you could try virtual pc or some other type of vm solution that would solve it also.
