thanks, just after i posted i think i may have found the problem.

going to add/remove programs under windows xp showed i had more then one type of firmware update ready for upload, so it would upload either of them...

i removed them both from the add/ remove programs gui and reinstalled just one of the firmwares... im booting up desktop manager now and it seems to be working... ill post again if i have any problems..

thanks for your help and time

Other than that the most common mistake is forgetting to remove the vendor.xml file.
