It has been working just fine for me under Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit Release Candidate. I've used it to upgrade the OS on my Storm several times.

I've had the Release To Manufacturing sitting on my desk for over a month, but haven't had time to upgrade yet. But, since it works with the RC, I can't imagine that it would not work with the final release.

I think it would be appropriate to mention WHICH version of Desktop Manager you are using.

Using Help / About within Desktop Manager, exactly which version of Desktop Manager are people running.

Windows 7 was officially released yesterday, although the RTM has been out for over a month.

It is different than the Release Candidate. It would be helpful to people to have good information.

I'm running Desktop Manager 5.0.0.11 on Windows 7 Home Premium x64 RETAIL
with no problems so far.
Installed fine, connected via bluetooth fine, recognises usb connection, and all functions appear fine so far.

I downloaded desktop manager for the BB web site this morning to install on Windows 7, 32 bit. It downloaded ok, asked me for my language setting, and then nothing happened. zip

I rebooted, tried again. same. downloaded it again and had same results.

I had vista running with DM, all was good. After the inplace upgrade to Windows 7, I thought I'd be bright and re-install desktop manager. I removed it first, can't install it now, so I'm left with nothing

Any ideas?

Try installing it in the XP VM in 7. Just a thought.
