I am having a problem getting desktop to recognize the USB port after installing 4.1.9 on a VISTA machine.

That worked for me with Vista and Outlook 2003. Haven't tried with Outlook 2007 yet.

Has anyone gotten this to work with the 64 bit version of Vista? I'm running Vista x64 and although the desktop is running it is not recognizing my 8703e, and VIsta says it cannot find drivers.

Ugh... well, found the answer:

BlackBerry Desktop Manager is not supported on Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows for 64-bit platforms.
Considering that most new computers are 64-bit machines and 64-bit OSes have been around for a while now, you'd think there'd be support for this by now...
