Default Vista x64 does not see the modem

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I had my 8800 running as a modem on my laptop on Windows XP. Now I am running Vista x64 (64 Bit), and it just doesn't see the modem.

I have the very latest desktop software installed (downloaded from their website). I connect my BB, run the Manager, go to Control Panel > Modems to set it up, and it only sees the modem built into my laptop and not the BB modem.

I tried adding the modem, but it cannot find it. I checked Device Manager and the modem is just not there.

I checked the BB website and I cannot see any software specific for Vista of vista x64.

Can anyone help of suggest what to try?

Which DM version? I had issues with 4.2 SP2 on Vista getting the modem connection working, installed DM 4.5 and and worked. Granted it was 32-bit not 64-bit.
