    Windows 7 and Desktop Manager

    I remember back when the Windows 7 beta came out there was issues with the way it handled USB devices. Thus installing an OS onto a device using Windows 7 was disastrous.

    Now that the RC of Windows 7 is out, does anyone know if it is possible to install an OS?

    I’m pretty sure this was fixed with RC let me look it up

    from what I read every else seems like its working fine sense RC came maybe even before that. I know this was an issue a while back but I’m pretty sure it's fixed.

    Here is some information from the BlackBerry Forums:

    It still might be a little buggy though being's Windows 7 isn't live yet and RIM hasn't added to the Requirment part just yet

    Hardware Requirements


    • Intel® compatible 486 or higher computer that is compliant with USB 1.1 or higher and has an available USB port
    • Microsoft® Windows® 2000, Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista™

    I run RC on my desktop and have not had the issue. I did not have to do the fix for this one. I did have to do it on the beta version though

    Im running 4.5, I just like that one the best. It has the least amount of problems for me. But I also spend aboutn 90% of my time on my laptop.
