    Win 7 RC and the Storm

    Since the release of Win 7, I have been using it on my work laptop for R&D. I use it to sync with my Storm and connect to the BES. Even the Beta worked fine for all that. The one time I tried to do an update over the weekend with it, left me running to the office on a Saturday so I could pull from my backups and re-image my phone. Now I am using the Win 7 RC and must say it is very stable. It is still syncing with my phone just fine. But I want my updates any time / anywhere.
    I don't gamble so I wanted to know if anyone else has had any success with running the Loader on a Win 7 RC machine. When I ran it on the Beta, I got to the last 'Waiting on the Device' and it froze. This is with the USB fix done that I found here on our famous BBOS site.

    So, any thoughts, comments or concerns would be greatly appreciated.

    "Un-Bricking" my phone right now from a bombed Windows 7 RC load... Wish there was a work-around that always "worked."
