Windows 7: Huawei 169 USB 3g modem

16 Dec 2008   #21

 

Hmmm - weird, because I have DriverMax running in Vista x64 right now - did it fail to make a backup of the driver? Or did it fail to run?

you are able to run 32bit apps in 64 bit OS....
i dont think you ran it as admin...
try that and see if it does...
remember it does backup drivers...
meaning it needs privilege access to retrieve the drivers

But my point is I have it working and I never ran it as admin - and never received an error message....

So, I want a methodology listing so I can verify if this is a DriverMax problem or a Vista x64 problem or imply that user's bad luck....

I wasn't correcting *you* I was pointing out that it works OK here - so something ain't right over on his end, or else I ain't doing what he is doing to get the error.

Windows 7 7100 RC 1, Windows Vista 64, Windows XP, MAC OS X 10.5.5
 
 

Ok, I want to wake up this thread from the dead as I have some updates...

I tried all and everything to get the modem to work both in build6801 and 6956, but nothing worked. Last night I finally upgraded ( actually a fresh install) to build 7000. And judge my happiness as I know discover that my Huawei modem works like expected MS must have made some "behind the scenes" changes in build 7000, I don't really know what, but something has made it all to work...

I have the same problem, with a Samsung Z810 modem.
Windows 7 recognise the partition, where the drivers, but can't recognise the "modem" part.
Any help?
I've tryed DriverMAX, it isn't workin...
I'm using build 7077, but it isn't working on 7100 either.

Confirm that you've enabled "Auto Run" in the control Panel -> Hardware and Sound. I don't know why, but whenever I disable auto run my modem stops working...
