Windows 7: Blackberry users?

Blackberry users?

Has anybody had any issues syncing and/or updating your Blackberry OS under Windows 7? I'm thinking about putting 7 on my (old) laptop but I thought I had read something on crackberry.com that said that Windows 7 and Blackberry Desktop Manager didn't play well together. So, who's running Windows 7 and a Blackberry? Which version of Desktop Manager are you using?

Thanks.

Windows7 with BB Desktop 4.7 and a Bold. Works fine for all normal things like synchronization. The only problem I've run into is updating the operating system on my Bold. Had to do it on a WindowsXP machine. I read it had to do with the USB driver in Windows7.

Mine doesn't work at all. I just installed DM 4.7 and it doesn't recognize my Curve 8900 when I plug it USB Don't know why!

BB 8310 Curve here and the DM works fine, not a single issue. USB'd my BB and the drivers installed automatically from Windows Update. Works like a charm.

TiFa,
Did you try another USB port? Maybe you have one that's gone bad? Since I started this thread, I've used 7 to update, backup, and sync both my Pearl and Storm. No problems with either one.

I still have problems

I have a Blackberry Tour which worked fine with Vista but no go on Windows 7 (64bit). I've tried the latest version of Desktop Manager and dropped back to 5.0 and 4.7. No go.
Oddly I had a similar problem with ColorMunki (a device that calibrates your monitors color). A friend suggested running it in compatibility mode and it now works fine. But it doesn't help the Blackberry.

Blackberry & Windows 7 Professional

I've just finished upgrading from XP to Windows 7 via Vista business. I upgraded my BB Desktop Manager to version 5.0.1.18 (Aug 21, 2009). Blackberry Bold & Windows 7 are working and playing well with each other now, but I did uninstall & reinstall DTM using RevoUninstaller to be sure the registry keys were cleaned out.

Because I did not do a clean install of Windows 7, I ended up with pretty severe permissions issues, but after spending alot of time manually giving myself rights to my files and folders things ran well. I originally forgot to configure synchronization in DTM and couldn't get synchronization between Outlook & Blackberry to work, but that was my own fault for not reading the instructions again.

FYI, I've attached the version information of all the components installed on my PC.
