Windows 7: Unable to install WMDC / connect Windows Mobile device

Unable to install WMDC / connect Windows Mobile device

Hello, I moved to Windows 7 x64 Enterprise.

I need to connect Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices in order to debug compact framework application on them.

Up to two days ago everything worked fine if I connected a mobile device; then everything stopped to work.

If I plug the device I gen this error: "Windows Mobile-based Device: Failed"

Of course I unistalled WMDC, re-dowloaded the 64 bit version from, rebooted the machine, reinstalled. Same error.

On a second pc of mine everything is fine.

Hint: I downloaded and installed Virtual PC 2007 SP1 x64 in order to connect to an external machine from the Device Emulator of Visual Studio 2008.

Can anyone help me?

Best regards
