Windows 7: AT&T 3G card software won't install in 6956

AT&T 3G card software won't install in 6956

The Dell Mobile Broadband Card software installs and works fine in Windows 7 v.6801 64-bit but will not install in 6956 (32-bit). It gets most of the way through and then rolls back to nothing. The Compatibility Troubleshooter didn't help no matter what combination I tried. Besides 6801, I have successfully used the same software in XP Pro x86, XP Pro x64, Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit.
I read somewhere that IE8 might be the culprit so I vLited the 6956 without IE8 but it still will not install.
Any ideas??? Thanks.

Tom

Are there any error messages, log files or screenshots you might be able to provide?

You might also try DriverMax. Read about it at DriverMax - free driver updates and get it at http://small.drivermax.com/soft/dmx/drivermax.exe. It has a function that will allow you to backup the drivers installed on either Vista or maybe even 6801 and restore them onto 6956. It's free and comes highly recommended by many folks on this board.

Here's a shot of what is reported after the installation fails.
Tomorrow, I'm going to try Drivermax on a 32-bit Vista installation I have. I'll post what I learn. I think this is going to be a big issue with all the 3G cards going into laptops these days. Thanks for the ideas!

ok...
as for 3g cards...
there is not that big of a movement...
3g has recently been made for the consumer market
just wait until the beta or the RTM...
im pretty sure it they will have support...

edit are you running from a cd or from online driver???

I just tried an "earlier" version of the Dell software and it works! I agree, though, that later versions of W7 will most likely provide support for the "newer" software.
