Don't download via the US because it looks like the whole of the United States are downloading Windows Vista RC1 at the moment because it the download said it would take 5hrs to download. :laugh:

Download via Europe it's faster. 32mins left to complete.:lick:

1238.4 KB/sec speed... Although I do have a 10MB connection which makes a difference.

26mins left and counting, another disk to burn.

Yeah I was really impressed with the changes they have made.

15mins left... I'm wetting myself with antisipation (not really I just wanted to say that) :nervous:

Looks like it's going to be another late night again, and the misses will not be happy...? Yeah whatever...

Has anyone had any luck getting the new Windows Mobile Center to open? I connect my WM5 device, it says it connects but the Center never opens up. I go to the Control Panel and try to launch it from there and I get nothing.

Just now installing it. I burned a copy to DVD and apparently the burn was bad because it couldnt copy all files over.. so I am installing over the network via a shared virtual drive. Quicker than I imagined.

My installation on a P4 3.0, 1GB RAM, 80GB HDD was very quick. I did away with the Windows XP/Virtual PC setup.

I had the same problem I now have three disks with Pre-RC1 and one RC1 :smoker: never mind, I have never managed to use a complete box of DVD's without making a complete mess of one or two of them. :yowch:

SPEEP.... NEED SLEEP... :sleeping: :sleeping: :sleeping: :sleeping:

No clue what I am doing wrong. My device syncs fine on XP/ActiveSync but I can't even open up the WM Device Center on Vista. When I double click the option in Control Panel it brings up the connection settings (and says the device is connected). But it won't open up or allow me to sync.

Fix it - and when you do then I will upgrade to Vista :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
