Exclamation Windows 7 - Hates WMDC

Apparently, "Device Stage" is the new thing to have to connect your phone to your computer.

I just got a fresh install of Windows 7, and can not locate Device Stage. Nor, a exe file for it.

How is everyone connecting their Touch Pro to Windows 7 x64??

Re: Windows 7 - Hates WMDC

I connect touch pro by usb or bluetooth without any problem with windows 7 but I use windows 7 x86 (32bit). Has you installed activesyn 4.5? I like windows 7 more than windows vista the way I connect touch pro thru bluetooth connection, it works much better.

Re: Windows 7 - Hates WMDC

Windows 7 automatic installed WMDC upon dectecting my touch pro. Everything works as it did in Vista. The new device stage not yet supports the windows mobile devices.

Have used windows 7 WMDC and used activesync 4.5 within a win 7's virtualized XP. Both work properly.

Re: Windows 7 - Hates WMDC

If you have the beta version, you may have to manually install WMDC. If you have the RC version, it will install all required software automatically.

Re: Windows 7 - Hates WMDC

I'm on x32 7100 and no -huge- issues here. It's pretty slow at picking up the phone for the first time but it works ok. It worked better in the leaked alpha build (you know, the one without the superbar)... but no complaints here.

Re: Windows 7 - Hates WMDC

any of you flashing with win7? I tried it a few days back, but it acted like it couldn't find the phone. This was on build 7000 though, and I haven't put any energy into researching it.
