    Okay;
    my collegues inquire...

    Getting a lot of calls today about the compatibility of BBDTM 5.0 with Win7

    I have the evaluation copy of win7 activated and 5.0 and it works just fine.
    However, there have been at least 5-10 people with issues with the compatibility.
    No info anywhere.
    Anybody shed any light on the subject.

    BBDTM5 has some issues, but Microsoft has them covered.

    Depending on their setup, some might have to run it in XP mode. But before you have them do that, make 100% sure the've run Windows Update until no patches are left to get.

    again; see... now did some research and found a fix on blackberry.com for the registry.
    here's the link for anyone who needs it.

    I've been running Win 7 and BDM 5 for at least 2 months now with no issues at all. Works perfectly. This is with a clean install of Win7 and that may make a difference.

    This is a registry fix for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, not Windows 7. This registry fix was posted back in 2007.
