ThinkVantage GPS instantly crashes in Vista Ultimate x64

2009-05-23, 22:05 PM
My W500 laptop came with XP preloaded and the GPS application started up fine. Now I installed Vista Ultimate x64, as well as all drivers I could find on the official website, and GPS does not work anymore. As soon as I start it, there is an immediate crash. Device manager does not show a single unknown device plugged in. I have the Ericcson F3507g module and the laptop came with a SIM card for it, which is installed. Can anyone shed some light on this situation?

I didn't know thinkvantage has a GPS app, where did you get it?

 

I'm not an expert at all, but I suggest to see if all what you downloaded are for x64. And also chek if you really need it. I installed windows 7 to try it and is working better than vista without any download of anything.

The GPS app is just past the middle on the drivers page, http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70443

 

I am a little weary of using Windows 7 because it's RC still. Though with all those positive reviews floating around, I may jump on board soon.
