TVSU 5 on T61p Win7 SP1

2013-07-30, 18:01 PM

Greetings All Experts;

   I am testing Win7 SP1 on a T61p 6458 series. Using VMWare Player. When attempting to run TVSU error message "There are no update packages available for your system" occurs. It stops at 17% in the Help Center phase. I checked on the previous fix for pre SP1 release and all the XML info is there but not in the folder where it should be.

   Will this not function in a virtual setting ? Any expertise appreciated.

Sincerely,

Donald

Hello,


I haven't tried this myself, but I would think that if ThinkVantage System Update were run inside a virtual machine, it would detect the virtualized "generic" hardware and not the hosts "native" hardware, so it probably cannot detect that it is being run on a ThinkPad and erroring out when it goes to detect the hardware.

Aryeh

   Thanks for the response. I thought about it after my post and it probably does detect generic hardware. Even tried with MS VPC 2007 and the same result. So I'll manually DL the updates and take it from there. Thanks again. I'll consider this question solved.

Sincerely,

Donald
