What happened to "Thinkpad Configuration" for the T61?

Upgraded from a T41 to a T61, and used to use the Thinkpad Configuration utility quite a bit.  However, it doesn't seem to be available for the T61 at all.  Anyone know what happened and why it's not offerred for the T61?  I tried the Thinkvantage Productivity Center, but it's nowhere near the features/functions that are available in the Thinkpad Configuration utility.  Thanks

Thanks for your reply.   I don't have a "Help Center" app on my machine, and didn't find one to download on the Lenovo site.  Where do you find this?

My T60 2008-cto had the Thinkpad Configuration as a stand alone app but my new T61 8892-o2u does not. I was also looking for it.

 

Lenovo now has it as part of something else. It is now under RESOURCE CENTER in HELP AND SUPPORT. When you get there click on LEARN ABOUT MY COMPUTER. That is now the replacement for Thinkpad Configuration app.

 

 

Make sure you have the latest updates for ThinkVantage first.

You can download it from the T60 download page:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS013795

 

I also have it installed on my X61s (as well as T61 not officially supported Smiley Wink)

 

The development of Thinkpad Configuration Utility had been stopped at withdrawn of the T60 - generation.
