    Preware's installs works the same as WebOS Quick Install. If you can't get a connection working with WOSQI, then Preware's desktop install won't change things

    Are you in developer mode?

    What do you mean installed? There is nothing to install!

    Make sure the WebOsDoctor.jar,WebOsQuickInstall.jar are in the same file on your computer.

    Make sure they both have the .jar suffix, sometime they are labeled .download. If this is the case rename the files to .jar

    Again make sure you are in developer mode.

    Then plug in your Pre and choose just charge.

    Click on the WebOsQuickInstall.jar file and you should be connected!

    One thought: Did you verify that it's running? Check; this was a problem for me back when I installed QI. If Novacom isn't running, you can install it manually. See instructions here: http://forums.precentral.net/web-os-...er-method.html
    It doesn't matter if you're not using Windows 7; I'm running Vista, and these instructions worked. As I recall, it wasn't difficult, and it saved me a growing headache.

    using PreWare Installer wont make any difference, If it dont work w/ WOSQI then it wont Work Period....

    You have an issue w/ some other patch thats not compatible?

    What patches do you have? and which patch are you trying to install?

    That happened to me when I first tried to install it myself, after you create a new folder and place the Preware, WebOsInstall, and Webdoctor in the same folder, reboot your computer and plug in your phone to make sure your computer recognizes your Pre. Then it should work in a snap. Once I did that it was simple, before that I was thinking it couldn't be this difficult.

    What patches do you have? and which patch are you trying to install?
    yeah thats probably it. i have 42 patches i think?

    4x4 icons v3, all day events in month view, allow browser in low mem, audio/vid attachmnts, battery icon and percent, capture (pics) with volume keys, change launcher opacity, command line, compose to email, date as carrier string, default to month view, delete (email) from notification, enable add/delete pages, enable landscape pdf viewer, enable vibration (its either dialer or calculator), full im status, gestureclick context menu, gps in device menu, hide: [amazon mp3, music player, nascar, quick launch bar], improve file name format (photo), lower swap threshold, multi mod, new card per convo, no auto off wile charging, no battery level, open to alarm list, powersave cpu scaling 500mhz, reset to first page, show actual battery percent, slider blocks orientation change, swipe history/auto confirm, iswipe t delete videos, unhide dev mode icon, unthrottle download manager, uscl memos patch, video downloads (youtube), wrap location field, wrap pages


    improve file name format might have something to do with it. im trying to get the patch here to work. i can install it fine, but it doesnt work. its supposed to let you delete a "line/row" of photos (3 photos) faster or reorganize lines of photos. i can do both of those things with this patch, but it doesnt save what i did (if i close the photo app or gesture out/back from the photo roll, the lines of photos that i reorganized or deleted are back the way they were when i return). the app works for everyone else

    try removing improve file name format and see if that helps.

    PC > Add/delete programs > uninstall Novacomd first

    after that completes, now try to reinstall:

    WebOS Quick Install > File > options > Reinstall Novacom
