    My 700w headphone jack quit working last week and today I was on the phone with Verizon support trying to get a replacement. During my discussions with the tech support specialist, I asked about the Treo 700w updater, and when it was coming back.

    He told me NOT to install it as 9 out of 10 people who installed it had their phones crash(No wonder they pulled the patch). It required a full reinstall to bring the phones back. He didn't have an estimated time for the new patch.

    I also asked about A2DP but he had no information. <sigh>

    The only good news from the call was Verizon is going to replace my phone. Wooo!

    9 out of 10? That doesn't match the data we see here. Someone said the site was supposed to be back up at 6pm...

    Thanks for the updater update;

    Now, someone needs to post an update confirming the updating ability of the updated updater;

    I mean -- I need to know if the updated updater is an upgrade over the unupdated updater;

    ummm-----

    From the Palm Update site about the latest release of the updater.

    Note: This update has not been modified from the one posted earlier on the Palm.com web site. This download includes changes that affect the installation process only. If you have already run the Treo 700w Updater 1.10 successfully, you do not need this update.

    Good News!! The updated updater works. I just finished updating my Treo. Took about 20 minutes and was completely successful. (I was one of those people who had the process never get past the copying files stage with the first release of the updater.)

    Because the original failed update left my Treo thinking it was already updated to 1.10, I did have to manually change the "vers" file in \Program Files\Palm\Treo700wUpdater to read 1.105. Once I made that change the update went without a hitch.

    Woo hoo!!!

    Did you get the "0.77 ENG" screen that everyone was talking about?

    I ran the new updater also and during the 'executing' stage it had a screenshot of the 0.77 ENG screen was normal and that I should wait 20 min.

    Yep... you get the "0.77 ENG" screen for about 20 minutes -- the entire Part 2 of the process.

    I tried upgrading earlier today and ran in to a problem, but the problem was with my system, not the upgrade file. I'm posting this in the event someone else might run into this problem.

    What happened was that after downloading and unzipping the updater file, double-clicking on the desktop icon opened index.hta file in notepad. After about 30 minutes on the phone with Verizon and Palm tech, we discovered that for some unknown reason, the file types on my PC launched notepad instead of the correct application, so I went into Folder Types and edited the application to read:

    c:\windows\system32\mshta.exe "%1" %*

    After that, the updater worked just fine.

    Derene: Oh, so that's how they're doing the desktop stuff.

    MSHTA comes w/ IE, so the IE installation should've set this up for you. Which version of Windows and which version of IE do you have?

    They just posted the Treo UPDATER 1.10 on the palm web site again.

    Just out of curiosity, what does your Treo say now? Are you 1.10 or 1.105?

    Windows XP Pro
    IE7 Beta 2

    Bold of you to try IE7!

    I wonder if IE7 removes the association for security reasons. Nobody likes HTAs as they're basically HTML w/o all the IE security "checks."

    I am having the same problem. Can you explain to a dummy like me exactly how/where you changed the folder type?
    Thanks a million.

    1. Open File Explorer
    2. Tools Menu, selected Options
    3. Hit the File Types tab
    4. Look for .HTA in the list, if it's not there, add it.
    5. Set the Open value to the line above

    That should do it. Are you IE7 as well? Or are you on a system that has been "secured" by removing this launch item?

    Sweet! Worked like a charm! Now I am off to update the Treo.
    BTW, I am using IE6.

    Hotrod,

    My Treo shows 1.10. I think the "vers" file just compares against the number reported by the treo and is not invovled at all with the actual numbering of the update.
