    I have Windows 7 64 bit RC. The novacom drivers were able to install but the service never started. The method that did work (brilliantly) was installing the XP virtualization and following the steps again. Now the Pre emulator works too (all within XP though). Great fix, thanks.

    Vista users may want to try "Virtual PC 2007" you can get it here

    8. Important!: At the top of the Virtual Windows XP window click USB and then "Pre Attach"
    I installed the "Virtual PC 2007" but I don't see how to do step 9 ?????

    So you've clicked all around within Virtual PC 2007 and you see no way of attaching the Pre via USB to the virtual OS?

    Apparently it doesn't have the "attach external USB" option, which is critical for this to work ... Maybe another virtual os software package does? VMware?

    I have updated my original post to include a note about this.

Of course don't forget about the phone being in dev mode, and in "just charge".

    This is what worked for me, it is a lot of restarting which of course may not be needed, but for me it worked good luck, and don't give up.
    I did what you said an it work for me. Thanks to everybody for all your imputs

    I didn't see any virtual Pre on my PC. In fact, when I clicked on the Palm Emulator icon it did nothing.

    One other thing I want to point out is that I tried emailing myself the .ipk files yesterday when I had not installed the 1.0.4 updated. When I clicked on the URL from within the email on the phone it did not install the app after de-highlighting. In the past I've been able to install apps (before a week or so) using the email method, but was not able to do it this week. So, I updated the OS and tried your method, but it's not working for me. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    When I try to install the app the command prompt shows up but doesn't run any scripts and doesn't install the app.

    I love the guide. When i tried doing this on my computer i accidently skipped all of step one, so novatel failed to install on my pre. I went back and did step one but now i cant figure out how to get novatel onto my pre when it attached to my computer... I knw thats a stupid mistake, but a little help would be appreciated.

    Cannot get the Emulator to work, but after my troubles I can get the apps loaded. Woo hoo.
    I have it working on my Vista Home Basic laptop but not on my Vista Home Premium desktop. I tried running everything as admin, even typing through the command prompt so that could run as admin. It didn't work for me.

    Oddly, the laptop worked on the first attempt, without specifying admin.

    I imagine this may have already been covered, but I don't have the same computer at work as I do at home, so I prefer using ipkg install over the SDK method. You don't need to open the filesystem for writing in /var, apparently, and if you make your own ipkg.conf file defining /var as root, you can still delete the applications with red key + icon.

    I've copied the ipkg.conf file, and placed in my /var/home/%user% directory

    Code:
    dest root /var
    and made an install.sh
    Code:
    ipkg -f /var/home/%user%/ipkg.conf install /media/internal/$1
    so after copying files into the root of the usb drive, I log in and sudo ./install.sh package.ipk

    seems easier than all that SDK stuff IMHO.

    Are you using a 64bit OS? if so you'll have to go back through these post and either virtually boot windows XP or use a windows XP / 32 bit vista to get it to work.

    Just a quick post to confirm that the instructions provided in the OP work for a WinXP virtual machine running on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) as the guest OS. I am using VirtualBox v2.2.4 on Linux to provide the WinXP (small environment, just 8GB HDD and 256 MB RAM) environment. I use this environment only specifically for point-tasks that cannot be done outside of Windows. The only notes are
    1) Yes you will need VirtualBox on the Windows side still.
    2) You'll need to enable the Pre device on the VirtualBox Devices-> USB Devices menu option before Windows will recognize the Pre as a Novacom device.

    Has anyone successfully used VirtualBox to install Windows XP on Vista 64bit and then gone into settings -> usb to attach the pre?

    This worked great. One time.... Now, no matter what I do, I can not get it to install anything again. WTF? Am I missing something? I'm still in developer mode. Hitting USB charge. Running install.bat.... No love anymore..
