7290 sync software

I'm trying to find the sync software for my Blackberry 7290. I need it to sync with Outlook and my machine's OS is Vista. I've downloaded several versions. From what I can see, version 4.1 is what I need but it doesn't show as being compatible with Vista. Can anyone tell me where to get the software?

Re: 7290 sync software



I did try version 4.5. It installs on Vista great, but doesn't recognize my blackberry as being plugged in. I went back to 4.1 (finally found a link to it), that apparently works on XP but not with Vista (which is what I need it to work on). I did try 4.1 on Vista anyway, but it wouldn't even start.


I'm going to try version 4.5 again (I've tried 4.3 and 4.2 as well which also did not recognize my device).


Thanks for the reply, btw. I'm open to whatever suggestions. If I could run XP on my notebook, I would.. but office says "Vista"! Dag nab it....
