BB Bold 9000 Synch ok with DM4.2 but not DM4.6 on Vista / Outlook 2007

Hi all.


Upgraded from a BB8820 to the BB 9000.  What an amazing device, i must say.


I was running BB Internet Service with my old BB8820 and was on BB DM4.2 installed on a Vista laptop synching with Outlook 2007


I got the new Bold up and running (backup, restore, sync) without a hitch still on DM4.2.  I wanted to use MediaSync and so tried to install 4.6 from the CD.  cannot get it to complete a synchronization of Outlook stuff without DM4.6 hanging and shutting down. it will get through the the address books, but when it is synching the calendar items, it will hang and shut down.  I have tried to uninstall and then reinstall multiple times.  I have also tried the clean uninstall and registry wipe once and still no success.  after one whole day of this, i just reinstalled DM4.2 and that is working.  



WHy cant i get DM4.6 to work?  also I noticed that the synch progress is much slower on DM4.6 than on DM4.2.  is this normal?


hope to get some help.
