Standard Modem?

Blackberry Desktop software is supposed to install the "standard modem" in windows so that I can use my BB as a tethered modem.  I have a new Gateway laptop with Vista Home Premium.  When I install the Desktop software it does NOT install the standard modem...the only thing there is the modem that came with the laptop.  I have disabled all antivirus software and run the install as Administrator and that doesn't do it either.  I have done this successfully on both an XP desktop and a different Vista laptop, so I know how it's supposed to go, but I can't make it happen on this particular machine.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
