4G Firmware Update

Installed my MiFi 4510L without a hitch a few weeks ago, upgrading from my previous MiFi 2200.  I'm running it on WinXp SP3 

 

Very satisfied initially, but last week I was prompted to update the firmware.  I clicked as requested & it looked like it was gonna go until near the end.  I get a message "Error 1720. There is a problem with the Windows Installer package.  A script required for this install to complete could not be run.  Contact your support personnel".......blah, blah, yadda yadda.

 

I had the same problem with my MiFi 2200 and never got it resolved - the 2200 worked just fine w/o the updates.

 

I did some keyword lookups on the net and the Error 1720 problem with VZW firmware updates is widespread.  I never found anyone who had solved that problem.  Most said that VZW techno-wizards blamed Windows and the Windows weenies blamed the writers of the update program.  

 

I ain't gettin' paid to fix VZW's problem - you know they know about it, why don't they fix it?

 

Anybody had a similar experience?  Or found a solution?

 

With the MifFi 4510L, the annoying thing now is getting a prompt to update every time I sign on. Right now, I just click do it later and then connect.  Maybe I can get VZW tech support to just turn off the update notices???
