I have a Win XP Pro SP3 laptop with a Pantec PC5750 data card. It works fine. But, the last VZAccess update (7.3.11) fails. When detecting the data card it checks then powers down the card. I reverted back to ver. 188.8.131.52 and all is good again. Anyone have the same issue or have any idea what might fix this?
I have provided some information below that may help.
Step 1 – Ensure that a clean uninstall is perform on VZ Access manager before installing the new version.
Step 2 – Remove the USB/PC card
Step 3 – Restart the computer.
Step 4 – Download the VZ Access manager from the website www.vzam.net and save the proper file on the desktop. (select Save As instead of Run)
Step 5 – Plug in the USB/PC card
Step 6 – Install the new version of VZ Access manager on the PC.
Step 7 – Run through the setup and activate the card (if it is not yet activated)
Finally got around to trying your suggestion (although I had done it before). I downloaded the latest VZ Access mgr (although it was the same as I already had). I ran uninstall from add/remove programs. I removed my card and rebooted. I plugged in my card and ran install for the new version (FYI-Setup required me to remove the card). Once setup completed, I reinstalled the card and started the app. It finds the card okay and begins configuration. Then it says "powering down modem" or something to that effect. Same as before.
I uninstalled this latest version (VZAM_7.3.11_2566a_Pantec.exe) and reinstalled VZAM_7.2.1_2420b_Pantec_RevA.exe) and all is good again. I'm afraid I'm baffled.
