Question RUU for Windows 7

After upgrading my pc to win 7, I have problem with flashing my device and most probably I think the problem is with non compatibility between RUU & win7 ,that's because windows give an error message and close RUU automaticaly.
the problem is with both XP_RUU and Vista_RUU .
Please help with this.

I don't have the Windows 7 beta installed anymore, so I'm not even sure this is possible, but if you can, install and run ActiveSync in degraded mode (XP), and do the same for the RUU (run in degraded mode). That might work, or it might brick your phone. I'd say about 50% either way.

Grab a copy of vmware player. Install XP in the virtual machine. Try for building the virtual machine. Install Active Sync 4.5 on the Vm and you are set to go. When you plug your wizard into the PC, if the VM is in the foreground the usb will be redirected to the VM instead of windows 7.

I have been using this method to flash my wizard and has never failed. Much safer than a 50/50 chance of bricking your fone
