Default LG Mobile USB Modem driver won't install

Hello, I have been trying to do the new 2.2 root thing but have come across a problem when trying to install the ally drivers. All of them work except for the LG Mobile USB Modem which seems to be important because when I try to use the LGMobile Updater it says my phone is not connected to my computer when it clearly is. I am on Windows Vista and have tried many different things to get this to work because non rooted phones suck. I was wondering if anyone else had any similar problems and if anyone can help me it would be much appreciated!

Hey Mike. I had the same issue and had to use Death2All's alternative method. The first thing you should try though is running the LG updater as an administrator. Also, change the properties to be compatible with lower versions of windows. If those two things don't work, use Death2All's alternative.

I could never get the drivers to work either on my Vista laptop, ended up using one of my sons laptops with XP Pro, had no problems with it.
