2.1 Execuable Not Working, RUU Setup

    I have been trying for hours now to get my HTC Hero phone upgraded to 2.1, but am still having problems. After fixing my HTC Sync issue, now I have the RUU Setup (2.1 Executable to upgrade) to deal with.

    I try to open the executable file, both normally and as administrator, but all it would give me is a loading screen for about four seconds. The loading bar would go to the end, and then close down. The wizard does not pop up at all. Can I get any help with this? It's been four hours since I've tried doing this.

    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit

    Sadly that did not work, although now I notice that the Setup wizard does pop up, but for a fraction of a second. Then it disappears. I have downloaded many different variants of the exe file, but nothing.

    Worst case scenario, I'll just go to a Sprint store tomorrow and let them do it. Anyone else have a suggestion and I'd be glad to hear it.

    You could try turning off any anti-virus program temporarily

    I'm having the same issue.
    Anyone come up with a solution?
    I have temporarily uninstalled anti-virus and disabled system restore.
    Not sure what else to do?

    Do you already have Sync installed and is it functional?

    When I downloaded the SPRINT OFFICIAL 2.1 Update from one of the MIRROR sites, I had the same trouble. I then went to Sprint's website (Sprint - Software Downloads - Select your device type) and downloaded the update and all worked as expected.

    As was previously stated, there is obviously problems with some of the reported download links on this forum.
