i am running vista , i  was using a verizon um150 broadband modem ,worked great .I uninstalled
the um 150 ,and went to install the new um 175 , It is suppoed to load throught the vzaccess software install.
The software installs fine untill it get to the end and is trying to install pantech 175 usb modem.
where i get a general install error  pantech device drivers, what is bad i cant go back and install the um 150 now it wont let me install either the 150 or the 175 . I have manaully uninstalled the drivers from the device manger ,uninstalled the vzaccess app,still wont install either drivers.
Any ideas would be appeciated.

Watch Question

Is the Pantech card listed in the add/remove programs?  If so remove it.  Also remove VZ access manager.  After this is done go into C:\Program Files and remove any VZ or Pantech folders.  Reboot and run the install again.
What you can try is:

Unplug the modem from the PC.
Remove everything, VZ access manager, and the pantech entries in the add/remove programs. Then open up the device manager and remove any of the pantech modem entries in there, if any. Then reboot your computer.

Now run the VZ access manager install setup but dont plug the modem in yet. During the setup it should ask you to insert the modem. Then plug it in.  It should install it fine then.

Hope this helps
