Tethering with HTC Touch Pro and Windows 7 WITHOUT using Verizon software

So I had to reload my laptop last night.. and I am trying to figure out exactly how I had set up tethering on my HTC Touch Pro (Verizon).. I am 95% certain I did NOT use the bundled Verizon software to initially set up the phone on my laptop..  I used something else just built into Windows 7... or set it up outside of the Verizon software... and I did NOT have to use Verizon software to enable tethering either - I know that or 100% sure.  

I found and loaded a modem driver (WModem Driver) for the phone off a HTC/Verizon related forum, put the phone into 'Modem link' mode, hooked up the USB cable, then I had a network connection under my 'Connect to' in Windows 7 for "Verizon" which turned on the tethering -- All that connection did was dial a 3 digit code.. like #223 or something.. I don't remember the specific numbers though.

I have the driver reinstalled.. Windows 7 sees my phone.. Mobile device center sees my phone.. but I can't remember how I created that connection to Verizon (the connection that dialed the 3 digit code to enable tethering)... I just need to get that network connection for Verizon set back up Windows and that's where I am getting stuck.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about??

I looked over that link and it doesn't seem familiar.. I don't recall downloading/installing a 50mb app to get it working.. It used the driver + Windows Dial up Networking..  I just need the settings for the Dial Up Networking piece, basically..

I am downloading that HTCSync listed in your link and I will give it a go and report back.. but I don't think that's what I am looking for.. I need those DUN settings for the Verizon/Tethering connection.. maybe I did install the VZ Access Manager and that's what created my DUN connection..then I uninstalled it later.. but I know all I had to do was plug in the phone, put it in Modem mode and initiate the DUN connection and I was good to go..

Correct, the phone is WM6.. my OS on my laptop is Windows 7... sorry I just realized there is in fact a Windows 7 Mobile now too!..

But as I said.. Driver + DUN connection = Tethering.. that's what I am trying to get back to..

Ok.. I figured it out.. It WAS the VZA Software that created the DUN Connection..  That's all I needed it to do.. I was able to uninstall VZAccess and it left the DUN Connection in place and it all works how I had it before.. (posting this reply from Tethering now!)

Ah well.. after I disconnected, it nuked my DUN Connecction!  lol.. dangit.  Well I guess I MUST have left the VZAccess software installed.. but just used the DUN to make the connection instead of the VZA..  

Oh well, I got it going though.. thanks for the assistance in the matter.
