Zune on Vista Part Duex

Even though the support wizards at Zune told me it wasn't compatible, I had a hunch it had more to do with me trying to install the previous version of ZuneSetup (the one that wasn't Windows Vista compatible) than the version of Vista I was using. Sure enough, in the comments and through my own confirmation I found this to be false. I re-imaged my laptop with a fresh install of Windows Vista Enterprise and ZuneSetup 1.2.5511.0 installed like a champ. My only complaint now is that I cannot authenticate my DRM from behind my company's firewall. I'll need to get all my song's authorized at home first.

Zune Has Worst. Support. Ever.

As I posted yesterday, Zune finally released its Windows Vista compatible client. I had called Zune support two times previously and had gotten credible support. However, this was terrible. After gleefully downloading the new update, I would launch ZuneSetup and then I would be told "No Zune Software Updates Available." I rebooted, tried it a couple of times again, always getting the same result. I am running Windows Vista RTM Enterprise edition. After totally stumping the level one technician who offered advice like "lower all of your IE security zone settings to the lowest option and turn off your anti-virus and pop-up blockers" I was escalated to level two. This gentleman had even less advice to offer. Is it the right version? Yes, 1.2.5511.0. Did you download it from www.Zune.net? Yes. "Let me check some things; can I put you on hold?" Please. He comes back on the line and asks me what version of Vista I am using. RTM Enterprise. "That's your problem. This update doesn't support Enterprise Edition. That update comes out in January." Excuse me? "This update only supports the Home edition." Say what? Let me get this straight: the most downloaded and used versions right now (Business, Enterprise and Ultimate) are not supported, but the Home edition, which wont go in to wide distribution until January 30th, works now with this update? "That is what I was told." Ugh. Shoot me now. If anyone has installed the new version on the Enterprise Edition of RTM Vista, please let me know.

This guy didn't fare much better!

The Zune team has finally released a version of the software and marketplace that is officially compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista. I have not installed it yet so I cannot vouch for the performance but I will have it in place tonight and will let you know if any glitches turn up. Read more about it at the Zune blog here.

(image) From on10.net comes a link to some great XBox 360 themed wallpapers for your Zune. Now, if only I could sync my damn Zune with Windows Vista. Rumor has it that internally all the Microsofties have the patch that makes the Zune software Vista compliant, but the rest of us have to wait until, oh yeah, consumer availability of Windows Vista in anothe4 45 days. Come on, wrap it in the "beta" verbiage like everything else and let us download it already!! Zune wallpapers courtesy of 360style.net; a sweet XBox lifestyle site.
