Workaround for Samsung Update Plus Error

This was reposted from the Ultimate Ultra Mobile PC Blog:

For those of you who have had issues with the Samsung Update Plus software on Windows Vista, a reader of this site found a workaround that I was able to verify.

I tried this on my Samsung Q1-UV Ultra Mobile PC and it works, no more dwLoadStatus != SLU_Load_Finished error! It should work on just about any Windows Vista system, even if it's not an Ultra Mobile.

Instructions:
1. Remove the Windows Vista version of Samsung Update Plus.
2. Install the Windows XP version of Samsung Update Plus (ver.1.2.0.13) found here.
3. Run it.

I tried this a while back when I initially ran into the problem, but I used the Windows XP software from the supplied restore discs and it didn't work. This must be a newer version and although there were no updates for my Ultra Mobile PC, the update was able to complete without any errors.

I hope this helps.
